In a rap/pop dominated era when guitar-based albums are lucky to be certified Styrofoam, Southern-rocker/outlaw-country singer Chris Stapleton has notched a series of platinum and gold selling albums.

Stapleton, also a Grammy winner, will perform at Huntsville’s Von Braun Center Aug. 29.

His latest tour, dubbed “All American Road Show,” hits Orange Beach’s The Wharf Amphitheater Aug. 31.

The Nashville-based artist’s articulate hirsute howl has graced hits such as “Tennessee Whiskey,” “Parachute,” “Halos” and “Millionaires.”

Stapleton’s music exudes enough crossover appeal he can open for hard-rock legends Guns N’ Roses in a stadium or duet with pop hottie Justin Timberlake at the CMA Awards.

He’s also toured with Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Tom Petty and the Eagles.

A Kentucky native, Stapleton’s solo albums include 2015’s triple-platinum “Traveller” and 2017’s platinum “From a Room: Volume 1” and gold-certified “From A Room: Volume 2.”

According to a post on Stapleton’s social media, “All American Road Show” tickets go onsale to the general public Feb. 1 via ticketmaster.com.

Those interested can sign up for Jan. 29 pre-sale access at stapletonfanclub.com.
