Chris Stapleton burst onto the country music scene with one of the most prolific albums of the decade with his debut solo studio album, Traveller, five years ago on May 5th, 2015. The collection, which was named Album of the Year by both the CMA and ACM, was certified quadruple platinum last year.
“It’s about a journey in a musical sense and in a physical sense and in a spiritual sense. In every way that you can have a journey, this record is kind of that for me, and hopefully for some other folks too,” says Chris.
The global supstar is also celebrating the third anniversary of the release of From A Room: Volume One in 2017.

Chris Stapleton (title of Traveller) OC: …folks too. :43
“The song ‘Traveller’ and how it ended up being the title of the record, it seemed like a natural thing to call it, because a lot of, certainly the inspiration for this record came from a series of events. It’s kind of the only song that was written inside of, well, there might’ve been one other song written inside of knowing I was going to make this record in this way. The rest of the songs came from outside of that time period. So, that’s one reason to name it that. The other reason is that it can mean a lot of different things to a lot of different people. It’s about a journey in a musical sense and in a physical sense and in a spiritual sense. In every way that you can have a journey, this record is kind of that for me, and hopefully for some other folks too.”
