Singing, songwriting and delivering babies!
"Make no mistake, [Morgane's hands are] always all over everything," he told Rare Country in 2017. "She's my Jiminy Cricket in a lot of ways. She's the voice of reason, because I'm not always reasonable." He added, "She's been known to make me change keys on something. She'll be like, 'Sing higher.' I'm like, 'Alright.' I get lazy on keys sometimes. I'll key it lower, that way I can sing it lower live. She won't let me get lazy on stuff like that. She knows when I'm doing it, and nobody else does."
Morgane is a Music City fixture in her own right, although she's happy to linger just outside of her bearded hubby's limelight. Keep reading to find out more about Morgane Stapleton, the amazing woman behind country superstar Chris Stapleton—and how and why she's a star in her own right, too.

Does Morgane Stapleton tour with Chris?
Morgane and the entire Stapleton clan often tour with Chris. He revealed to American Country Countdown in 2018 (via The Country Daily), "You know, our kids go on the road, my in-laws go on the road, my mom goes on the road when she feels like coming, and so we carry a good bit of actual family. As an extension of that, I consider Derek [Mixon on drums] and J.T. [Cure on bass] to be family members, you know, the guys in the band, and all the guys in the crew. I want everybody to feel like they are family. We try to approach things that way. That’s always been the goal with me anytime."

Stapleton said that the COVID-19 pandemic forced him to take time off of the road and stay home—and while the pandemic is obviously tragic, it may have been a bit of a blessing for him as well.
"The silver lining and the mixed blessing during the pandemic for me is I’ve gotten to spend more time being a dad and being with my children than I've ever gotten to do certainly as a touring musician. I have three children under the age of three and I have two older ones that are 12 and 10," he told UMG Nashville in April 2021. "When I go in to get the boys in the morning, and I open the door, they say 'Daddy' before I even open the door, and I've never really had that before. So, that's kind of a neat thing for me to get to have that, so I'm thankful for that and I'm grateful for that. As much as I look forward to getting back out on the road, I'll miss a little bit of that."
