What better way to return than with a look back at Chris Stapleton hitting Nissan stage for CMA Fest?
I took a much needed post-CMA Fest vacation out in California. It has had actually been years since I took time off to lounge around by a beach. I took great pleasure in doing absolutely nothing for a little while. I didn’t think about blogging and I didn’t go to any shows. But I did accidentally see Robby Krieger play in a garage jam band — and that was spectacular.
But now, it’s back to business, continuing my look back at the amazing (and hot) CMA Festival. One of the highlights of the weekend was being in the pit to see Chris Stapleton. The ACM and CMA Award winner belted out the songs off his debut album, Traveller. There’s not much I can say that hasn’t already been said about the soulful vocals of Stapleton. The only downside to the set was that it was so short. The night was filled with spectacular music. But I think we can all agree Stapleton could have used a few more songs.
