Sturgill Simpson

Formerly the leader of Sunday Valley, an energetic roots outfit that made some waves in the early years of the new millennium, Sturgill Simpson gained greater renown as a solo artist, thanks in large part to his muscular 2013 solo debut High Top Mountain. An outlaw country record in form and feel -- its debt to Waylon Jennings clear and unashamed -- High Top Mountain became a word-of-mouth hit in 2013, thereby establishing Simpson's country credentials and opening the door to a wider future.

A native of Jackson, Kentucky raised near Lexington, Simpson has deep southern roots, but he moved out west once he reached his late teens. In 2004, he formed Sunday Valley, receiving a big break when they played Portland, Oregon's Pickathon Festival in 2011. Sturgill went solo in 2012, beginning work on the album that became High Top Mountain, which appeared the following year. After extensive touring, Simpson settled down in studio to concentrate on his next recording. He experimented with stretching the boundaries of his chosen genre, digging deep into topics like physics and evolution, as evidenced by his pre-release single "Turtles (All the Way Down)." The Dave Cobb-produced album, Metamodern Sounds in Country Music, appeared in May of 2014 and peaked in the Top Ten on all of the country charts. The album was nominated for a Grammy Award for best country album. Simpson won Best Emerging Artist at that year's Americana Music Awards, and in 2015 was named Artist of the Year by the same foundation.

In March of 2016, he released "Brace for Impact (Live a Little)," as the first single from the full-length A Sailor's Guide to Earth. The self-produced album was released in April and featured a guest appearance from the Dap-Kings. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Keep it up Sturgil! Seen him three times and the last one was with Merl and Kris... He is the real deal. Like others have said, a breath of fresh true country. While Im a bigger fan of HiTM and Metamodern they are all great. He said somewhere he will do 5 albums but I am hoping for more.

@ estimating39 9 he also said it's also about physics, the relevance of time, and a higher power.

Turtle's is about drugs...stur g i l said so himself. People read way to much into lyrics sometimes, reaching for a meaning that was never really intended. This guy is awesome.

Sturgill keep it up brother. Love the tunes. Hate that boy band pop crap that's blown up in the past 5 years. It's garbage and has obviously been confused with true country by these confused adolescents.
COME TO MACON GA! WE NEED A DOSE.

TIckets for Eugene Oregon just purchased. I'm such a fan and cannot wait until more music is released by Sturgill. Such a good sound that seems to have been lost in country music. Keep it coming.

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you dint post this you will be injured ( you won't die) in two days. Now you started reading this won't stop. Post this on at least five other stations/son g s in the next 143 minutes. When you're done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters. This is so scary this actually works

Merle and Willie already stated that he's a legend! This is great to know someone is writing and singing outlaw and great country music still. BEST show I ever saw in Austin April 2nd! He's been on Conan and David letterman. He's getting more popular and word of mouth is spreading quick. People who appreciate "true" country can see through the pop Nashville trend and understand what Sturgill represents and support him.
