The May 5 release of Chris Stapleton’s highly anticipated sophomore solo album, From A Room: Volume 1, is one week away.
After sharing his new tune, “Broken Halos,” earlier this month, Chris is giving fans their second taste of what’s to come on the album by releasing “Second One to Know,” which was co-penned by Chris and Mike Henderson.
“I’m real proud of this record,” Chris said on April 5 during an album listening party for industry insiders. “We made it right here in [RCA Studio A] like the last one [Traveller]. We camped out in here . . . and had a lot of fun recording things.”
The album takes its name from Music City’s iconic RCA Studio A, where it was recorded during the winter of 2016-17. Dave Cobb, who produced Chris’ debut solo album, once again helmed Volume 1, which features eight original songs as well as a rendition of “Last Thing I Needed, First Thing This Morning,” written by Gary P. Nunn and Donna Sioux Farar and made famous by Willie Nelson.
