HITS Daily Double


Chris Stapleton’s whirlwind weekend included an SNL appearance, three Grammy wins and a Tom Petty tribute…but wait! There’s more! He’s going on tour.

Chris Stapleton’s All-American Road Show, produced by Live Nation, will start 6/16 in Brandon, Miss., stop at The Forum on 8/18 and Madison Square Garden on 11/2, and visit 36 cities in all. Marty Stuart and Brent Cobb are the special guests.

Fan club pre-sales begin 2/6 and the public onsale is 2/9. Full list of tour dates is below.

The Mercury Records Nashville artist spoke about Petty backstage at the Grammys, saying, “Wildflower is my favorite album of all time. Sonically and song-wise, I kind of judge all other things by that. I got to play three shows on tour with him last summer and had a brief conversation with Tom. Last thing he said to me was, ‘I hope we can do more of this.’ That was a thrill for me, because I’m such a fan of all of his work and The Heartbreakers, too Mike Campbell is a big influence on me.

“It was really a hard thing to do tonight. I was tearing up before I went out. By getting up there and doing that, maybe somebody found some relief or peace.”
