Chris Stapleton is one of country music’s most prolific songwriters with a catalog of over 170 songs that he’s written and co-written. You have Stapleton to thank for Kenny Chesney’s “Never Wanted Nothing More” and Luke Bryan’s “Drink a Beer” but the singer-songwriter doesn’t limit himself to country singers – he’s written songs for Adele, Justin Timberlake, and others.

Stapleton’s current business venture is his All American Road Show Tour. Part of his $12 million fortune stems from his first solo and current headlining concert tour, in which he sings songs from volumes one and two of From A Room, has gone on for two years.
