Last night Chris Stapleton brought down the house at the CMT Music Awards, singing his song "Parachute." But last year, just weeks before he became a household name, and mere months before he became inundated with GRAMMY awards Stapleton, stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert where he shared songwriting tips.

Take notes.

ORIGINALLY POSTED SEPTEMBER 21, 2015:

There is no debating it, Chris Stapleton can write an amazing song -- and then sing the hell out of it, but who knew he was so funny? He showed off his comedy chops earlier this week with this skit where he shares his "Songwriting Tips".

The CMA nominated singer/songwriter also performed “Nobody To Blame” from his debut solo album, "Traveller." The album is vying for the coveted title of CMA Album of the Year for the upcoming 49th Annual CMA Awards.
