Entertainer of the Year Chris Stapleton Stayed Behind to Help Clean Up After the ACMs

Chris Stapleton cleaned up (literally) at the Academy of Country Music Awards.  The country singer took home the Entertainer of the Year award during the broadcast and was photographed helping to clean up following the show.

The singer expressed his shock at winning the biggest award of the night saying, “Well, I am in shock. Truly. Thank you. By any imaginable metric, I don’t deserve this but thank you. There are so many other great people in this category. I stand up and I play music. That’s what I try to do every night…I’ve never thought of myself as somebody who would win this award, and I’m so grateful.”

Later Chris was photographed literally cleaning up confetti backstage with a leaf blower.

Fans chimed in on the comments with one writing, “This man’s character is an award in itself.”  Another shared, “The man is a legend, true to his soul. Great shot. ❤️ Loved when he choked up mentioning his children; always a Dad first, but loves making music for the world.”
