Chris Stapleton Finally Releases Higher, His Fifth Studio Album

The latest project from Chris Stapleton has finally arrived. On Friday (November 10), Stapleton dropped his highly anticipated fifth studio album, Higher.

Higher is Stapleton’s first album since 2020’s Starting Over. Starting Over won Album of the Year at both the CMA and ACM Awards in 2021. It also won the Grammy Award for Best Country Album in 2022.

Now, Stapleton has the potential to replicate that success with Higher.
