Review: Chris Stapleton, One of Country’s Hottest Names, Makes It a Double
Uncategorized

Like its predecessor from earlier this year, volume two of Chris Stapleton’s From a Room is a brew of country, folk, blues and Southern rock and soul, recorded at Nashville’s vintage RCA Studio A with producer Dave Cobb.

Bono quickly straps on his bravado in “Lights of Home”: “One more push and I’ll...
