Taking his "All-American Show" tour across the U.S., Chris Stapleton has announced new dates (Feb. 16) that will take him from coast to coast. Stapleton, who gained fame after a performance with Justin Timberlake at the 2015 CMA Awards, will be coming to the Detroit, Michigan area on Aug. 19 to perform at Clarkston's DTE Energy Music Theatre. Stapleton will be joined by special guests Margo Price and Brent Cobb and tickets will go on sale March 3 for the event.
Chris Stapleton will perform songs from his unexpected successful solo album, Traveller, which went from being virtually unknown to skyrocket to No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart. It went from selling a mere 2,000 copies before the performance with Timberlake and secured its No. 1 position with 177,000 units, 153,000 of those being in pure sales. Stapleton took home the Grammy Award for Best Country Solo Performance for "Traveller" in February 2016 and was up against heavyweights in the genre including Keith Urban and Carrie Underwood. Since then, he's gone on to become one of the most sought after artists. He also took home the award for Best Country Album.
Along with performing material from that breakout album, Stapleton will also perform new material from his forthcoming album due out on May 5. Fans will have the chance to hear the new songs on the road. The album title and any details have yet to be announced for discussed but it should be noted that the album will be released two years after his debut effort.
