Chris Stapleton leads nominees at the 2018 CMA Awards with five nominations: Entertainer of the Year, Album of the Year (From A Room: Volume 2), Male Vocalist of the Year, Single of the Year (“Broken Halos”) and Song of the Year (“Broken Halos”). The awards ceremony will be broadcast on ABC live from Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on Wednesday, November 14 at 8:00pm ET/7:00pm CT.
The nominations celebrate a triumphant year for Stapleton following the release of his two acclaimed 2017 albums—From A Room: Volume 1 (certified platinum) and From A Room: Volume 2 (certified gold).
Stapleton was also recently awarded Best Country Album (From A Room: Volume 1), Best Country Song (“Broken Halos”) and Best Country Solo Performance (“Either Way”) at the 60th GRAMMY Awards, Album of the Year (From A Room: Volume 1) and Male Vocalist of the Year at The 51st Annual CMA Awards, Male Vocalist of the Year and Album of the Year (From A Room: Volume 1 as both artist and producer) at the 53rd Academy of Country Music Awards and Top Country Artist, Top Country Male Artist and Top Country Album (From A Room: Volume 1) at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards.
Both Volume 1 and Volume 2 take their name from Nashville’s historic RCA Studio A (the capital “A” in “From A Room”) where they were recorded with Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb. Along with Stapleton on vocals and guitar and Cobb on acoustic guitar, the album features Morgane Stapleton on harmony vocals as well as longtime band-members J.T. Cure on bass and Derek Mixon on drums.
In celebration of the albums, Stapleton is currently in the midst of his expansive “Chris Stapleton’s All-American Road Show” tour. Dates include New York’s Madison Square Garden, Chicago’s Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre and Atlanta’s Lakewood Amphitheater among many others. Produced by Live Nation, the tour will feature Marty Stuart and Brent Cobb as special guests. All tickets are now on-sale. See below for complete tour itinerary.
Moreover, Stapleton is featured on Justin Timberlake’s new song, “Say Something.” The music video—which was filmed in a single shot at L.A.’s historic Bradbury Building—has been viewed over 200 million times. Watch here
