Chris Stapleton appears on Mountain Stage, recorded live in Charleston, W.Va. Originally from Kentucky, Stapleton has spent the past 15 years working his way through Nashville's ranks to become one of the scene's most respected and in-demand songwriters. He's written No. 1 songs for George Strait, Luke Bryan, Kenny Chesney, Darius Rucker and Josh Turner; been nominated for three Grammy Awards; and, with beloved bluegrass band The Steeldrivers, won the International Bluegrass Music Association's "Emerging Artist Of The Year" award.

Stapleton's songwriting credits span many genres and artists from Adele to Jason Aldean, and he's recorded with everyone from Miranda Lambert to Don Williams. He appears here with his own band, featuring his partner in life and music, Morgane Stapleton, on backing vocals. JT Cure plays bass, along with steel guitarist Roby Turner and drummer Derek Mixon.
