Chris Stapleton boldly introduced himself to the public at-large in 2015 with the release of his breakthrough debut album, Traveller. Released in May on Mercury Records Nashville, Traveller initially debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard Country Albums chart with more than 27,000 albums sold, making it one of the best-selling first weeks by a debut country artist in 2015.
Following a historic turn on the CMA Awards where Stapleton became the first artist to win Album of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year and New Artist of the Year at the same awards,Traveller became the first album to re-enter the Billboard 200 all-genre album chart at No. 1, where it stayed for two straight weeks. The album has also remained No. 1 on the Billboard Country chart for ten straight weeks.
Recently, Stapleton won two awards at the 58th Annual GRAMMY Awards, Best Country Album and Best Country Solo Performance ("Traveller").
