    These newly announced dates expand upon an already extensive tour schedule for Stapleton, who is continuing his "All-American Road Show" throughout the fall and is set to join George Strait for several stadium shows next year.

    These upcoming performances serve as a celebration of Stapleton's highly anticipated new album, "Higher," set to release on November 10 on Mercury Nashville (pre-order/pre-save). Produced by Dave Cobb, Morgane Stapleton, and Chris Stapleton, "Higher" was recorded at Nashville’s RCA Studio A and features 14 songs that showcase Stapleton's extraordinary voice and musical versatility, transcending traditional genre boundaries.

    Already receiving critical acclaim, Stapleton has released two album tracks, "Think I’m In Love With You" and "White Horse," which have been praised by Billboard as a "hell-raising anthem" and described by Consequence as a testament to Stapleton's cross-genre prowess. Brooklyn Vegan lauds "White Horse" as "one of the most jaw-dropping singles yet from an artist who rarely, if ever, misses."

    This year continues to be monumental for the 8-time Grammy, 15-time ACM, and 15-time CMA Award winner, who is nominated for three awards at the upcoming 57th Annual CMA Awards: Entertainer of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year, and Musical Event of the Year ("We Don’t Fight Anymore" with Carly Pearce). The awards ceremony will be broadcast live from Nashville on ABC on Wednesday, November 8 at 8:00 PM ET/7:00 PM CT.

    Stapleton's new album features an array of talented musicians, including Dave Cobb, J.T. Cure, Paul Franklin, Derek Mixon, Morgane Stapleton, and Lee Pardini, contributing their exceptional skills to this musical masterpiece.

    As one of the country's most esteemed and beloved musicians, Stapleton achieved numerous milestones over the past year, including being named Entertainer of the Year at the 58th ACM Awards, earning the prestigious ACM Triple Crown Award, and receiving Male Vocalist of the Year at the 2022 CMA Awards for the sixth time, setting a record for the most wins in the category. Stapleton also performed the National Anthem at Super Bowl LVII and has collaborated with renowned artists such as Adele, Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars, Ed Sheeran, Justin Timberlake, P!nk, Sheryl Crow, Santana, and many more.

    Stapleton's new album follows his critically acclaimed 2020 release, "Starting Over," which won three awards at the 67th Annual GRAMMYs, including Best Country Album, Best Country Solo Performance ("You Should Probably Leave"), and Best Country Song ("Cold"). It also earned Album of the Year honors at both the CMA and ACM Awards and received rave reviews from numerous publications.

    Before "Starting Over," Stapleton released two Platinum-certified albums in 2017, "From A Room: Volume 1" and "From A Room: Volume 2," in addition to his breakthrough solo debut album, "Traveller," which achieved 5x Platinum status in 2015.
