Chris Stapleton, Sam Lewis

When: Sat., June 13, 8 p.m. 2015

Bless him or blame him? On the heels of questionable songwriting cuts for bro-country titans Luke Bryan and Jason Aldean, Chris Stapleton released the genre’s most cuttingly raw album since Jamey Johnson’s That Lonesome Song. After fronting bluegrass band The SteelDrivers, Stapleton deftly mixes striking originals and smart takes on covers of George Jones staple “Tennessee Whiskey” and Charlie Daniels Band’s winking “Was It 26” on Traveller. His Southern-rock take on traditional country helps soften the edges of all those tailgates and tanlines. —Karlie Justus Marlowe
