Before Chris Stapleton exploded onto the country scene, he had made a name for himself as the frontman of two bands. The SteelDrivers were a bluegrass band Stapleton fronted from 2008-2010. But, not as many know about his rock band, The Jompson Brothers.......

The Jompson Brothers formed around 2007 in Nashville, and played Southern Rock. The four-piece band toured all around the South from 2010 to 2013

They only released one studio album, 2010’s The Jompson Brothers.

Of course, Stapleton’s solo success has since sidelined The Jompson Brothers....but that’s not to say The band broke up, either.

The story is that the band is simply on a break during Chris Stapleton’s tour in support of his solo record. It would be interesting to see The Jompson Brothers emerge again at some point. They are sure to have more fans who have heard of them after Stapleton’s solo success.

Let's reach back to a live performance of the Jompson Brothers back in 2012. Check it out in the above video!
