Chris Stapleton Announces ‘From A Room: Volume 2,’ Following His Best-Selling Albums Of 2017

As Chris Stapleton’s All-American Road Show continues to stampede across the country, the Grammy, CMA and ACM Award-winning musician is prepping the second volume part to his sophomore Mercury Records Nashville project.

From A Room: Volume 2 will be released Dec. 1 and is now available to pre-order digitally and with exclusive limited-edition bundles.

The forthcoming album takes its name from Nashville’s historic RCA Studio A (the capital “A” in “From A Room”) where it was recorded over the last year, again with producer/guitarist Dave Cobb. Wife, Morgane Stapleton is naturally featured on harmony vocals alongside longtime band-members J.T. Cure (bass) and Derek Mixon (drums).

In addition to seven songs co-written by Stapleton, the album features versions of Kevin Welch’s “Millionaire” and the Homer Banks/Lester Snell-penned song made famous by Pops Staples, “Friendship.” Select co-writers featured on the project include Kendell Marvel, Brice Long, Matt Fleener, Mike Henderson, Jaron Boyer, Darrell Hayes and Jameson Clark.

Stapleton’s Volume one is now Gold-certified after debuting at No. 1, remaining the best-selling country album of 2017. His 2015 double-Platinum solo debut, Traveller, is currently the No. 2 best-selling country album of the year. Stapleton is the CMA’s reigning Male Vocalist of the Year and is nominated this year in the same category along with Entertainer of the Year and Album of the Year (From A Room: Volume 1).

In addition to the mostly sold-out All-American Road Show dates, Stapleton will perform as part of the All In For The Gambler: Kenny Rogers Farewell Concert on October 25 in Nashville and will join fellow country performers for the Country Rising benefit concert on November 12 in Nashville. Stapleton will also make his debut on PBS’ legendary Austin City Limits program later this month with the taping streamed live via ACL’s YouTube channel on October 23 at 8 p.m. CT with the broadcast version airing early next year.
