So About This Chris Stapleton News…

By God almighty, thank you Jesus for this news. I know other outlets have covered this news already, but at the same time, nobody’s reading this anyway, so I might as well cover it, right? In all honesty I was swamped with real life events to post this, otherwise I’d have shared it. However, it’s here now, so get ready for May 5th since that’s the day we’re getting a new Chris Stapleton album. Nobody knows anything about it yet, but it is interesting to note that it’s coming out on the same day that Traveller did 2 years ago. I didn’t love Traveller, but I liked it a lot, and I’m excited to hear this.

Here’s some new tour dates for the guy. He’s bringing along acts such as Anderson East, Margo Price, Lindi Ortega, Brothers Osborne, Brent Cobb, Lucie Silvas, and Maren Morris, so if you get a chance to see him, DO IT! I saw him last year and he was absolutely phenomenal. He’s just one of those artists that sounds better live.
