Fresh off a performance on Saturday Night Live and three wins at the 60th GRAMMY Awards Sunday night (1/28), Chris Stapleton has announced his plans for his 2018 tour. The country hit-maker will revive his wildly-successful All-American Road Show Tour for the 2018 year with a slew of new dates with special guests Marty Stuart and Brent Cobb.

Touring has always been an important part of Stapleton’s career, as the singer/songwriter appreciates giving his fans a live experience of the music he’s worked so hard on in the studio. Part of the experience, he says, is creating an intimate experience even within the biggest venues.

“You find out really early that basketball arenas and hockey arenas aren’t designed to sound good. That’s just not what they are made for. They are made to play basketball and hockey in. When you’re playing these places, people are paying more for tickets and sitting farther away. So, you feel a responsibility – at least I do – to try to make that experience musically and sonically, the best that it can be,” he told us previously. “I figured out very early – long before I headlined that those places are probably the most challenging places to play music. Dreaming up things on napkins over the years, I always would draw things and try to come up with ideas to make things better and easier to play on and in, and hopefully have the result of something that sounds better out front. This is a march in that direction, and hopefully it will achieve some of that.”

Tickets for Stapleton’s 2018 All-American Road Show Tour go on sale beginning Feb. 9.
