Having written emotional tunes for artists like Kenny Chesney, Luke Bryan, and Darius Rucker (not to mention fronting the GRAMMY®-nominated bluegrass band the SteelDrivers), Chris Stapleton steps into his own. Despite its dusky presentation and Stapleton’s formidable beard, Traveller isn’t just an outlaw record, but a master class in country bittersweetness— from the waltz-time nostalgia of “More of You” to the blistering “Might as Well Get Stoned,” which sounds as though it took its own advice. As for Stapleton’s earthy, unvarnished voice, well, he might be a writer, but he certainly doesn’t sing like one.
