Stapleton delivered the news to fans on October 13th during the first of two sold-out shows at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena, the stage that CMT says "cemented his status as one of music's greatest talents to emerge from the current decade." The companion album, From A Room: Volume 1, was released earlier this year and debuted #1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart and #2 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. The album has been nominated for Album of the Year at the 51st Annual CMA Awards.
Recorded at Nashville's RCA Studio A, which the upcoming album takes its name from, the album, produced by Dave Cobb, will feature Stapleton on vocals, Cobb on acoustic guitar, Morgane Stapleton on harmony vocals, J.T. Cure on bass, and Derek Mixon on drums. The track list will include nine songs, including versions of Kevin Welch's "Millionaire" and Homer Banks and Lester Snell's "Friendship."
