Chris Stapleton’s From A Room: Volume 2 debuts this week at #1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart and #2 on the Billboard 200 chart. This is Stapleton’s second album to debut atop the Country Albums chart this year. Stapleton’s previous two solo albums—From A Room: Volume 1 and Traveller—are #3 and #4 respectively on this week’s Country Albums chart.

Out now on Mercury Records Nashville (purchase digitally and with exclusive limited-edition bundles), Volume 2 continues to receive overwhelming critical acclaim—NPR Music praises, “…folding these songs into his repertoire lends greater emotional weight to his entire body of work…It’s no wonder so many fans have come to count him as a musical hero,” while Rolling Stone asserts, “The songs feel like unearthed classics…Stapleton is a master who’s hit his stride, and it’s something to behold.”

In celebration of the release, Stapleton performed the album’s first track, “Millionaire,” last week on the “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” and “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” He also performed a web exclusive version of “Nobody’s Lonely Tonight” on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” and joined guest host Chris Pratt for a special duet and interview. Moreover, Stapleton recently joined Joe Rogan for an extended interview as part of the “Joe Rogan Experience” podcast.

The release of From A Room: Volume 2 follows the May 5 release of From A Room: Volume 1, which remains the #1 best-selling country album of 2017 (Stapleton’s 2015 double-platinum solo debut, Traveller, is currently the #2 best-selling country album of the year). Released to overwhelming acclaim, Rolling Stone recently named Volume 1 one of their “50 Best Albums of 2017” declaring, “…the supremely talented singer doesn’t rest on old laurels. These performances crackle and pop with new energy.” Additionally, Stapleton recently won Album of the Year (From A Room: Volume 1) and Male Vocalist of the Year at The 51st Annual CMA Awards and is nominated for three awards at the 60th GRAMMY Awards—Best Country Album (From A Room: Volume 1), Best Country Song (“Broken Halos”) and Best Country Solo Performance (“Either Way”).

Both Volume 1 and Volume 2 take their name from Nashville’s historic RCA Studio A (the capital “A” in “From A Room”) where they were recorded with Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb. Along with Stapleton on vocals and guitar and Cobb on acoustic guitar, the album features Morgane Stapleton on harmony vocals as well as longtime band-members J.T. Cure on bass and Derek Mixon on drums. See below for complete track list.
