There's perhaps no one else in this world who knows more about how much work Chris Stapleton puts into his music than his wife, Morgane. She's been there with him through all stages of his career, from his days as one of Nashville's most sought-after songwriters to the release of his debut solo album, Traveller.
But surely, neither Chris nor Morgane ever anticipated how one performance would instantly send both of them to a level of fame others can only dream of. After Chris took to the stage at the CMA Awards with Justin Timberlake in November 2015, everything changed. His popularity soared, his album generated award nominations and wins faster than anyone could count, and he quickly became one of country music's biggest stars.
To go from being relatively unknown to sudden superstar status overnight had to have been an exciting thing for Chris and Morgane after all of their years of hard work. Since his breakout CMA moment, Chris has been touring across the country along with Morgane, who always stands by his side on stage and sings background vocals.
By now, Chris and Morgane have performed together many times before. But there was something about their show at the Greek Theater in Berkeley, California that was special for Morgane.
In a fan-captured video from the concert, Morgane can be seen wiping tears away from her eyes while Chris stands by her side. So what caused Morgane to start crying in the middle of a concert? The reason for Morgane's tears is because just prior to the moment that the video was taken, the entire crowd had been singing along to one of Chris' signature songs, "Traveller."
Hearing the whole crowd singing one of Chris' songs was an understandably moving moment for Morgane, who travelled along with him on the road he took to get to where he is now. But knowing that they had to move on with the show, Morgane worked to pull herself together.
"Now y'all quit cause y'all are making my mascara run," she said.
Chris started playing the first few notes to another one of his songs, "Fire Away," as Morgane regained her composure to prepare for her part. You can watch the emotional moment in the video below.
Once you watch this, don't be surprised if you find yourself needing to wipe away your own tears.
