Chris Stapleton Reveals New Song ‘Millionaire’ [Listen]
Chris Stapleton just shared a first listen of a song from his next studio album. The slow, grateful love song "Millionaire" will be included on From A Room: Volume 2.
The album hits stores and digital retailers on Dec. 1 and is the follow-up to one of the most successful albums of 2017, From A Room: Volume 1. "Broken Halo" is the current radio single from that album — it's not clear if "Millionaire" will be going for radio airplay or not.
"Millionaire" is technically a cover of a song singer and songwriter Kevin Welch released in 2001. The Austin, Texas-based musician's version is sonically similar to Stapleton's slow, soulful interpretation. Stapleton's voice is a little deeper and smoother than Welch's.

"I got a woman with eyes that shine / Down deep, as a diamond mine / She's my treasure so very rare / She makes me a millionaire," Stapleton sings at the chorus.
This is the second studio album of 2017 for Stapleton. He's also headlined the All-American Road Show Tour and made time to pick up a CMT Artist of the Year honor. On Nov. 8 he's one of five men nominated for the Entertainer of the Year award at the 2017 CMA Awards. From A Room: Volume 2 features nine songs, seven written by Stapleton.
