Chris Stapleton Releases Debut Solo Album

chris stapleton

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.

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.”

In celebration of the release, Stapleton will join Little Big Town on their Pain Killer Tour in March followed by a series of The Outsiders World Tour shows with Eric Church in May.

Carrie Underwood’s “Something in the Water” Tops the Charts for a 7th Week!

Superstar Carrie Underwood has now surpassed a personal best that she set with her debut single, “Jesus, Take the Wheel,” as her GRAMMY®-nominated smash “Something in the Water” achieves a seventh cumulative week at #1 on Billboard’s airplay/sales/streaming-based Hot Country Songs chart.

The Gold-certified “Something in the Water” recently topped Rolling Stone’s year-end social media readers’ poll of the “10 Best Country Songs of 2014,” and it continues to be red-hot on the radio airwaves, currently approaching the summit of both the Billboard and Country Aircheck country airplay charts.

It was actually nine years ago this week that Underwood was enjoying her first Hot Country Songs success in the midst of her six-week run at #1 with “Jesus, Take the Wheel.”

“Something in the Water” also continues its record-setting ways on Billboard’s Hot Christian Songs chart with a 16th week at #1, the longest such tenure for a female artist, according to Billboard.

The song’s music video is now in its fifth consecutive week at #1 on GAC’s fan-voted Top 20 Country Countdown.

“Something in the Water” is from Underwood’s chart-topping new album, Greatest Hits: Decade #1, which also includes the new song “Little Toy Guns” and four songs in never-before-released versions, as well as all 18 of Underwood’s #1 hits.

The album is available for sale online here.
