Country fans rejoiced earlier this month when Chris Stapleton released the much anticipated second album, From A Room: Volume 1, named after the famous RCA Studio A in Nashville where the album was recorded. This is the second collaboration between Stapleton and Dave Cobb, who has produced for Sturgill Simpson, Shooter Jennings, and Jason Isbell. The first - 2015's Traveller - won the Country Music Association Awards and the Academy of Country Music Awards for Album of the Year and Male Vocalist of the Year, and the Grammy Award for Best Country Album and Best Country Solo Performance.
Paintsville, Kentucky native Chris Stapleton made a name for himself in the world of country music long before stepping into the spotlight. More than 150 of his songs have been recorded by fellow artists, including 6 number one singles recorded by country music superstars Kenny Chesney, George Strait, and Darius Rucker.
