Decorated American singer-songwriter Chris Stapleton is coming to New Zealand for a one-off show in Auckland next year.

The US star – who has won 10 Grammys alongside 15 Country Music Association awards and 10 Academy of Country Music awards – will play at Spark Arena on Friday, March 7.

The tour would include three Australian dates before landing in Aotearoa. Billed as Chris Stapleton’s All-American Roadshow Goes Down Under, it would be Stapleton’s first time touring the region.

“Special guest across all dates is Grammy-nominated blues rocker, Marcus King,” a Live Nation release announcing the tour said.

Kentucky-born Stapleton won two awards at the latest Grammys – Best Country Solo Performance and Best Country Song – both for the single White Horse off his latest album Higher. He also performed the national anthem at the Super Bowl last year.

Stapleton has collaborated with the likes of Adele, Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars, Ed Sheeran, Justin Timberlake, P!nk and Santana.

General public tickets will go on sale via Live Nation on Friday, April 12, at 11am.
