Stapleton got his start in a band that covered the songs of 1990s

country star Travis Tritt.

“We played bluegrass and I really got heavy into it. We’d sit around and pick and have a good time every night. That’s where the discovery of that kind of music came from. I didn’t really grow up with that kind of music.”

Stapleton was discovering the music that would take him out of the slums and into the spotlight.
