Chris Stapleton will return to Canada with his extensive All-American Road Show tour next spring which features a stop at Ottawa’s Canadian Tire Centre on Friday, Sept. 9.
The new tour dates add to a monumental past few weeks for Stapleton, who will perform during tonight’s 2021 CCMA Awards (streaming at 8 p.m. EST via the Global TV App and Prime Video). Additionally, Stapleton is nominated in three categories at the 64th Annual Grammy Awards: Best Country Album (Starting Over), Best Country Song (Cold) and Best Country Solo Performance (You Should Probably Leave) and led winners at the 55th Annual CMA Awards with six awards – Male Vocalist of the Year, Album of the Year (Starting Over, as artist and producer), Song of the Year (Starting Over) and Single of the Year (Starting Over, as artist and producer). He also took home Album of the Year at the 56th Academy of Country Music Awards earlier this year.
Released last fall on Mercury Records Nashville (stream/purchase here), Starting Over is an album of startling prescience, featuring fourteen tracks that examine life’s simplest joys and most serious struggles. Once again produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb, the record debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Country Albums chart and landed on several “Best of 2020” lists including NPR Music, Rolling Stone, Billboard, Esquire, Vulture, The Tennessean and The New York Times, who declares, “Chris Stapleton’s roar isn’t designed to scare you off. It’s regal, an announcement of an alpha figure asserting his primacy…on this, his fourth album, the thrill is back.”
The Kentucky-born Stapleton is a five-time Grammy, 16-time CMA and nine-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. 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.
