The title gets its name from the historic facility where Stapleton tracked the new music during the winter of 2016-17. His band in the studio were Cobb on acoustic guitar, wife Morgane Stapleton on harmony vocals, as well as longtime band members J.T. Cure on bass and Derek Mixon on drums. The album also features Mickey Raphael on harmonica, Robby Turner on pedal steel guitar and Mike Webb on keysboards. Several moments on Volume 1 showcase Stapleton as a true bluesman delivering guitar solos and vocal performances that are only authentic to him. Fans of his work with Southern rock's Jompson Brothers will not be surprised by this direction in sound.
