Chris Stapleton 2.0 coming May 5

ABC/Image Group LAThere’s a new record and tour on the way from country’s break-out star from the 2015 CMAs, Chris Stapleton.

The artist whose Traveller album and history-making CMA performance with Justin Timberlake made him a superstar will release his as-yet-untitled sophomore effort on May 5, exactly two years since his breakthrough project came out.

He’ll kick off his All-American Road Show trek the same day in Alpharetta, Georgia, with pre-sales starting next Tuesday, February 21. Brothers Osborne, Anderson East, Margo Price, Brent Cobb and Lucie Silvas will all take turns opening.

Kelsea Ballerini's main squeeze Morgan Evans wants to "Kiss Somebody"Warner Nashville/Robby KleinSo far, we’ve gotten to know Australian Morgan Evans mainly as Kelsea Ballerini’s fiancé, and through his mega-mashup covers of established hitmakers. But Friday, we’ll get our first taste of his own music, as Morgan releases his first single for Warner Nashville, titled “Kiss Somebody.”

On his socials, Morgan teases a special “prelude” video that’s coming as well. Inspired by the song’s lyric “sometimes you’ve got to kiss somebody in the back of a cab,” the new clip finds Morgan performing the tune in a vintage taxi, as he rides around Music City on a hot summer night.

As for the person Morgan happens to be kissing in real life, Kelsea has teased that the two definitely plan to make their union official before 2017 comes to a close.
