Country superstar Chris Stapleton is returning to Las Vegas, with special guest Maren Morris, for a special performance at the Pearl Concert Theater inside Palms Casino Resort on Thursday, March 30, 2017 at 8 p.m.
Renowned and respected in Nashville, Chris Stapleton has co-written six number one hits for some of country music’s biggest stars and has continually worked as an in-demand session musician, providing masterful backup vocals and guitar work to countless pieces of music.
Released in May 2015 on Mercury Records Nashville, Stapleton’s album Traveller initially debuted at number two on the Billboard Country Albums chart with more than 27,000 albums sold, making it the best-selling first week by a debut country artist in 2015. The album also received immediate and extensive critical acclaim and landed him bookings on “Late Show with David Letterman,” “The View,” “Late Night with Seth Meyers” and “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” among others.
Following a historic turn on the CMA Awards — Stapleton is the first artist to win “Album of the Year,” “Male Vocalist of the Year” and “New Artist of the Year” at the same awards – Traveller became the first album to re-enter the Billboard 200 all-genre album chart at No. 1, where it stayed for two straight weeks. Stapleton capped off the year with four nominations at the 58th Annual Grammy Awards — “Album of the Year,” “Best Country Album,” “Best Country Song” (“Traveller”) and “Best Country Solo Performance” (“Traveller”).
Co-produced with Dave Cobb, who was also nominated in the “Producer of the Year” category, Traveller is comprised of songs written throughout Stapleton’s 15-year career and evokes his childhood when country, blues, rock and R&B swirled together to create a distinctive sound that still resonates with modern fans.
Texas native Maren Morris began her musical career in 2005, with the release of her debut album Walk On. Her subsequent releases, All That it Takes and Live Wire were released in 2007 and 2011 to critical acclaim and supplanted Morris as one of country music’s up-and-coming voices. Following a five-song, self-titled EP in 2015, which peaked at number one on the Billboard Top Heatseekers chart, Morris returned with 2016’s Hero, which peaked at number five on the Billboard 200 chart and featured the platinum-certified single “My Church.”
