I will admit that I am a big fan of Chris Stapleton. I was fortunate to meet and interview him back a couple of years ago when he performed at the World Chicken Festival here in my hometown of London, Kentucky. The record company has sat on his material for a while. Thankfully, a new album will be released in May and he is on tour with Little Big Town and later with Eric Church.
His latest single, “Traveller,” is one that is pleasant for the ears. From the acoustic guitar to the wail of the steel guitar, there is that pure country sound born in the heart of East Kentucky.
