Chris Stapleton to Open For Southern Rock Royalty

Universal Music Group artist, Chris Stapleton, will open two shows for Southern rockers The Allman Brothers Band and Lynyrd Skynyrd this weekend in Charlotte (8/3), and Raleigh, NC (8/4). He will join Lynyrd Skynyrd again on August 30 at Milwaukee, WI’s Riverside Theatre.

At these dates, Stapleton will play acoustic sets for crowds in 20,000 capacity venues.

“I’ve looked up to these guys for a long time…it’s a huge honor,” said Stapleton. “I’ve got a pretty tall task ahead of me in warming up crowds this big with just my acoustic guitar, but I’m looking forward to the challenge.”

As a songwriter, Stapleton has penned four No. 1 songs and had over 150 album cuts from artists including Adele, Tim McGraw, Brad Paisley, Kenny Chesney, George Strait, and Dierks Bentley.
