Two years after his last album release, Chris Stapleton is finally giving his fans something to look forward to.
Later this year, Stapleton is releasing his follow-up to the hit album “Traveler”. The new album will include the song he performed in 2016 during Dolly Parton’s Smoky Mountains Rise telethon, “Broken Halos.” The new album has yet to be named, but will be available in May, 2017.
While not much is known about it, we do hope it’s as successful as Stapleton’s first album, which earned him a Grammy, CMA, and a Top 10 hit. This year, he has been nominated for an ACM Award for “Male Vocalist of the Year” as well as “Song of the Year” for “Tennessee Whiskey.”
If you love Stapleton as much as everyone else, you can hear many of the new songs live when he heads out on tour. The tour will kick off in Georgia during May, 2017, and will wrap up in New Hampshire in August. The tour will also include a great lineup of artists, like Brothers Osborne, Margo Price, Lucie Silvas, Brent Cobb and Anderson East. These artists will be performing on select nights.
While there are still several months before we can see Stapleton on tour, tickets are already on sale. You can check out the full dates on Stapleton’s website. As popular as this tour is likely to be, you will want to grab your tickets early if you want to catch this fantastic artist live.
Along with heading up his own tour, Stapleton is planning to open for Tom Petty when he stops in Chicago as part of his 40th-anniversary tour. This performance will take place at Wrigley Field on June 29th.
