5. Chris Stapleton – ‘Starting Over’
A Chris Stapleton record is always an event and ‘Starting Over’ is no exception. It’s classic Stapleton – big vocals, bigger guitars and plenty of soul. The anthemic ‘Cold’ is one of those tracks that stops you dead while ‘Maggie’s Song’, a loving ode to a canine companion will have you wiping tears away from your ears. This is Stapleton’s boldest work yet and it’s yet another reason why he’s quickly being considered a legend.
