New Music From Chris Stapleton Coming Twice in 2017
Chris Stapleton fans will get not one but two new projects from the singer-songwriter in 2017. Stapleton's previously announced new album is still due out on May 5 -- but he'll also be releasing a second record later in the year.
According to the Tennessean, Stapleton has dubbed the two new discs From A Room: Volume 1 and From A Room: Volume 2. Both sets of music were recorded at RCA Studio A, where a private listening party was held on Wednesday night (April 5).
"We camped out in here …," Stapleton told those assembled at the studio on Wednesday night, "and had a lot of fun recording things.”
From A Room: Volume 1 contains nine songs. Stapleton co-wrote eight of them, with writers such as Kendall Marvel, Craig Wiseman, Shawn Camp and Stapleton's former Steeldrivers bandmate Mike Henderson. Those songs include "Broken Halos," which Stapleton has performed live a few times, and "Second One to Know," which he shared during the 2017 ACM Awards.
The non-Stapleton-penned song on From A Room: Volume 1 is "Last Thing I Needed, First Thing This Morning." The tune was written by Gary P. Nunn and Donna Sioux Farar and originally made popular by Willie Nelson: Nelson released the song in 1982 as the third single from his Always on My Mind album, and it hit No. 2 on Billboard's country charts.
A complete track listing for From A Room: Volume 1 is available below. The record is available for pre-order on iTunes.
In addition to his new albums, Stapleton is also hitting the road in 2017, on his All-American Road Show Tour. The All-American Road Show Tour will feature the Brothers Osborne, Lucie Silvas, Brent Cobb, Anderson East and Margo Price at different shows throughout the trek.
