Just give all the CMA Awards to Chris Stapleton, really.

About last night— DANG, that was a memorable show! The CMA Awards‘ big winner of the night, Chris Stapleton, and Tennessee native pop star Justin Timberlake took the stage together for a “Tennessee Whiskey” and “Drink You Away” mashup. They KILLED it and brought the audience to their feet. Pretty sure the talented Mr. Stapleton just made himself a household name.

This needs to be on iTunes NOW. Goodness.
