Chris Stapleton is back at it after a hand injury caused him to postpone multiple shows a few weeks ago! Now he is gearing up to open for Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers on Thursday (6/29) at Wrigley Field in Chicago and also at Summer Fest in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on July 5. As you can believe. Chris is pretty excited. He say’s “I’m a huge Tom Petty fan, and he’s one of my all-time favorites and the Wildflowers album, in particular, is possibly my favorite record of all-time. This is something his booking agents and my guys have been working on for a time, or so they told me. And  I’ just like, ‘Okay, yeah, sure I’m gonna go play with Tom Petty. That sounds great. Two thumbs up.’ And they came up with to play Wrigley and the Summerfest up in Milwaukee, and why wouldn’t we do that? [laughs] I buy tickets to Tom Petty, so I’d certainly be more than happy to be on a bill with him.”
