After being crowned Male Vocalist of the Year at the 2022 CMA Awards, November continues to provide more reasons to celebrate for Chris Stapleton. The Kentucky artist has received two new RIAA Platinum certifications for his 2017 tracks, ‘Either Way’ and ‘Broken Halos’.

‘Broken Halos’ has now gone four-times Platinum, while ‘Either Way’ has earned its first Platinum certification. Both were singles from Stapleton's highly acclaimed From A Room: Vol. 1 album.

‘Either Way’, a more subdued, soulful offering than ‘Broken Halos’, was released as the first single from the project. Although it was written by Stapleton alongside Tim James and Kendell Marvel, the song was originally recorded by Lee Ann Womack in 2008. Stapleton's version went on to win the gong for Best Country Solo Performance at the 60th Grammy Awards.

Aside from ‘Tennessee Whiskey’, ‘Broken Halos’ remains one of the most widely loved jewels in Stapleton's discographic crown. The single won a Grammy for Best Country Song in 2017, as well as earning Stapleton the Single of the Year and Song of the Year titles at the 52nd CMA Awards the following year.

It caps off a busy end to 2022 for Stapleton, having released his new single, ‘I'm A Ram’ on November 11, before taking to the stage at the 56th CMA Awards to perform ‘You'll Never Leave Harlan Alive’ alongside Patty Loveless.

The country star has also been added to the line-up of a slew of 2023 festivals, such as Cavendish Beach Music Festival, Buckeye Country Superfest and Rock the South. In addition to this, Stapleton is set to play a number of blockbuster dates with the ‘King of Country’, George Strait.
