Chris Stapleton closes weekend in fashion

September 26, 2022

Nothing sounds fairly like Chris Stapleton at sundown.

Listening to “Beginning Over” — his stressed and road-traveled tune about new beginnings — because the day slowly surrenders to a breezy fall night time?

Sure, please.

On Sunday, Stapleton closed down the 2022 version of Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Pageant with a night set that drew sunburnt households, 20-something beer-drinkers holding tight to the final hours of the weekend — and everybody in-between. They gathered inside The Park at Harlinsdale Farm in Franklin for the primary Pilgrimage in years not shadowed by rainout restoration of COVID-19 situations.

And for onlookers standing shoulder-to-shoulder close to the stage or sitting in foldable chairs on the sprawling pageant garden, Stapleton placed on a present worthy of shutting down one other 12 months at Pilgrimage.

“I do know everyone’s most likely gotta work tomorrow,” Stapleton mentioned early within the present, “however that does not imply we will not have a very good time tonight.”

The Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter belted his model of bearded, big-voiced country-rock for the two-hour present. He and the band — together with harmonica participant Mickey Raphael (a longtime member of Willie Nelson’s band), lap metal guitarist Paul Franklin (a go-to Nashville session participant) and bedrock vocalist-wife Morganne Stapleton — ripped by way of a can’t-miss listing of his rising catalog: the Southern rock curler “Arkansas,” daring ballad “Chilly,” fan-favorite “Parachute” and tender-hearted “Millionaire,” to call just a few.
