"With a sharp mind to match that Hag burr of a voice, Simpson not only owns the best name in current country music but comprehends the genre as a vehicle for big, unwieldy ideas about human consciousness and the nature of life."
The Nashville scene has long been plagued with the radio-friendly misogyny of Bro Country. Enter the progressive Country stylings of Sturgill Simpson, an independent singer songwriter that draws comparisons with Waylon Jennings and the Country Outlaws, those who sought authenticity in their craft. Catch the Alt-Country aficionado as he heads out on tour, coming to Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO, Closed September 25, 2017
With a penchant for searching, introspective lyrics that lie deeper than beers, cars and women, Sturgill isn't afraid to explore the complexities of humanity and the nature of life. His deep Country-Gentleman-voice calls to mind a golden era of Country, heck even his name calls to mind the glories of another time. Yet he has his feet firmly planted in the future and it's this pioneering spirit that makes him an intriguing artist to watch.
Performance date: 25 September 2017
