Moe’s is quickly becoming Mobile’s source for up-and-coming country acts. Chris Stapleton will be the next in line to perform before Moe’s patrons. The son of a Kentucky coal miner, Stapleton has made himself known throughout the modern country scene as both a performer and a songwriter.

As a performer, Stapleton spent time as the lead singer/guitarist of the critically acclaimed bluegrass group The SteelDrivers. He also delved into the world of rock with the band The Jompson Brothers.

As a songwriter, Stapleton penned hit songs such as “Never Wanted Nothing More” (Kenny Chesney) and “Love’s Gonna Make It Alright” (George Strait). In all, this country artist was responsible for creating four number one hits.

Recently, Stapleton has been focusing on a solo career. The public has been sampling his latest material at live performances and online. Songs such as “Sometimes I Cry” and “What Are You Listening” present a country singer who is not afraid to throw a little soul into the mix.
