For those of us who know and love country music, Chris Stapleton, and his brilliant album Traveller, was one of our best kept secrets…until tonight. Between winning a handful of awards and literally melting the stage with Justin Timberlake, the Twitterverse was full of tweets about Stapleton.
In case you missed it, Stapleton swept the three categories he was nominated in, sending people into a tizzy.
While there were quite a few people asking “Who the hell is Chris Stapleton?” there were also a lot of other hilarious and terrifying tweets.
See some of our faves below:
There was this dude who definitely wasn’t happy about it:
@CountryMusic Chris Stapleton winning all these awards is an absolute joke.

Why is this a bad thing?
Literally don't think I've heard Chris Stapleton once on the radio

I’d pay to see him on a trampoline TBH.

We’re asking the same thing:
Okay @ChrisStapleton who are you, and how is your voice that good?

Not going to say we agree, but…
The fact that Chris Stapleton beat out pretty boys Thomas Rhett/Sam Hunt for album of the year gives me hope for the future of country music
