When are we getting a solo album from Morgane Stapleton?

I saw a tweet recently from Hailey Whitters asking the exact same thing, and it got me thinking.

Morgane had a well established singer/songwriter career of her own before she married now-husband Chris Stapleton. She has sung background vocals on tons of songs, written plenty others, and nowadays, she’s featured on nearly all of Chris’ music.

She was an instrumental part of Chris’ iconic 2015 Grammy-winning album Traveller that made him a household name, and top of that, she’s written for some of the biggest names in business, including Chris, Alan Jackson, Reba, and Trisha Yearwood. She was even a co-writer on Carrie Underwood’s huge 2005 single “Don’t Forget To Remember Me.”

There was only one way to hear her older music, though. A small collection of songs live on through her old MySpace profile. Yeah, that’s how old they are. It’s listed under her maiden name “Morgane Hayes,” and under the tab titled “countrykickass.” Need I say more?

Unfortunately, the songs don’t seem to be available publicly anymore, so now would probably be the perfect opportunity to put them all out on an official record. She has the voice of an absolute angel, and I for one, think it’s about time she graces us an entire solo album.

Until that happens, we’ll continue to enjoy her performances with Chris like this knockout of “When The Stars Come Out”:

And of course “Starting Over” from the 2020 CMA’s:

And finally, one where she takes lead vocals… “Stop Cheating On Me.”
