Chris Stapleton on His SiriusXM Station

Stapleton spoke about the upcoming endeavor in a statement. “Chris Stapleton Radio gives people another way to connect with our music—where me and the rest of the guys in the band and Morgane are coming from,” he shared. “What our influences are. Knowing that when people come to watch a show, what they’re hearing is informed by the things that are on this channel. That’s probably the ultimate reason that I want to do this,” he added. “We’re honored to bring Chris Stapleton Radio to SiriusXM.”

Scott Greenstein, SiriusXM’s president and chief content officer also spoke about the new station in the press materials. “Chris Stapleton is one of country music’s most prolific singer-songwriters today, and we are thrilled to collaborate with him on his own year-round SiriusXM channel,” he shared. “We are truly excited to have Chris bring his own channel to life, sharing with our listeners not only his catalog of music but his insights and the music and artists that he loves and is inspired by,” he added.
