Nashville, Tenn. Chris Stapleton's highly anticipated solo debut album, Traveller, will be released May 5 on Mercury Records Nashville. As a special preview, a behind-the-scenes album trailer can now be viewed here. Already a world-renowned songwriter, Stapleton has enjoyed five #1 hits including the five-week No. 1 "Never Wanted Nothing More" recorded by Kenny Chesney, George Strait's "Love's Gonna Make it Alright" and Luke Bryan's "Drink A Beer", which Stapleton recently performed with Lady Antebellum at the recent CMT Artists of the Year show (watch the performance here). Recorded at Nashville's historic RCA Studio A (with additional production at The Castle and Blackbird Studio), Traveller was produced by Dave Cobb (Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell) and recorded by Vance Powell (Jack White). In addition to renditions of Dean Dillon and Linda Hargrove s Tennessee Whiskey and Don Sampson's Was It 26, the album features twelve original songs, including fan-favorite "Sometimes I Cry". Last night, during a special album reveal party, Stapleton returned to RCA Studio A to record a new version of "Sometimes I Cry" live-to-tape in front of an audience allowing a unique, once-in-a-lifetime glimpse inside the making of the album. The track is currently being mastered and will be added to the final track-listing very shortly. Of his inspiration behind the record, Stapleton comments, "This record was made standing on the shoulders of friends, family, and heroes. I hope people enjoy listening to it as much as I've enjoyed making it." Over the course of his acclaimed career, Stapleton has penned over 170 album cuts, including songs recorded by Adele, Tim McGraw, Brad Paisley and Dierks Bentley, and has such notable co-writers as Vince Gill, Peter Frampton and Sheryl Crow among others. Additionally, Stapleton has shared the stage with such respected artists as Gill, Alison Krauss, Marty Stuart, Emmylou Harris and more. As lead vocalist for critically acclaimed bluegrass band The SteelDrivers, Stapleton earned three Grammy nominations including Best Bluegrass Album, as well as an International Bluegrass Music Association Award for Emerging Artist of the Year. He's also won eight ASCAP Awards and has contributed to the soundtracks of several feature films including Cars 2 and Valentine's Day.

Chris Stapleton is the REAL DEAL !

Without a doubt this is the best CD I have purchased in 10 years or more. Chris Stapleton is a singer/songwriter/musician with a Big dose of Old School.

The CD contains great songs, including Tennessee Whiskey. I love the sound of Stapleton's voice. In addition, the price is great--even cheaper than Amazon. I used the free store pick-up option.
