Hijinks Ensue as Chris Stapleton Performs “Broken Halo” & Talks New Album With Howard Stern [Watch]

Chris Stapleton was a guest on The Howard Stern Show on SiriusXM yesterday (May 9) to talk about his new album, From A Room: Volume 1, which dropped on May 5. As expected, hijinks ensued from the “King of All Media” and co-host Robin Quivers.

Here’s my favorite excerpt from the interview (which has been slightly edited for flow).

Howard: “The new album is called From A Room. And the reason it’s A Room, which is kind of catchy, you recorded this in the A Room. The studio was called A Room.”

Chris: “Yeah, RCA Studio A . . . a lot of great Dolly Parton tracks were made there, Waylon Jennings, Elvis recorded in there. There’s a lot of history in that room.”

Howard: “Is that necessary? Like, does that kinda get you off that you know, like, Elvis recorded there and Dolly Parton?”

Chris: “I don’t know if it gets me off, but it certainly inspires me . . . any place that has history like that . . . ”

Howard: “I put out an album years ago, but I recorded it at the A-Hole Room. The thing was not a hit, I’ll tell ya that.”

Robin: “It had a sound . . . and a smell.”

Listen to the full audio clip below.

Chris also performed his new tune, “Broken Halo,” which is featured on the new album.

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
