A Kentucky native has released his debut album, and it has the music world talking. According to Rolling Stone, “Stapleton’s writing is masterful, but his huge country/blues voice—think Gregg Allman by way of the Kentucky coal mines—is what will really blow your hair back and make you literally feel every word he sings.”
Stapleton has enjoyed five #1 hits including the five-week No. 1 “Never Wanted Nothing More” recorded by Kenny Chesney, George Strait’s “Love’s Gonna Make it Alright” and Luke Bryan’s “Drink A Beer,” which Stapleton recently performed with Lady Antebellum at the recent CMT “Artists of the Year” show. Over the course of his acclaimed career, Stapleton has penned over 170 album cuts, including songs recorded by Adele, Tim McGraw, Brad Paisley and Dierks Bentley, and has such notable co-writers as Vince Gill, Peter Frampton and Sheryl Crow among others.
In addition to renditions of Dean Dillon and Linda Hargrove’s “Tennessee Whiskey” and Don Sampson’s “Was It 26,” the album “Traveller” features twelve original songs, including fan-favorite “Sometimes I Cry.”
Order the album via iTunes or through Stapleton’s website.
