Chris Stapleton is stellar as he makes his mark at Comerica Park

There’s no doubting the ample musical gifts built into Chris Stapleton – the songwriting, the singing, the guitar work, the stylistic versatility. But there’s also a purity of spirit coursing through his work, and it helped the country A-lister soar Friday night at Comerica Park.

On paper, Stapleton isn’t the conventional idea of ​​a stadium headliner. The bearded musician is a static figure at his center-stage spot, not to be bothered with any high-flying showmanship or production frills. By the standards of modern country stardom, he’s not even armed with some vast arsenal of radio hits.

But the Kentucky native nevertheless waged a commanding performance at the Detroit Tigers’ ballpark, playing for a packed and rapt crowd that appeared to number about 30,000 in the first Michigan stadium show of his career.
