Chris Stapleton Shares What He Did in 2020

In a November 2020 interview with GQ, Chris Stapleton opened up about what he did during the COVID-19 lockdowns.

“I started riding a bike,” the country superstar states. “I’m 42-years-old and decided it’s a good idea to start riding a mountain bike. It’s been good – just a kind of release. In no way am I going to switch careers or anything.”

Chris Stapleton also reveals how the lockdowns affected his work and creative process. “I haven’t necessarily been as protective and aggressive as a lot of my counterparts in trying to figure out new ways to work,” Stapleton admits. He also says that it is good to be still and he has a far greater appreciation for what he has to do for a living. 

“I miss it deeply. I’m sure you’ve heard people bi—ing about the road or being road weary. I’d give anything to be that tired. And I was never one to really b— about it,” Chris Stapleton says. He then shares that he hopes everyone comes out on the other side of this with a deeper appreciation for some of the freedom that everyone enjoyed in the past. 

Chris Stapleton then notes that the time off has been sort of welcomed in some sense.

“I’ve gotten to spend more time with my children. My life has become very weighted in their direction, as it should be at all the time. This time certainly has point out some of your shortcomings as a parent.”

Chris goes on to add that he has been able to work on being a parent as well as husband and friend during the COVID-19 lockdowns. He adds, “So that’s very worthwhile. Not a wasted year, in any way, in that sense.”

In regards to remaining still and not traveling while he writes music, Chris concludes, “I can’t be moving. I can’t do a whole lot of writing on the road. Stillness in that way is good for me, in a creative sense.”
