Chris Stapleton Releases ‘Starting Over’ Album
Country musician Chris Stapleton released a new album entitled Starting Over via Mercury Records Nashville. Stapleton’s 14-track LP comes three years after Chris issued the two-volume From A Room records in 2017.
Starting Over was mostly recorded at the historic RCA Studio A in Nashville, with additional work completed at Muscle Shoals Sound and Compass Sound Studio. Chris tapped trusted collaborator Dave Cobb to both produce and play guitar on his new album.
Chris Stapleton is backed by the rhythm section of bassist J.T. Cure and drummer Derek Mixon on Starting Over, which also features vocals and tambourine from Morgane Stapleton, his wife. A number of special guests contributed to the record, including Heartbreakers Mike Campbell and Benmont Tench as well as pedal steel wiz Paul Franklin and the All Voices Choir.
Stapleton finished Starting Over late in February just before the pandemic led to shutdowns. “This record has a lot of depth in it,” Chris said to The Tennessean in regards to the new LP. “It has a lot of variance in tone and music. It feels a little a bit like not a complete departure, but a little different lane to some of the things we’ve done. But it still very much sounds like the things that we do.”
