Stapleton postpones All American Road Show to '21
Sunday, May 17, 2020
– Chris Stapleton announced today he was postponing this year's All-American Road Show until 2021, another victim of COVID-19.
"We are very sorry to announce that this year's All-American Road Show has been postponed & rescheduled for 2021," he said in a social media post. "We've made this decision with the health and safety of our fans, touring family, and the communities we travel through as our number one priority."
The rescheduled dates for the shows at Globe Life Field in Arlington and Wrigley Field in Chicago will be announced as soon as possible, pending Major League Baseball's final schedule for 2021. The show at Truist Park in Atlanta has been canceled, and tickets will be automatically refunded.
"We'll be returning to Atlanta next year, and those details will be announced at a later date," Stapleton said.
"We appreciate your patience and understanding as we all navigate these unusual times. We miss seeing your faces in the crowd, hearing your voices and sharing the moments that we can only have when we come together in music. We hope to see you next year. Until then we wish you all good health & safety. Stay strong & God bless. - Morgane & Chris"
Marty Stuart and Brent Cobb were slated to be on the 2020 tour. There was no word if they would be back in 2021.
All previously purchased tickets will be honored for the rescheduled dates. For those unable to attend a rescheduled date, they have 30 days to obtain a refund that will be made available at your point of purchase.

From A Room: Volume 2
There is no bigger artist in country music today, perhaps even in American music, than Chris Stapleton. His appeal reaches beyond just the commercial country fans for his gritty bluesy approach. 2015's "Traveller" set a high bar, which was met by this year's release of "From A Room: Volume 1," which won Album of the Year in the 51st CMA Awards. Stapleton also garnered the Male Vocalist of the Year for his second time. Now seven months after that release, "From »»»

Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be).

John Paul White opined with a glint in his eyes that his songs were not of the uplifting variety. In fact, they were downright dark. How else to explain "The Long Way" with the line "long way home back to you." Or "James," a song inspired by his grandfather who suffered from dementia.
But lest you think that the Alabama... »»»
