Chris Stapleton is a country singer-songwriter, guitarist, and record producer.
Stapleton has cited Charles, Otis Redding and Freddie King as some of his musical influences, along with Kentucky-based country artists, Keith Whitley, Dwight Yoakam, and Patty Loveless. Stapleton's music has been described as a mix of bluegrass, outlaw country, blues, and rock and roll.
He was born in Lexington, Kentucky, and grew up in Staffordsville, Kentucky, until moving to Nashville, Tennessee, in 2001 to pursue a career in music writing songs. Subsequently, Stapleton signed a contract with Sea Gayle Music to write and publish his music.
Stapleton has co-written six #1 country songs including Kenny Chesney's five-week #1 "Never Wanted Nothing More," George Strait's "Love's Gonna Make It Alright," and Luke Bryan's "Drink a Beer". His songs have appeared on albums of many artists, including Adele, Brad Paisley, and Dierks Bentley. He has co-written with several artists as well including Vince Gill, Peter Frampton, Sheryl Crow, and Ed Sheeran.
As a vocalist, Stapleton sang lead in two bands -- The SteelDrivers (a bluegrass band known for single "If It Hadn't Been for Love") and The Jompson Brothers -- before he started recording as a solo artist.
In 2015, Stapleton released his solo debut, the critically acclaimed studio album Traveller, which reached #1 on the Billboard 200 and was certified triple platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).
His second studio album, From A Room: Volume 1, was released in May 2017, and earned him a second CMA Award for Album of the Year and also a Grammy Award for Best Country Album. From A Room: Volume 2 was released in December 2017.
