Five-time Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter and musician Chris Stapleton is nominated in three categories at the 64th Annual GRAMMY Awards: Best Country Album (Starting Over), Best Country Song ("Cold") and Best Country Solo Performance ("You Should Probably Leave"). 

The live awards ceremony will be broadcast Monday, January 31 at 8:00pm ET/7:00pm CT on CBS. 

The nominations add to a monumental few weeks for Stapleton, who led winners at the 55th Annual CMA Awards earlier this month with six awards: Male Vocalist of the Year, Album of the Year (Starting Over, as artist and producer), Song of the Year ("Starting Over") and Single of the Year ("Starting Over," as artist and producer). Moreover, Stapleton took home Album of the Year at the 56th Academy of Country Music Awards earlier this year.

Released last fall on Mercury Records Nashville (stream/purchase here), Starting Over is an album of startling prescience, featuring fourteen tracks that examine life's simplest joys and most serious struggles. 

Once again produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb, the record debuted at #1 on Billboard's Country Albums chart and landed on several "Best of 2020" lists including NPR Music, Rolling Stone, Billboard, Esquire, Vulture, The Tennessean and The New York Times, who declares, "Chris Stapleton's roar isn't designed to scare you off. It's regal, an announcement of an alpha figure asserting his primacy…on this, his fourth album, the thrill is back." 


Grammy Awards: Luke Combs Nominated for Best Country Solo Performance

Adding to his landmark year, Stapleton is currently in the midst of his extensive "All-American Road Show" with upcoming stops at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena, Memphis' FedEx Forum, Washington State's Gorge Amphitheatre and "A Concert for Kentucky"—a special performance to be held at University of Kentucky's Kroger Field on April 23, 2022.

The concert is the first ever held at UK's Kroger Field and will feature very special guests Willie Nelson and Family, Sheryl Crow and Yola. 100% of the concert's net proceeds will benefit Stapleton's newly created Outlaw State of Kind Hometown Fund. Established in partnership with the Blue Grass Community Foundation, the fund will specifically support local and national organizations directly impacting Kentucky, with initial grant distributions focusing on music and arts education. Tickets are on sale now at ChrisStapleton.com

Kentucky-born Stapleton is a five-time Grammy, 16x CMA and 9x ACM Award-winner and one of the country's most respected and beloved musicians. Following 2015's quintuple platinum breakthrough solo debut album Traveller, Stapleton released two #1 albums in 2017. Both From A Room: Volume 1 (certified platinum) and From A Room: Volume 2 (certified gold) take their name from legendary RCA Studio A, where they were recorded with Cobb.


Grammy Awards: Billy Strings Nominated for Best Bluegrass Album and Best American Roots Performance

Released to overwhelming critical acclaim, The Tennessean praises, "Both are rich with the textures of Stapleton's vocals that make him one of country music's most beloved artists, classic country sounds and thoughtful articulate lyrics about love, life and pain." He was also recently announced as the first-ever "Artist-Songwriter of the Decade" recipient by the Academy of Country Music.
