Chris Stapleton premieres 'Broken Halos,' first track from 'From a Room: Volume 1'

The first track from Americana singer-songwriter Chris Stapleton’s widely anticipated sophomore album, “From a Room: Volume 1,” surfaces today with the premiere of “Broken Halos.”

Stapleton wrote the song with Mike Henderson, his former bandmate in the avant-bluegrass band the SteelDrivers, and it is the lead-off track on the album, which will be released May 5.

“Broken Halos” is a mid-tempo country rock number in which Stapleton meditates on the wounds people suffer and the road toward healing that they travel.
