Chris Stapleton added to his All-American Road Show in the last few days, confirming an abundance of tour dates that will stretch between early-March and the first days of November. A variety of well-known artists who have worked with Stapleton in the past will provide an array of opening acts on a tour that weaves throughout the right half of the nation. Chris Stapleton 2019 Tour Tickets are available to the general public now.
Making the Impossible… Possible
Chris Stapleton is one of the coolest customers in country music. The man with a large, robust beard and flowing blonde locks is a master on the guitar, and he is an absolute natural on the microphone. It’s like he’s not even putting any effort into his craft when he sings great songs that strike emotional cords within his fans. It’s almost as if he’s just up there doing what he was absolutely born to do. He has a look that speaks of experience and wisdom, yet he will be just 40 years old throughout most of these upcoming tour dates.
It’s absolutely amazing that nearly every single popular modern-day country music artist’s path was paved by way of Nashville, Tennessee. To become a true country music great without ever setting foot in that town, making the connections and building a fan base would be like making it into Major League Baseball without ever actually setting foot on a home plate. Translation: nearly impossible.
Making it Big
Stapleton made his way through the iconic Midwestern city in the first year of the 21st century, when America was wide open with opportunity and the Internet and digital age was just beginning to have an impact on things such as the music business. It took several years of him strumming his guitar as an early 20-something and making a name for himself in the town where hundreds if not thousands of folks of his age were hoping to do the same thing. As is also the case with most chart-toppers, Stapleton initially got his huge break when he was asked to be an opening act for an established band, in this case the Zac Brown Band in 2013.
He signed to Mercury Nashville in 2013 after a full 12 years of being in and out of the city while creating a country music career. Fast-forward to 2019, and Stapleton is on the verge of a huge tour that will cement his place as one of the most popular and iconic country music performers currently touring and making music.
Stapleton took up permanent residency in the Nashville area, where he continues to build a family with his fellow singer and songwriter wife. During a huge stop on the second leg of this current tour, he announced to a sold-out-out New York City audience that the couple is expecting their fifth child in the late spring of 2019.
The gift will coincide with the beginning of the tour, which will first hit North American soil for consecutive performances at the Choctaw Grand Theater in Durant, Oklahoma on March 15 and March 16. The tour will then take large breaks before performances in Atlanta at Mercedes-Benz Stadium on March 30, a concert at Country Thunder in Florence, Arizona on April 14 and a show at the Mack, Jack & McConaughey Gala in Austin, Texas on April 25.
July and August are packed with shows, as the tour will weave through the East Coast and the Midwest. Some of the biggest tour dates during this month include performances in Omaha on the 19th, Bangor, Maine on the 25th and Bethel, New York at the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts on July 26.
August Line Up
August is the most packed month on the schedule as of now, and it will begin with shows in Minnesota and West Virginia before jumping back up to the East Coast for an August 9 performance at PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, New Jersey and performances in the following evenings in KeyBank Pavilion in Burgettstown, Pennsylvania and Meriwether Post Pavilion in Columbia, Maryland. Perhaps the biggest August performance is a huge show at Budweiser Stage in Toronto on the 17th. The month will conclude with a handful of huge shows in The South, including performances at Verizon Arena in Little Rock, Century Link Center in Bossier City, and two Alabama performances.
August will include more shows in The South and a cut up back to the Midwest before the run concludes with shows on the first nights of November at Bon Secours Wellness Arena in Greenville, South Carolina and the KFC Yum! Center in Louisville, Kentucky. All fans interested in securing 2019 Chris Stapleton Tour Tickets can quickly and easily do so now.
