2015 CMA Album of the Year Nominees: Inside the Studio

Watch interviews with artists and producers behind the nominated LPs in this year's toughest CMA category

Chris Stapleton, 'Traveller'

Producers: Dave Cobb, Chris Stapleton

Standout Tracks: "Daddy Doesn't Pray Anymore," "Traveller," "Tennessee Whiskey"

The Magic: "It was really like two buddies cutting up in the studio the whole time. I can't call it 'work,'" says Cobb. "The record is live. It's not a polished record; it's not supposed to be. Every time [Stapleton] opens his mouth, you get the truth. There's nothing edited, it's not made with a computer. . . it's made with four or five musicians in a room."
