Long before Chris Stapleton became an overnight sensation following his epic run at the 2015 CMA Awards, he was just the son of a coal miner with dreams of Music City. But, Stapleton took those dreams and ran with them all the way from his small Kentucky hometown to Nashville where he made a name for himself as a songwriter, then a bluegrass musician-turned-country artist. 

Chris Stapleton won the hearts of millions with his dynamic collaboration with Justin Timberlake at the CMA Awards in November. It didn’t hurt that he backed up the epic performance with a recording-breaking winning streak becoming the first artist to win Album of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year and New Artist of the Year at the same awards show.

Part of Stapleton’s appeal is his humility, his unique bluesy sound, and his signature look. Believe it or not, Stapleton’s beard hasn’t always been a part of his look. A few years ago, when Chris Stapleton was a hidden Nashville gem still undiscovered by country radio, the “Traveller” singer shared some photos of himself sans beard on Instagram. See the pics below and let us know what you think!
