Mercury Records Nashville artist Chris Stapleton, whose debut solo project Traveller will release May 5, will soon bring those songs from the studio to the stage, on his upcoming round of spring tour dates.
The dates include album release shows at Nashville’s Cannery Ballroom (May 8), and New York’s Mercury Lounge (May 5).
Also on the touring lineup are gigs at New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival (May 2), New York’s Farmborough Festival (June 26) and Delaware’s Big Barrel Country Music Festival (June 27).
Stapleton has notched a reputation as a go-to writer for artists in Music City. Recently, his fifth career No. 1, “Drink A Beer,” was nominated for “Song of the Year” at the 2015 ACM Awards. The song was co-written with Jim Beavers and recorded by Luke Bryan.
Stapleton brings his distinctive, bluesy voice and songwriting style to Traveller, which was produced by Dave Cobb and recorded by Vance Powell at Nashville’s historic RCA Studio A (with additional production from The Castle and Blackbird Studio). The project offers 12 originals, including “Sometimes I Cry.” Stapleton recently recorded a new rendition of the song live-to-tape before an industry audience during an album reveal party at RCA Studio A. The project also includes Stapleton’s recordings of Don Sampson‘s “Was It 26” and the Dean Dillon/Linda Hargrove composition “Tennessee Whiskey.”
