Are we in a golden age of country music? Probably not. We can still listen to the best we’ve got though, and Stapleton is up there. The bearded guru of grasslands has one hell of a voice, and it’s not the over-exaggerated, pandering twang you hear from most pop-country shmucks. He’s got critical acclaim out the wazoo and the soulful magic to back it up. 2677 Forty Mile Road in Wheatland, chrisstapleton.com.
