7 Things You Didn’t Know About Chris And Morgane Stapleton’s Relationship
5. Their First Date
Not surprisingly, their first date was at a songwriting session! Eventually he asked me to write a song with him, and that ended up being our first date. We didn’t get much writing done that night,” she said. It was 6 p.m. on a Friday night and what turned out to be a work session became a first date. Four years later they were married.
4. You Are My Sunshine
Chris and Morgane tied the knot in 2007. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Chris revealed that before they got married, he had the words, “You Are My Sunshine,” etched into his wedding ring. For the compilation album Southern Family, the musical couple recorded their own version of the song. The first time they sang the song together was 10 years ago when they bought their first house. “We had just bought our first house. We weren’t married yet,” said Chris. Morgane then chimed in, “We had put down a slate floor, and it was empty. We didn’t have furniture, but for whatever reason you had a guitar and started playing something.” That something turned out to be the iconic song “You Are My Sunshine.”
