Sturgill Simpson appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Thursday night (Dec. 10th), it was there that Kimmel officially announced the new album. If you missed the performance in real-time, it wasn't much later that Cuttin’ Grass Vol. 2 (The Cowboy Arms Sessions) hit streaming platforms.

Surprise or not, we're just pumped to get our ears a taste of his second bluegrass album in as many month. If you missed it early on in the worldwide pandemic Sturgill and his fans raised around $230,000 for various charities he supports, for which Sturgill promised us two new album in 2020. This, and Vol. 1 was him following through on that promise.

“On Volume 2, we recorded everything I was too afraid to do on Volume 1… It’s hard to deny that this is a much more personal record. I was thinking about my kids, my grandfather, my wife,” Sturgill

On June 1st, the Grammy winner shared a (now deleted) video to Instagram where he introduced fans to several folks as he made his way through a studio, then turned the camera on himself and said, “Get your Zyrtec ready cause we cuttin’ that grass.”

So as Simpson made-good on that promise I will try not to dwell on the fact that had we raised $1 million we'd be getting even more.
