Country artist Chris Stapleton has been everywhere lately! The singer recently released “The Ballad of the Lonesome Cowboy,” a single he contributed to the movie Toy Story 4. Prior to that, he appeared on albums by Pink and Justin Timberlake. Now, he roams to Merriweather Post Pavilion on Sunday, Aug. 11 with his All American Roadshow.
Chris Stapleton’s All-American Roadshow Tour launched in support of Chris’ second and third studio albums, From a Room: Volume 1 and From a Room: Volume 2. The tour began in 2017, and it will run through Nov. 2, when it wraps in Baltimore.
Prior to his solo career, Chris was the vocalist for bluegrass group The SteelDrivers. In 2015, he released Traveller, his solo debut album. He followed that up with From a Room: Volume 1 in May 2017 and From a Room: Volume 2 in December 2017.

In a review for the AV Club, Gwen Ihnat says Chris runs the full gamut of emotions in his ascendant music.
“Stapleton’s gravelly vocals sell his own openly emotive songs like no one else could, the poetic imagery in tracks like ‘Scarecrow in the Garden’ transcending typical beer-and-babes fodder,” Gwen wrote: “The fields were green as dollars / ’Cause the dirt was black as night.”
