Chris Stapleton Radio will be curated and presented by Stapleton and his band, The Honchos. The channel will feature music from his career and tracks by legendary artists in Country, Rock, Soul, and more. Listeners will get an inside look at the stories behind Stapleton’s songs and the music that has influenced him, including artists like Tom Petty, George Jones, John Prine, Lainey Wilson, Mavis Staples, Merle Haggard, Miranda Lambert, Tyler Childers, Bob Dylan, and others.

“Chris Stapleton Radio gives people another way to connect with our music — where me and the rest of the guys in the band and Morgane are coming from,” Stapleton explained in a statement. “What our influences are. Knowing that when people come to watch a show, what they’re hearing is informed by the things that are on this channel. That’s probably the ultimate reason that I want to do this. We’re honored and thrilled to bring Chris Stapleton Radio to life at SiriusXM.” 

Scott Greenstein, SiriusXM’s President and Chief Content Officer, added, “Chris Stapleton is one of country music’s most prolific singer-songwriters today and we are thrilled to collaborate with him on his own year-round SiriusXM channel. We are truly excited to have Chris bring his own channel to life, sharing with our listeners not only his catalog of music but his insights and the music and artists that he loves and is inspired by.”

Chris Stapleton Radio joins a stellar lineup of SiriusXM channels featuring some of the biggest names in music, including Carrie Underwood’s CARRIE’S COUNTRY, The Beatles Channel, Kenny Chesney’s No Shoes Radio, Kelly Clarkson Connection, and Life With John Mayer, among others.

The news comes just days after Stapleton became the top winner at the 59th Academy of Country Music Awards, taking home four wins: Album of the Year for Higher (as artist and producer), Male Artist of the Year, and Artist-Songwriter of the Year.

Chris Stapleton is currently on tour, bringing his All-American Road Show to cities across the country. Additionally, he’s in the midst of a stadium run with country music icon George Strait and beloved country group Little Big Town.
