American country and bluegrass musician signed to Universal Music Group Nashville, Christopher Stapleton’s net worth is estimated to be $1 million.

Born on April 15, 1978 in Lexington, Kentucky to coal miner father and health department worker mother, Christopher Lexington attended Vanderbilt University to pursue engineering, but dropped a year after to move to Tennessee and pursue a career in music.

An established songwriter today, Lexington worked for about 15 years and signed for Warner/Chappell music as a solo artist. His bluegrass education helped him co-found The SteelDrivers, a Grammy-nominated band that released its first album in 2008. Stapleton founded another band, The Jompson Brothers in 2010, and worked for three years before leaving to start a solo career in 2013.

Known for his gritty vocals and habit of killing off characters, he signed for Mercury Nashville and released his debut album Traveller on May 5, 2015 that won him three CMA Awards in 2015, including ‘Album of the Year’, ‘New Artist of the Year’ and ‘Male Vocalist of the Year’.

A budding artist in the country music scene, Chris Stapleton’s net worth comes from the sales of his albums and as a songwriter while his contribution to the soundtracks of movies like Cars 2, and Valentine’s day adds more to his bank. This country crooner has also made appearances on popular television shows like Late Show with David Letterman, ABC’s The View, Late Night with Seth Meyers, among others.

Married to singer-songwriter Morgane Stapleton, Chris lives with his wife and two sons in Nashville and enjoys a net worth of $1 million.

Thanks to Timberlake’s star power, millions of people learned who Chris Stapleton was, including many in the country music industry who simply hadn’t given the newcomer the attention he deserved.
