DURANT, Okla., (December 13, 2021) – Five-time Grammy award winning artist Chris Stapleton will perform live at The Grand Theater at Choctaw Casino & Resort- Durant on Friday, March 18.

Stapleton is a, 16-time Country Music Association and nine-time Academy of Country Music 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 No. 1 albums in 2017. Both From A Room: Volume 1 and From A Room: Volume 2. Stapleton was also recently announced as the first-ever “Artist-Songwriter of the Decade” recipient by the Academy of Country Music.

Stapleton was 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” and led winners at the 55th Annual CMA Awards with six awards—Male Vocalist of the Year, Album of the Year Starting Over, Song of the Year “Starting Over” and Single of the Year “Starting Over.” He also took home Album of the Year at the 56th Academy of Country Music Awards earlier this year.

Released last fall, Starting Over is an album of startling prescience, featuring fourteen tracks that examine life’s simplest joys and most serious struggles. The record debuted at No. 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.
