by Sarah Zupko

1 June 2015

Chris Stapleton was formerly the lead singer and one of the primary songwriters for the superlative Nashville-based bluegrass band the SteelDrivers.

Stapleton left the group a few years ago to pursue his own solo career and the result is this year’s excellent country/Americana album, Traveller, which debuted at #2 on the country charts. Today, Stapleton has released a new video for “15 Years of Traveller”.
