Music Spotlight: Chris Stapleton

Chris Stapleton, widely known for his ability as an incredible songwriter, will be making his debut as a solo artist when his album Traveller releases on May 5th of this year.  Stapleton's voice is special.  One listen to Traveller and you will understand the kind of talent he possesses.  Country Weekly was on to Stapleton's talent as early as July of 2013, stating in an article authored by Lisa Konicki: 

"Every once in a while you run into a singer here in Nashville who just blows you away, an artist who can create sound in an effortless manner and transport your soul out of this world. This morning that someone proved to be Chris Stapleton."

Then, in February 2015, NPR's Ann Powers wrote a piece on Stapleton's new song Traveller.  In that piece, Powers really captured the essence of why those who have had the opportunity to hear Stapleton sing are blown away by his talent: 

"Stapleton's singing is above all companionable, capturing the way pathos and joy and weariness can all flow through any given few hours. He's the kind of singer you turn to when you have five minutes alone in the midst of a bunch of craziness — a friend who, as you listen to him, seems to be listening to you."

Traveller & When The Stars Come Out provide a preview of what to expect from Chris Stapleton's debut album.
