The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum’s new exhibit, “Chris Stapleton: Since 1978″ presented by Ram Trucks, opens today (July 1).
The exhibit highlights Stapleton’s multi-faceted career journey, from his Kentucky roots and success as a songwriter to his rise to stardom as one of the most powerful voices from the country. Items featured in “Chris Stapleton: Since 1978” include instruments, awards, stage and screen costumes, and personal artifacts.
The dynamic singer, songwriter and musician has collaborated with everyone from Naked Bobby and carlos santana at Justin Timberlake and P!nk. Before breaking through in 2015 with his quadruple Platinum album Traveler, he became an in-demand songwriter in Nashville for more than a decade. In addition to Stapleton’s hits, he has had songs recorded by Luke Bryan, Kenny Chesney, Alison Krauss and Union Station, George Strait, Sheryl Raven, Thomas Rhet, Lee Ann Womack and much more.
Stapleton recently teamed up with the Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival and Fandiem to launch a fundraising campaign to benefit his charity, Outlaw State of Kind. The special campaign is giving one lucky fan and one guest an all-expenses-paid VIP trip to the 2022 Pilgrimage Festival September 24-25 in Franklin, Tennessee, along with a signed vintage Stapleton Gibson ES-335 guitar.
