Kentucky-born musician Chris Stapleton is one of Nashville’s most respected and beloved musicians. Tonight, he makes his Austin City Limits debut performing songs from throughout his career.

Since releasing his now double Platinum debut solo album Traveller in 2015, Stapleton has received multiple Grammy, CMA and ACM Awards and remains one of the most critically praised musicians of his time. “My earliest memories of music are listening to it in the car with my dad,” Stapleton said. “It was outlaw country and Ray Charles and old R&B, Otis Redding, things like that. I don’t know if those are things that necessarily go together, but those things were formative for me.”

His sophomore follow up, From A Room: Volume 1, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart upon its release and, with its Gold certification, remains the strongest-selling country album of 2017. Rolling Stone calls the album “strikingly focused, sonically and thematically” while The New York Times praises, “Like Traveller, From A Room is earthen, rich with tradition, has a tactile intensity and is carefully measured.”

A second album, From A Room: Volume 2, will be released later this year (2017). In celebration of the music, “Chris Stapleton’s All-American Road Show” tour is currently underway and will span throughout 2017. Of a recent performance, the Seattle Times declared, “Stapleton dazzled the sold- out crowd with a barrage of songs that defy easy categorization while receiving the kind of deafening cheers reserved for superstars.”
