Chris Stapleton boldly introduced himself to the public at-large in 2015 with the release of his breakthrough debut album, Traveller.
Released in May 2015 on Mercury Records Nashville, Traveller initially debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard Country Albums chart with more than 27,000 albums sold, making it one of the best-selling first weeks by a debut country artist in 2015. It’s also currently the top selling country album of 2016 and second best across all genres (only surpassed by Adele). Moreover, the album continues to receive extensive critical acclaim and has landed Stapleton bookings on multiple national TV shows including recent appearances on Saturday Night Live and CBS News Sunday Morning.
Chris Stapleton won “Male Vocalist of the Year” and “Music Video of the Year” (“Fire Away”) at The 50th Annual CMA Awards. This marks Stapleton’s second consecutive Male Vocalist win and his first for Music Video. The two new awards cap off a series of breakthrough years for Stapleton since the release of his now certified RIAA double platinum solo debut album, Traveller. The breakthrough album has gone on to receive multiple Grammy, CMA and ACM awards and continues to consistently top the Billboard Country Albums chart—over a year since its May 2015 release on Mercury Records Nashville.
