Chris Stapleton Back on Stage After Injury

Chris Stapleton came back last June 22 and performed in his first concert after his untimely injury to his right index finger. He announced this as per his Instagram post saying captioning, “On my way to Tulsa where this will come OFF & it will be ON!” This came along with a picture showing his finger with a splint.

Among the canceled shows included his CMA Music Festival appearance on June 11th in Nashville and eight concert shows for his All-American Road Show Tour. These shows were highly anticipated this summer. So having announced of his comeback is definitely an exciting news for all his fans.

Chris Stapleton’s Injury

Stapleton never really shared how he got his injury but his right index finger has a broken bone and a detached tendon. He is still wearing a brace that covers his finger and part of his palm. “After seeing a specialist, I have some information to share. I’m on the road to recovery from a broken bone & a detached tendon in my right index finger,” he wrote in an online post. “The doctor is hopeful that with some physical therapy I will be playing guitar again soon.”

Even if he could just perform standing onstage and singing, that will not be a performance at all without him playing his guitar. A total performance should include his guitar playing skills, especially in a live show. Stapleton is his band’s only guitarist. His distinctive style heavily counts on choppy, rhythmic chords, would be hard to duplicate. His solos, meanwhile seem quite simple and spontaneous. To him, creativeness is crucial.

The acts of the Brothers Osborne and Lucie Silvas were affected too and like him, they got some time off. “We got the weekend off, which allowed us to head to Florida for our nephew’s graduation,” says John Osborne, who is married to the buzzed-about British singer-songwriter Silvas. Upon hearing the news of Stapleton’s injury, the BROS tweeted “Get better soon, brother. We’ll lend you an index finger if you need it.” Anderson East and Brent Cobb were also set to play the affected shows.

Brothers Osborne helped fill Stapleton’s void on the main stage of CMA Music Festival last June 11. Stapleton was one of the most anticipated performers of CMA Music Festival in Nashville, scheduled to play Nissan Stadium’s massive stage. That’s since been canceled: Brothers Osborne, who’ve been opening Stapleton’s All-American Road Show, take his 9:30 to 10:00 p.m. slot.

The All-American Road Show resumed June 22nd

As of right now, Stapleton returns to the road with a concert at the BOK Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Anderson East and Brent Cobb are set to open.
