Press Release

Two of music’s most beloved and acclaimed artists, Chris Stapleton and Dua Lipa, have collaborated to release “Think I’m In Love With You (Live from the 59th ACM Awards).”

Recorded live at this year’s ACM Awards in Frisco, Texas, the surprise duet features Stapleton and Dua Lipa alongside Stapleton’s band, The Honchos, as well as a 13-piece string section.

He said it was actually her idea to team up together on the awards show.

“She reached out to the ACMs and suggested that we do something, and then we got on the phone with her and she was just a wonderful person to talk to and collaborate with, and we knew that was going to work pretty much immediately from one phone call,” Stapleton said. “It was very exciting and a very fun way to get to collaborate with somebody, and she’s a wonderful collaborator and a wonderful creative spirit and talent, and feel very lucky.”



More on Chris Stapleton

Kentucky-born Stapleton is a 10-times-Grammy, 16-times-CMA and 19-times-ACM Award-winner, and one of the country’s most respected and beloved musicians. In the midst of yet another triumphant year, Stapleton recently won four awards at 59th ACM Awards, as well as two more trophies at the 66th annual Grammy Awards.

These accomplishments celebrate Stapleton’s new album, “Higher,” which was released this past fall to overwhelming critical acclaim. Produced by Dave Cobb, Morgane Stapleton and Chris Stapleton and recorded at Nashville’s historic RCA Studio A, the record landed on several “Best of” lists including Billboard, Esquire, Los Angeles Times, Vulture and Rolling Stone, who praises, “dazzling … the best evidence yet for the way one man’s voice has become synonymous with the very idea of a musical genre.” Additionally, The New Yorker declares, “Stapleton is the rare country star with both traditional bona fides and broad commercial appeal. He has an outlaw soul and a pop star’s capacity for inescapable hooks,” while GQ proclaims, “In an age rife with division, he’s maybe the only thing Americans all agree on.”

Known for his electric live performances, Stapleton recently returned to NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” as musical guest for the third time and will continue his extensive “All-American Road Show” through this fall. In addition to teaming up with Dua Lipa, Stapleton has new collaborations with Slash (“Oh Well”) and George Strait (“Honky Tonk Hall of Fame”), in addition to recording a version of “I Should Have Known It” for new Tom Petty tribute album.

Stapleton and his wife, Morgane, are founders of the Outlaw State of Kind charitable fund, which supports a variety of causes that are close to their heart. Stapleton also recently unveiled his new Traveller Whiskey, created in partnership with Buffalo Trace Distillery’s Master Distiller Harlen Wheatley.

More on Dua Lipa

Three-times-Grammy and seven-times-BRIT Award-winning global pop powerhouse Dua Lipa continues to be one of pop music’s leading forces with the release of her third album, “Radical Optimism.” Upon release, the album went straight to No. 1 in 12 countries, including the U.K., where it became the biggest album debut of 2024 and garnered the largest female No. 1 volume since 2021. In the U.S., the album debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Album Sales chart and No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart, marking Dua’s biggest sales week yet. The New York Times named it a Critic’s Pick and hailed it as “an album of nonstop ear candy”; along with Variety, who declared it “a joyous blast of pop savvy”; The New Yorker, who praised, “the instrumentation is a gleaming and impenetrable expanse, and the main attraction is Lipa”; and Vogue, who raved it’s “a summery, self-assured slice of pop brilliance … (and) catchy as hell.”

Dua’s certified Platinum sophomore album, “Future Nostalgia,” solidified her position as both a critical success and top radio performer. The Grammy Award-winning album was the longest running top 10 album by a female artist on the Billboard 200 in 2021 and spawned multiple worldwide hit singles, with “Levitating” earning certified Diamond status and the title of Billboard’s No. 1 Hot 100 Song of 2021.

Dua has found superstar status on stage and off, thanks to her many passions outside of music. 2022 saw Dua launch Service95, a global style, culture and society editorial platform that now comprises a weekly newsletter, the Service95 book club and the “Dua Lipa: At Your Service” podcast, which has been lauded by The Sunday Times and The Guardian, and was named one of the Best Podcasts of 2022 by Spotify. Having graced every major fashion magazine worldwide from Vogue and Elle to W and Dazed, Dua added “designer” to her resume in 2023 when she co-designed Versace’s “La Vacanza” collection alongside Donatella Versace herself, which Vogue deemed “the hottest collaboration of the summer.”

Dua’s eponymous 2017 debut album is certified Platinum, spawned six Platinum tracks, and made her the first female artist in BRIT Awards history to pick up five nominations in a single year. Dua has a total of 10 Grammy nominations, with three wins for Best Pop Vocal Album, Best New Artist and Best Dance Recording. Additionally, she earned nominations at the Golden Globes and Critics Choice Awards for her hit song “Dance The Night” from the box office sensation “Barbie.” Across platforms globally, she has amassed over 42 billion streams and holds the record for being the first female artist to have two albums with over 10 billion streams each on Spotify.
