When Chris Stapleton first came onto the scene, his earthy, unaffected vocal style and no-frills blend of outlaw country and Southern soul felt like a balm for the ills of the bro-country that was beginning to go out of style. His 2015 debut, Traveller, was heralded by some as a return to real country music, or at least to a more traditional sound than what many of his peers were making. This set high expectations for his follow-up, and the most refreshing thing about From A Room: Volume 1which was recorded at Nashville's historic RCA Studio Ais how he mostly sidesteps them. There are no grand statements here, and no self-conscious move to ratify the accolades that have come Stapleton's way. Instead, the album finds him doing what he does best: writing and singing country and roots music without any hint of pretension. The only real surprise here is the album's brevity; even with a second volume on the way, nine tracks feels more focused and condensed than the 14 songs on his debut. Contained within those nine tracks is a surprising amount of variety, though, with songs that take on various forms and emotions: Either Way is a slow-burning country ballad that reaches intense emotional highs, while Them Stems is a rattling blues number about smoking weedabout as close as Stapleton gets to something lightweight or humorous.
