Chris Stapleton returns to River Road Ice House

When: Thursday, August 11, 2016
Where: River Road Ice House, New Braunfels, TX
Opener: Quaker City Night Hawks
Tickets: SOLD OUT

The entire country music loving world now knows who Chris Stapleton is, although that wasn't always the case... Last October, a very large percentage of hardcore music lovers that stay REALLY tuned in to what's going on bought tickets to see Stapleton perform on October 25, 2015 at River Road Ice House. The weather wasn't super cooperative, and a large rain storm early on that day forced the show inside, and those few lucky souls who were able to make it witnessed history in the making. I've had it described to me as "amazing" and "the best music I've ever heard live" as well as a few others, but they performed for a packed INDOOR crowd, with the knowledge that they would need to eventually return and perform a make-up date outside to make good on the ticket sales for a big show on the big stage.

Two weeks later, Chris Stapleton won CMA awards for album of the year, new artist of the year and male vocalist of the year. He then went on earler this year to win numerous ACM, Americana Music Honors & Awards, ACCM, Billboard, British CMA, CMT awards and last but not least, TWO Grammys for Best Country Album and Best County Solo Performance! Needless to say, options and opportunities are seemingly wide open compared to last October, so the option of NOT returning to New Braunfels for a "make good" show would certainly be the easy path.

Oh man did they ever make good at River Road Ice House last night?! The typical band is Chris, his wife Morgane singing harmonies, J.T. Cure on bass and Derek Mixon on drums. Members of the band that aren't at all shows but at many of them are Mickey Raphael on harmonica and Robby Turner on pedal steel. Raphael has played with Willie Nelson for 43 years and was there last night, and Robby Turner who toured with The Highwaymen and later Waylon Jennings until Waylon's death, but has also been a go to steel player for many over several decades.

THANK YOU River Road Ice House for being such a WORLD CLASS live music venue!

Enjoy a couple of songs from last night's show!
