Chris Stapleton has truly raised the bar for today's crowded country genre, rising to the top with his incredible vocal and instrumental abilities. Chris arrived on the scene with The Steeldrivers in 2007. Stapleton recorded two albums with the Steeldrivers before exiting to focus on his family. By 2015, he released Traveller, his first solo effort, From A Room Vol. 1 followed in May of 2017, and by December Stapleton released From A Room Vol. 2, which we discussed in Episode 2 of our PODCAST, all recorded in the infamous RCA Studio A with mastermind producer Dave Cobb.
So Why Did We Bundle These?
Because many know about Chris Stapleton's 3 solo projects and have even seen Chris and Justin Timblerlake (an unlikely pair) duets, however Stapleton's real start began with the Steeldrivers, and no collection is complete without it.

The Adele Connection
The SteelDrivers' critically and commercially successful 2008 self-titled debut firmly established the Nashville five-piece as a force to be reckoned with. With singer-songwriter Chris Stapleton at the helm -who has gone on to be a star in his own right- The SteelDrivers has been praised for its contemporary mix of blues, Americana and country. The album peaked at #57 on the Billboard Country Albums chart, and garnered a GRAMMYå¨ nomination for Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals for 'Blue Side of the Mountain.' The SteelDrivers also found a fan in singer Adele, who covered the song 'If It Hadn't Been For Love' on her 2010 album 21.
