Chris Stapleton Makes Major Career Announcement

Jeff Grossman/

Ever since his furious rise to the top of country music, this country crooner hasn’t slowed down one bit!

The man credited with “bringing country back” to its roots has been on an insane, non-stop ride following his skyrocket ride to fame after he stole the show at 2015’s CMA Awards and released one of the most-praised country albums to hit the shelves in recent years.

Now, country powerhouse performer Chris Stapleton is continuing the momentum and giving fans even more of what they’ve been begging for.

Announced earlier today, February 16th, Stapleton will be heading out on an iconic headlining tour, making stops all across the nation and bringing his incredible music to folks everywhere….but that’s not the only thing he had in store!

Also announced today, the fan-favorite country superstar revealed that he is releasing a brand new album, too! The currently untitled album will be his highly-anticipated follow up to the top-charting album, Traveller, and will go on sale May 5th 2017 – two years exactly since his debut was released.

Aptly titled the All-American Road Show, Stapleton’s tour will kick off on March 9th, 2017 and will include dates spanning a majority of the year, ending on August 5th in Gilford, New Hampshire. Throughout many of the dates, opening acts will include the likes of Brothers Osborne, Margo Price, Anderson East, Lucie Silvas, and Brent Cobb – but all dates will not feature all performers.

In addition to having a great lineup of opening acts, for several dates during his tour Stapleton himself will be playing as the opening act for three shows with Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers!

Tickets for the tour will go on sale starting February 21st, 2017 to fan club members and general public sales will start on February 24th. The All-American Road Show is a combination of dates that had been previously announced as performances as well as new dates. Some previously announced stops have already sold out, however the newly-added tour shows will go on sale according to the information above.
