Besides winning for male vocalist, new artist and album of the year, here are some other facts via Wikipedia.

1. He's married to a songwriter (Morgane Stapleton) and they have two kids

2. He's written or co-written a boatload of hits for others, including "Whisky and You" by Tim McGraw, "Come Back Song" by Darius Rucker, and "Drink A Beer" by Luke Bryan

3.  He went to college to become an engineer, but changed his mind

4. He's actually won seven awards OTHER than CMAs. They were from ASCAP for his songwriting

5. He actually has 150 songs on other peoples' albums. Very talented. Here's the song that he kept for himself
