Performer Notes
  • Personnel: Chris Stapleton (vocals, guitar); Tammy Rogers (vocals, fiddle); Mike Fleming (vocals).
  • Audio Mixer: Luke Wooten.
  • Liner Note Authors: Jon Weisberger; Tim O'Brien.
  • Recording information: Sound Emporium - Studio A.
  • Author: Buddy Miller.
  • Photographer: David McClister.
  • A fairly obvious recipe on paper is rendered grippingly powerful by singer-guitarist Chris Stapleton's baritone yowl and a band of fleet-fingered bluegrass pros (banjoist Richard Bailey, bassist/vocalist Mike Fleming, mandolinist/vocalist Mike Henderson, and fiddler/vocalist Tammy Rogers).

Fans took note--this record logged very impressive digital sales and snared both Grammy and International Bluegrass Music Association awards.
