Chris Stapleton isn’t just the man behind Traveller, the breakout album of the century in Nashville. He’s not just another pretty face in the ultra-talented gene pool of CMA New Artist of the Year nominees, either. No, Stapleton is the man behind over 170 album cuts and six No. 1 hit songs, including “Never Wanted Nothing More” recorded by Kenny Chesney, “Love’s Gonna Make it Alright” recorded by George Strait, “Drink A Beer” recorded by Luke Bryan and the recent hit, “Crash and Burn” recorded by Thomas Rhett.
Stapleton has had his songs recorded from Adele to Dierks Bentley and has soundtrack cuts on “Cars 2” and “Valentine’s Day.”
Basically, Stapleton is as diverse as he is talented and he has finally shared his secrets with the world. Yes, he has a formula, but also let’s his influences guide him.
Who isn’t going to go out and buy some windchimes now?
