Chris Stapleton’s highly anticipated solo debut album, Traveller, is available now. Recorded at Nashville’s historic RCA Studio A (with additional production at The Castle and Blackbird Studio in Middle Tennessee), Traveller was produced by Dave Cobb (Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell).
“The song ‘Traveller’ and how it ended up being the title of the record, it seemed like a natural thing to call it, because a lot of, certainly the inspiration for this record came from a series of events,” says Chris. “Another reason is that it can mean a lot of different things to a lot of different people. It’s about a journey in a musical sense and in a physical sense and in a spiritual sense. In every way that you can have a journey, this record is kind of that for me, and hopefully for some other folks too.”
In addition to renditions of Dean Dillon and Linda Hargrove’s “Tennessee Whiskey” (recorded by George Jones and David Allan Coe) and Don Sampson’s “Was It 26,” the album features twelve original songs, including fan-favorite “Sometimes I Cry,” for which Chris returned to RCA Studio A to record a new version of “Sometimes I Cry” live-to-tape in front of an audience.
