Born in Kentucky and based out of Nashville, Tenn., singer-songwriter Sturgill Simpson first made a name for himself among fans of independent country music as the frontman of the high-energy band Sunday Valley.

By the end of the year, he was opening for Dwight Yoakam in front of a sold-out audience in Mission, Texas.

    Unbelievable indeed. A plethora of sounds and influences, rooted in strong musicianship and respect for the genre. I l-o-v-e it.

    New album is unbelievable. WTF did I just hear? I was taken aback by the strong soul vibe that runs through this album. No wonder, The Dap-Kings played on this album!

    Reminds me a little of ol Waylon. His music remembers REAL country, yet he's not afraid to use newer sounds and techniques in a way that actually complements and works. The way to save country is to remember its past and the greats that made it.

    They're calling him the savior of country music, but the impact of his greatness is much further reaching than one ailing genre. This is simply and absolutely fantastic music.

    Had never listened to this guy before, saw him tonight with Old Crow Medicine show, he was fantastic! His guitarist is great, and it's interesting that he's from Estonia, I'd never have thought a country guitarist would be from there.
