Chris Stapleton recently learned that his 2015 album, Traveller, was certified triple platinum by the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America), while From A Room: Volume 1 has been certified platinum and From A Room: Volume 2 has gone gold. When making albums, Chris wants them to be good, from top to bottom.
He tells us: “We’re all incredibly fortunate that out on the road that the people who come out to the shows dig that deep. It sure is a powerful thing when you can pull out an album cut and have everybody sing along and have somebody be excited about it or watch that be somebody’s song they were hoping you were going to play that night. I care about the album, quite a bit, and I kind of learned that from Tom Petty. He made my favorite record of all time, which was Wild Flowers, and that album really made me appreciate the album, top to bottom. I try to think about that record a lot when I’m making records, and that’s the way I feel about albums. I want them to be good, top to bottom.”
The reigning ACM and CMA Male Vocalist of the Year recently released his latest song, “Millionaire,” which is featured on his gold-selling album, From A Room: Volume 2.
Chris will hit the road with his 2018 All-American Road Show Tour, featuring Marty Stuart and Brent Cobb, beginning on June 16th in Brandon, Mississippi.
