Chris Stapleton
Higher

[ Mercury Nashville / CD ]

Release Date: Friday 10 November 2023

Produced by Dave Cobb, Morgane Stapleton, and Stapleton, Higher was recorded at Nashville's RCA Studio A. Across its 14 songs, Stapleton showcases his supernatural voice and musical versatility with songs that span genres and defy easy categorization. Alongside Stapleton (vocals, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, slide electric guitar), the album features Cobb (acoustic guitar, eclectic guitar), J.T. Cure (bass), Paul Franklin (pedal steel), Derek Mixon (drums), Morgane (background vocals, synthesizer, tambourine), and Lee Pardini (organ, piano).

One of the country's most respected and beloved musicians, in the past year Stapleton was named Entertainer of the Year at the 58th ACM Awards - resulting in a prestigious ACM Triple Crown Award - and Male Vocalist of the Year at the 2022 CMA Awards - his sixth time earning the award, setting the record for most wins ever in the category. Additionally, in February, he performed the National Anthem at Super Bowl LVII and has collaborated in recent years with Adele, Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars, Ed Sheeran, Justin Timberlake, P!nk, Sheryl Crow, Santana, and many more.

The new album follows 2020's acclaimed Starting Over, which went on to win three awards at the 67th Annual GRAMMYs: Best Country Album, Best Country Solo Performance ("You Should Probably Leave") and Best Country Song ("Cold") in addition to earning Album of the Year honors at both the CMA and ACM Awards. Called a "a sure-footed masterpiece" by the Associated Press, the album landed on "Best of 2020" lists at NPR Music, Rolling Stone, Billboard, Esquire, Vulture, The Tennessean, and The New York Times.
