Chris Stapleton’s “Tennessee Whiskey” Sells Over 10 Million Units
UMG Nashville’s President, Cindy Mabe, and Executive VP/A&R, Brian Wright, present Chris Stapleton with a prestigious Diamond plaque in recognition of “Tennessee Whiskey” surpassing 10 million units sold.
The presentation took place at Stapleton’s second of two sold-out shows at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena over the weekend.
Tennessee Whiskey, off of Chris Stapleton’s 2015 album Traveller, was one of his greatest hits, and the song that put him on the map of mainstream country music.
Stapleton’s version of David Allan Coe’s classic country song, which was originally recorded and covered by George Jones, turned it into a bluesy honky-tonk jam that showcased his incredible vocals.
