Chris Stapleton has gained some great recognition in the past two years.

Since the release of Traveller, his debut album, he’s been on an upward trajectory. His album sold more than 2 million copies and has been certified double platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America, according to Nash Country Daily.

His second album, which released in May this year, From A Room: Vol. 1, rose to No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart.

He said of his fame:

“The good far outweighs any negative. There’s a slight loss of privacy that comes with it, but you also get to do great things. You get the opportunity to do charitable things and help people—like really help people—not just with a song. Those things far outweigh any kind of negativity that may come from [fame]. It’s a trade-off. But I think most people would trade it if they knew you got to do some really great things with it.”
