Country music phenom Chris Stapleton‘s sophomore solo album From A Room: Volume One has been certified Gold by the RIAA for selling over 500,000 copies. The record, which dropped in early May, is the fifth album of 2017 to reach that status – and the only one in the country music genre this year.
Due to an injury to his right index finger, Stapleton was forced to postpone and reschedule multiple “The All-American Road Show” tour dates over the span of three weeks. “After seeing a specialist, I have some information to share. I’m on the road to recovery from a broken bone & a detached tendon in my right index finger. The doctor is hopeful that with some physical therapy I will be playing guitar again soon. Right now, I can’t possibly give you guys the show you deserve. I always want to give you my very best.” Stapleton shared in a message to his fans.
Dear Everybody, First of all, I want to thank you for all of the positive thoughts and kind words you have shared over the last few days. So many of you have been inconvenienced and I'm grateful for your patience and graciousness. After seeing a specialist, I have some information to share. I’m on the road to recovery from a broken bone & a detached tendon in my right index finger. The doctor is hopeful that with some physical therapy I will be playing guitar again soon. Right now, I can't possibly give you guys the show you deserve. I always want to give you my very best. There is little in this world that I enjoy more than getting to make music with all of you night after night. Thank you for the privilege. Your support and understanding through all of this lets me know now, more than ever, I have the best fans in the world. Sincerely, Chris Stapleton
