Back in the days, she was an active student who loved singing, writing songs and even hosting events in school. Though the names of her schools have not been disclosed, Morgane is a graduate with two degrees, one in management and the other in human science.
Morgane Stapleton apparently switched career after college. The singer and songwriter whose first love is music is believed to have debuted as an entertainer in the year 1992. Despite her talents, Morgane did not like being in the spotlight and shied away from public attention. So she chose to pursue her passion by mostly working behind the scenes.

Her talents were hard to go unnoticed and her first major breakthrough came when she landed a spot as a backup singer for Lee Ann Womack’s road band.
Thereafter, the budding songwriter signed a deal with Sea Gayle Music in Nashville in 2003. Later that year, she recorded lots of unreleased songs under Arista Nashville Records. Morgane had a major breakthrough in 2005 when she wrote and also provided back up vocals for the famous country singer, Carrie Underwood‘s song Don’t Forget To Remember Me. The song was not just a commercial success but also opened up bigger opportunities for Morgane. As a prolific songwriter, she has worked with several other industry top shots some of which include LeAnn Rimes, Kellie Pickler, Claire Lynch, Alan Jackson, Trisha Yearwood, and of course, her husband Chris Stapleton.
