CONCERT REVIEW: Chris Stapleton and his All American Roadshow pack Spokane Arena for a winning night of country

If Chris Stapleton is the future of country music, it sounds a whole lot like the best moments of the genre's past, and for that we can all be thankful. The fact that an artist like Stapleton can fill the Spokane Arena is heartening to people, myself included, frustrated that much of the most popular country music on the radio and America's concert stages seems to be all beaches, beers and bros. In Stapleton, we actually have a massively popular act who is also a kickass songwriter and live performer who doesn't need a lot of bells and whistles to deliver a memorable show.

Bummer alert for fans of live music and fine whiskey: The Observatory is apparently closing its doors after a final two shows this weekend. Tyson Sicilia, one of the Howard Street spot's four co-owners, posted on his personal Facebook that the Observatory is closing "due to circumstances beyond my control," and he sang the praises of the bar's staff and customers.

Marty Stuart is the not-so-secret weapon of Chris Stapleton's All American Road Show
