This weekend, Chris Stapleton not only plays his own sold-out stop on his All-American Road Show tour, but he’s also opening for The Eagles at AT&T Stadium in Dallas, Texas.
“Yeah, it’s great, you know,” Chris says of the opportunity. “What more could you ask for out of a year? You get to go out and play some of your own shows and play some stadiums with heroes. So it’s a real good year for us.”
The “Broken Halos” hitmaker admits he jumped at the chance to get to know the musical icons a little better.
“I have only met Don Henley in hallways at awards shows,” Chris tells ABC Radio, “and I doubt if he would remember that.”
“I have spoken to Joe Walsh,” Chris continues. “I’ve played a few things with Joe Walsh, and he actually called me to play his charity thing, and we’re trying to work that out. So I know Joe a little bit just from a phone conversation,” he laughs.
“Vince Gill, I guess he’s an honorary Eagle at this point. I know him better than any of the other guys,” Chris admits.
Chris plays Rogers, Arkansas on Friday night, before taking the stage at the home of the Dallas Cowboys on Saturday. His wife Morgane won’t be along on this summer’s trek, as she’s home taking care of their newborn twins.
Chris’s new single, “Millionaire,” is currently climbing the country chart.
