Following the release of From A Room: Volume 1 in May 2017, Chris Stapleton announced that Volume 2 will be released on Dec. 1.
Taking its name from Nashville’s historic RCA Studio A—where it was recorded in 2016 with producer Dave Cobb—Volume 2 will feature nine songs, including seven co-penned by Chris. The two songs that Chris did not co-write include Kevin Welch’s “Millionaire” and the Homer Banks/Lester Snell-penned song, “Friendship,” which was made famous by Pops Staples.
From A Room: Volume 1 debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Country Albums chart and No. 2 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart. It remains the best-selling country album of 2017.
