Chris Stapleton’s From A Room: Volume 1 debuted this week at #1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart and #2 on the Billboard Top 200 chart with over 218,000 first-week sales. The album also landed at #1 on the Billboard Top Album Sales chart with 202,000 in pure album units. This is the strongest sales week by a country artist since Luke Bryan’s Kill The Lights in 2015 and, with its 13.5 million audio on-demand streams, is the highest streaming debut for a country artist to date.
From A Room: Volume 1 is the first new music from Stapleton since 2015’s breakthrough double Platinum solo debut Traveller and will be followed by From A Room: Volume 2—coming later this year.
In celebration of the release, Stapleton recently joined legendary journalist and talk show host Charlie Rose for a special interview on the PBS program. The visit also included a performance of Stapleton’s new single, “Either Way.” Watch the full interview here and performance here. Additionally last week, Stapleton made his debut on “The Howard Stern Show” performing “Broken Halos” and returned to “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” performing “I Was Wrong.” While at “The Tonight Show,” Stapleton also joined Fallon and fellow guest Kevin Bacon for the latest installment of “First Drafts of Rock.” Watch their rendition of ZZ Top’s “Legs.”
