Sunday is a day Chris Stapleton will always remember: His wife gave birth to twin boys, he celebrated his 40th birthday and he won album of the year at the Academy of Country Music Awards.

Stapleton didn't attend the show in Las Vegas, but host Reba McEntire announced the birth of the boys when his album, "From a Room: Volume 1," was named album of the year.
