ALL-AMERICAN ROAD SHOW
with special guest Elle King
Friday, Sept. 9 at 7:30 p.m. – Canadian Tire Centre
All tickets from the previously postponed show will be honoured
Chris Stapleton will return to Canada this fall with rescheduled shows at Montreal’s Centre Bell on Thursday, Sept. 8, Ottawa’s Canadian Tire Centre on Friday, Sept. 9 and London, Ont.’s Budweiser Gardens on Saturday, Sept. 10, after the original dates were recently postponed. All tickets purchased for the initial shows will be honoured for the new dates, which will feature Elle King as special guest.
The upcoming performances follow last month’s A Concert for Kentucky stadium show, which raised over $1 million dollars for the Outlaw State of Kind Hometown Fund. The sold-out event was the first concert ever held at the University of Kentucky’s Kroger Field and featured performances by Stapleton along with Willie Nelson and Family, Sheryl Crow and Madeline Edwards. An arm of Chris and Morgane Stapleton’s Outlaw State of Kind charitable fund, the Hometown Fund is administered by the Blue Grass Community Foundation and supports a variety of causes close to the couple’s heart in Chris’ home state of Kentucky. Initial Hometown Fund grants include $250,000 to The Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation as well as additional pledges to the American Red Cross, UK Healthcare Kentucky Children’s Hospital, the Community Foundation of Western Kentucky’s Disaster Relief Fund, and Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library. Additional Hometown Fund grants will continue to be made throughout the year.
The tour celebrates Stapleton’s acclaimed album, Starting Over, which recently won three awards at the 67th Annual Grammys: Best Country Album (Starting Over), Best Country Solo Performance (You Should Probably Leave) and Best Country Song (Cold). Stapleton also performed Cold – a song written with his longtime bandmates J.T. Cure and Derek Mixon along with Dave Cobb – during the live awards broadcast, of which Rolling Stone praises, “the country singer growled his way through the Best Country Song winner and plucked out an electrifying guitar solo.” Watch/share here.
Kentucky-born Stapleton is an eight-time Grammy, 14-time CMA and 10-time ACM Award-winner and one of the country’s most respected and beloved musicians. Following 2015’s quintuple platinum breakthrough solo debut album Traveller, Stapleton released two No. 1 albums in 2017. Both From A Room: Volume 1 (certified platinum) and From A Room: Volume 2 (certified gold) take their name from legendary RCA Studio A, where they were recorded with Cobb. Released to overwhelming critical acclaim, The Tennessean praises, “Both are rich with the textures of Stapleton’s vocals that make him one of country music’s most beloved artists, classic country sounds and thoughtful articulate lyrics about love, life and pain.” He was also recently announced as the first-ever “Artist-Songwriter of the Decade” recipient by the Academy of Country Music.
