Wife and I got free tickets to see Chris Stapleton last night at CMAC in NY. Now I I'm not a country guy more traditional blues but free tickets, killler summer night and cant pass that up. I'm familiar with his '62 Fender brown Princeton amp. Wow!!! That guy has some serious talent, chops, voice and guitar tone. His tunes and band is really phenomenal. I read an interview afterwards that says he just plays the signature new ones on the road now. The breakup, sustain and articulation was so Fendery and impressive. One thing that I wasn't aware of that sounded killer was his '62 RI Fender Jazzmaster. It was giving plenty of breakup without sounding too overdriven or muddy. His voice.....damn....he has an impressive, really impressive gravely range. He was walking from upper octave notes all the way down with a great southern vibrato and grit. I don't know if he writes his own songs but awesome structure with catchy chorus lines. He COMMANDS a stage without trying to overplay or over sing. Country chord changes are definitely different than blues (Im used to 1,4,5.) If anyone has a chance to catch him definitely worth the money.. Marcus King and Margo Price opened. I preferred when Marcus played his 345 as his Tele sounded really treble and too bright. He's got some pipes on him too.
