He is country, but he is more than that. Sturgill Simpson's music has the unique ability to appeal to all music lovers. Play one of his songs for that friend of yours that "absolutely hates" country. They'll like it.

And he's making the late night television rounds. He's already performed on Letterman and Conan, well now he can add Fallon to the growing list. You're up next, Kimmel!

I've gotta say this, I bought tickets for his sold out November show in Dallas, the day they went on sale, and I have been counting down the minutes to it since. I should put that number here, the remaining minutes, but I didn't mean it literally... About two weeks!

Metamodern Sounds in Country Music is absolutely the best album I've ever listened to.
