Chris Stapleton will be front and center in everyone’s living room as he sings the National Anthem at Super Bowl LVII when the Kansas City Chiefs play the Philadelphia Eagles.
He wasn’t always so recognizable: before releasing his debut solo album, Traveller, in 2015; he had written multiple songs for other artists.

Chris came to Nashville in 2001 to pursue a career in music and quickly signed a publishing deal as a songwriter.
