Stapleton broke out as a solo artist in 2015 after a Justin Timberlake collaboration at the CMAs. Their fiery medley of "Tennessee Whiskey
" and Timberlake's "Drink You Away
" made a star of Stapleton, and his Nashville home became a tourist attraction.
"All of a sudden there's a bus with people from four states away showing up in my driveway while I'm trying to play ball with my kids," he recalled to the LA Times
. "I'm not complaining, but I'd spent 37 years not living in that space. I had to get away from the anxiety of that bus rolling up twice a day."
Stapleton and his family moved south of Nashville on a ranch in Franklin, Tennessee, far removed from a tourist bus stop.
