CHRIS STAPLETON came up big with four Grammy nominations on the strength of his song “Traveller” . . . and album of the same name. But if it were up to him, you’d listen to every single song on that record. He says, quote, “I didn’t grow up in an age where we bought singles, or one piece of an album. I grew up on albums. I hope people get [my] whole album and take the time to listen to it . . . [because] music is meant to be enjoyed in that way.
“And I hope folks can find it in their hearts to do that with this record because it’s how it was meant to be used. And if they come watch me play some of [it] live that would be great.”
