Released in May on Mercury Records Nashville, Traveller initially debuted at #2 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart with over 27,000 albums sold making it the best-selling first week by a debut country artist in 2015. The album also received immediate and extensive critical acclaim and landed him bookings on “Late Show With David Letterman,” “The View,” “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” and “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” among others.
Following a historic turn on the CMA Awards—where Stapleton became the first artist to ever win Album of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year and New Artist of the Year in the same yearTraveller became the first album in history to re-enter the Billboard 200 all-genre album chart at #1, where it stayed for two straight weeks. Stapleton also performed on the live awards show with superstar and friend Justin Timberlake, which Entertainment Weekly called, “an unapologetic display of abnormal levels of talent.”
