LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Kentucky native and country music superstar Chris Stapleton will continue his extensive, sold-out “All-American Road Show” through 2019 with newly confirmed performances this summer and fall including a Nov. 2 return to the commonwealth to perform at Louisville’s KFC Yum! Center. The show marks the first for Stapleton in his home state since a sold-out performance at Rupp Arena in Lexington in October 2018. Special guest openers for the tour include Margo Price, Brent Cobb, Brothers Osborne, The Marcus King Band and Kendell Marvel.
The newly confirmed shows follow yet another monumental year for Stapleton, who is nominated in three categories at the 61st GRAMMY Awards including Best Country Album (“From A Room: Volume 2”) and Best Country Solo Performance (“Millionaire”) as well as Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for his performance on Justin Timberlake’s “Say Something.” Additionally, last year, Stapleton won Male Vocalist of the Year (for the fourth-straight year), Single of the Year (“Broken Halos”) and Song of the Year (“Broken Halos”) at The 52 Annual CMA Awards, Male Vocalist of the Year and Album of the Year (“From A Room: Volume 1” as both artist and producer) at the 53rd Academy of Country Music Awards, Top Country Artist, Top Country Male Artist and Top Country Album (“From A Room: Volume 1”) at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards and Best Country Album (“From A Room: Volume 1”), Best Country Song (“Broken Halos”) and Best Country Solo Performance (“Either Way”) at the 60th GRAMMY Awards.
Released in December 2017 on Mercury Records Nashville, “From A Room: Volume 2” takes its name from Nashville’s historic RCA Studio A (the capital “A” in “From A Room”) where it was recorded with Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb. Along with Stapleton on vocals and guitar and Cobb on acoustic guitar, the album features Morgane Stapleton on harmony vocals as well as longtime band-members J.T. Cure on bass and Derek Mixon on drums.
