It's fun to hear artists talk about the first time they heard one of their songs on the radio. Not that we're bragging, but it's a big deal. Okay, we're bragging. But there's another place that's cool to hear your song for the first time.
I'm talking about the Waffle House jukebox. They had the first-ever Tunie Awards last week, and they named CHRIS STAPLETON as "Country Artist of the Year."
He even showed up to accept the award, or maybe he just happened to be there eating waffles. But he did say a few words. Quote, "I've had a lot of dreams come true, but one dream that I wanted is to have a song on the Waffle House jukebox.
"Not only did I get a song on the Waffle House jukebox, I got this fantastic award. So thank you so much, Waffle House. We love you . . . we're going to keep on eating you . . . and I just can't thank you enough." (Here's the link. Skip to 5:52.)
Chris had the most country songs played. As far as most overall songs played, there's a Top 10 and "Tennessee Whiskey"was #6. Sam Hunt and Keith Urban also made the list. (You can check out the Top 10, here.)
