Stapleton, 39, was previously plagued with vocal issues last year and was forced to postpone a Santa Barbara show after losing his voice. “I had to cancel a show because of playing stuff like this, where there is dust in the air,” he told Rolling Stone at Bonnaroo 2016. “We played two weeks at Coachella and the second weekend took me down.”
