Stapleton leads All-American Road Show

Wednesday, January 29, 2020 – Chris Stapleton's "All-American Road Show" will return this summer and fall including stops at Washington State's Gorge Amphitheatre, Nashville's Bridgestone Arena and New York's Madison Square Garden. Stapleton will make his headline debut at Chicago's famed Wrigley Field on Aug. 29 with special guests The Highwomen, Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit and The Dirty Knobs with Mike Campbell of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.

Additional guests along the tour include Dwight Yoakam, Elle King, Hank Williams Jr., Kendell Marvel, Margo Price, Nikki Lane, Sheryl Crow, The Marcus King Band and Yola.

Stapleton Fan Club pre-sales will begin next Tuesday, Feb. 4 at 10 a.m. local time. Public tickets sales start next Friday, Feb. 7 at 10 a.m. local time.

Stapleton will play the first event at Texas Rangers' Globe Life Field on March 14 as well as "A Concert for Kentucky," a special performance benefitting his newly created Outlaw State of Kind Hometown Fund to be held at University of Kentucky's Kroger Field on April 25. That will be first concert ever at the venue with special guests Willie Nelson & Family, Sheryl Crow and Yola. All net proceeds will go toward Chris and Morgane Stapleton's Outlaw State of Kind Hometown Fund. The fund will specifically support local and national organizations directly impacting Kentucky, with initial grant distributions focusing on music and arts education.

On June 26, Stapleton will be the subject of a new exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. The exhibition follows a series of landmark years for Stapleton, following the release of his breakthrough debut album, "Traveller, " and his follow-ups from 2017: "From A Room: Volume 1" and "From A Room: Volume 2."

CD reviews for Chris Stapleton

From A Room: Volume 2 CD review - From A Room: Volume 2
There is no bigger artist in country music today, perhaps even in American music, than Chris Stapleton. His appeal reaches beyond just the commercial country fans for his gritty bluesy approach. 2015's "Traveller" set a high bar, which was met by this year's release of "From A Room: Volume 1," which won Album of the Year in the 51st CMA Awards. Stapleton also garnered the Male Vocalist of the Year for his second time. Now seven months after that release, "From »»»
Traveller CD review - Traveller
Chris Stapleton is one of those artists you've heard without ever realizing it. That's because of his acclaim as a songwriter with such hits as Luke Bryan's "Drink a Beer," Josh Turner's "Your Man," Darius Rucker's "Come Back Song" and Kenny Chesney's "Never Wanted Nothing More." He also had a successful stint as lead singer of the driving bluegrass band The SteelDrivers (Adele recorded one of their songs, which he co-wrote as »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: The Lil Smokies provide the perfect antidote – On a night when the world to be falling further apart thanks to coronavirus (this would be the night the NBA postponed the season), there stood The Lil Smokies to at least in some small measure save the day. The quintet is part of a generation of musicians with bluegrass as the basis, but not totally the sum of the music either.... »»»
Concert Review: White makes the case for himself, no matter how dark the music – John Paul White opined with a glint in his eyes that his songs were not of the uplifting variety. In fact, they were downright dark. How else to explain "The Long Way" with the line "long way home back to you." Or "James," a song inspired by his grandfather who suffered from dementia. But lest you think that the Alabama... »»»
