Artist Info

Chris Stapleton’s journey into the world of music began early, with influences ranging from the classic sounds of Hank Williams and Merle Haggard to the rock ‘n’ roll swagger of Led Zeppelin and The Allman Brothers Band. This eclectic mix of musical inspirations would later define his distinctive style—a fusion of traditional country, blues, and southern rock.

After honing his craft in local bands and working as a songwriter in Nashville, Stapleton caught his big break when he co-wrote the song “Never Wanted Nothing More” for Kenny Chesney, which topped the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart in 2007. This success propelled Stapleton into the spotlight as one of Nashville’s most sought-after songwriters.

In 2015, Stapleton’s solo career soared to new heights with the release of his debut album, “Traveller.” The album’s raw authenticity and soul-stirring lyrics captivated audiences and critics alike, earning Stapleton widespread acclaim and multiple awards, including three Grammy Awards for Best Country Album, Best Country Song, and Best Country Solo Performance.

Stapleton’s meteoric rise continued with subsequent albums, including “From A Room: Volume 1” (2017) and “From A Room: Volume 2” (2017), both of which topped the Billboard Country Albums chart and further solidified his reputation as a powerhouse in the country music scene.

Beyond his solo career, Stapleton’s collaborations with other artists have further showcased his versatility and musical prowess. His duet with Justin Timberlake at the 2015 CMA Awards electrified audiences and underscored Stapleton’s crossover appeal.
