Simpson returns to Letterman

Tuesday, February 4, 2014 – Sturgill Simpson will return to the "Late Show with David Letterman" next Thursday, Feb. 12. Simpson also is one of the first confirmed artists for the 41st season of PBS' "Austin City Limits" program.

The performances come in the midst of Simpson's extensive sold-out North American tour, which includes upcoming dates in New York, D.C., Boston, Philadelphia, Austin, San Francisco and Toronto. Simpson is also confirmed to perform at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, Stagecoach, the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, Governors Ball, Bonnaroo and the Big Barrel Country Music Festival.

The tour celebrates Simpson's well-received "Metamodern Sounds In Country Music.,"

In the past year, produced once again by friend and collaborator Dave Cobb, "Metamodern Sounds In Country Music" was recorded live-to-tape at Nashville's LCS studio over 4 days in late 2013. Simpson said, "Myriad worldly offerings -religion, drugs, and more - all claim to be the omnipotent universal truth, but in my experience, love is the only certainty. That's what this record is about."

CD review - Cuttun' Grass Vol 1 The Butcher Shoppe Sessions Anybody that believes you can have too much of a good thing, obviously hasn't listened to Sturgill Simpson's "Cuttin' Grass" collections, volumes one and two. Volume one contains a plentiful 20 songs, and it's a hoot and a holler – start to finish. Simpson's point of view is complicated. He sounds just as natural singing about God, as he does on "All Around You," as he does while traveling down that highway to hell with "Railroad of Sin. ...
CD review - A Soldier's Guide to Earth If scratching your head about the sounds emanating from Sturgill Simpson's third release, then "It Ain't All Flowers" from his last release, the excellent "Metamodern Sounds in Country Music," ought to serve as a reference point. In a disc filled with traditional country sounds, "Flowers" was about as far away as one could get with the electronics sounding so completely disjointed from everything else on the release. Put it this way - " Islands" ...
CD review - Metamodern Sounds in Country Music The first time you hear Sturgill sing you may feel like you've heard a ghost - the ghost of Waylon Jennings, that is.
