Chris Stapleton has announced new 2021 dates for his All-American Road Show!
Chris, like every artist and fan, says “I miss touring deeply.”
And now it looks like the long wait to hear his ACM Award winning Album of the Year Starting Over in-person is over.
Starting in Chicago on July 17th, it looks like the All-American Road Show will then be on the road for nearly the next year. Various concerts will include an awesome line of various special guests…including, Caylee Hammack, Dwight Yoakam, Elle King, Jamey Johnson, Kendell Marvel, Margo Price, Mavis Staples, Nikki Lane, Sheryl Crow, The Dirty Knobs with Mike Campbell, The Highwomen, The Marcus King Band, Willie Nelson, and Yola.
Tickets for the newly announced dates for Chris Stapleton’s All-American Road Show begin next Friday – April 30th.
While Chris is very much looking for a return to the road, he does says that the last year at home offered him something that his usually touring life would not have, “The silver lining and the mixed blessing during the pandemic for me is I’ve gotten to spend more time being a dad and being with my children than I’ve ever gotten to do certainly as a touring musician. I have three children under the age of three and I have two older ones that are 12 and 10. When I go in to get the boys in the morning, and I open the door, they say ‘Daddy’ before I even open the door, and I’ve never really had that before. So, that’s kind of a neat thing for me to get to have that, so I’m thankful for that and I’m grateful for that. As much as I look forward to getting back out on the road, I’ll miss a little bit of that.”
One of the songs that fans will be looking forward to seeing Chris perform live (with plenty of tissues in hand), is the track he just sang on this year’s ACM Awards with Miranda Lambert — just in case you missed it…this is “Maggie’s Song.”
