Watch Chris Stapleton’s Stunning Performance of “Starting Over” at the CMA Awards

Chris Stapleton may not have taken home any trophies at the CMA Awards on Nov. 11, but he reminded everyone watching why he is regarded as one of music’s finest vocalists—in any genre—with a breathtaking performance of his new single, “Starting Over.”

Penned by Chris and Mike Henderson, “Starting Over” is the title track to Chris’ upcoming album, which drops on Nov. 13.

The new song features Chris crooning the uplifting chorus: “And it don’t matter to me / Wherever we are is where I want to be / And honey for once in our lives / Let’s take our chances and roll the dice / And I can be your lucky penny / You can be my four-leaf clover / Starting over.”

Watch Chris’ performance below.

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

When you’re getting a permanent addition to you body, you want to make sure it means something, right?

Michael Ray has several tattoos, but each one has a personal connection to his life, “All my tattoos are either family based, religious based, or music based.”

He shares the story of one of his tattoos that honors his late grandmother, “So, my grandma, Penny, she passed away a couple of years ago, and I have a tattoo memory of my grandfather, and I wanted a tattoo for her. Her nickname was Penny, and I got a penny with my Grandmother’s birth year, 1942, on the date, on the inside of my arm.”

If he could change one thing about the tattoo…it would just be WHEN he got it. Turns out Michael got it on a show day, and it being on his arm, well, Michael admits “I started playing guitar that night…for the show, and it hurt like hell.”

But even with that night of pain Michael proudly says “it’s probably my favorite tattoo.”
