Kentucky-bred Chris Stapleton is a triple threat: a powerfully gifted singer, prolific songwriter and skilled guitar player.

Chris Stapleton: I don't think it does get any more country than that.

When people don't want to label me something other than a country singer-- you know, I don't probably sing like a traditional country singer you know, but, ultimately, I'm me.

On stage, he can silence an arena with a slow-burning ballad or manipulate his guitar to sound like trouble walking through the door.

Chris Stapleton: This guitar I got not that long ago.

Chris Stapleton: They're based on airplay in the Waffle House jukebox so as far I know we've won the most.

Chris Stapleton: Yeah, well, it's called a Tunie.

Sharyn Alfonsi: Do you have a favorite guitar.

If I had to have one guitar, and you know it was an electric guitar, this would be the one I'd take with me and the rest of them do other things and I love them very dearly but this one this one is the one that I would take.

Chris Stapleton: Any guitar player, like, real, you know, technically skilled trained guitar player will tell you that I'm not a great guitar player. .

Sharyn Alfonsi: It's hard to think about you, rollin' around listening to Snoop Dogg.

Chris Stapleton: Yeah, it was-- you know, it was some of the realist it was so real that it translated even to some kid in eastern Kentucky who had no notion of the things that he was talking about, you know?

Chris Stapleton: Well, I think it was?

Sharyn Alfonsi: You were gonna be an engineer.

Chris Stapleton: I was at one point, yeah?

Sharyn Alfonsi: What did-- what'd you think you were gonna do.

Sharyn Alfonsi: So pretty much the same thing you're doing now.

Chris Stapleton: Yeah, pretty much the same thing doing now.you know, I was like, well, my dad's an engineer?

Sharyn Alfonsi: Did you know you wanted to be a songwriter.

Chris Stapleton: I didn't even know it was a thing?

Sharyn Alfonsi: What do you mean.

Chris Stapleton: Yeah.

Sharyn Alfonsi: How many songs do you think you've written.

Chris Stapleton: I don't know.

Sharyn Alfonsi: A thousand.

Sharyn Alfonsi: What's a win for-- writing a song?  When do you know, okay, this is-- I did this well.

Chris Stapleton: I don't think I ever know that.

I don't think anybody knows that.

Like, you can't--  possibly know how everybody's gonna feel about a song that you write?

Sharyn Alfonsi: You didn't jump on it right off the bat because of what.

Chris Stapleton: I don't know--?

Sharyn Alfonsi: Like, shave your beard and get a spray tan.

Chris Stapleton: Yeah, maybe.

Sharyn Alfonsi: And did you know in your heart, like, I know what this should sound like, I know what this should be.

And-- and I made, like, I don't know, $40 bucks in an hour

Chris Stapleton: The hat and, you know, all blacked out

So it also gives people just enough pause sometimes to go, "I-- I don't know if I should walk up to him right now."

He may look like a Hells Angel, but his songs reveal Chris Stapleton's true character
