Sturgill Simpson

Since breaking through in 2014 with his Grammy-nominated Metamodern Sounds in Country Music album, Sturgill Simpson has established himself as one of the most daring and most acclaimed artists of our time. His music stretches across genres and styles, from the psychedelic soul of 2016’s A Sailor’s Guide To Earth (Grammy-nominated for Album of the Year and winner for Best Country Album) to the fuzzed-out rock attack of Sound & Fury in 2019, which was nominated for Best Rock Album at the 2021 Grammys.

In October of 2020, Simpson returned to the music of his native Kentucky with his first bluegrass project, Cuttin’ Grass Vol. 1—The Butcher Shoppe Sessions. The album, which he calls “a mixtape for the fans,” was dreamed up while he was recovering at home after being hospitalized with coronavirus, and sees him reimagining songs from across his catalogue backed by some of Nashville’s finest acoustic virtuosos. He released Cuttin’ Grass Vol. 2—The Cowboy Arms Sessions in December, which features “Hobo Cartoon,” co-written with Merle Haggard.

Simpson debuted in 2013 with his independent release High Top Mountain. Since then, he has challenged musical expectations—from recording with Kesha to touring with Guns n’ Roses—and branched out into the world of film and television. After making his acting debut in the CBS All Access series $1, he has appeared in several movies, including Jim Jarmusch’s The Dead Don’t Die (for which he also wrote and performed the theme song), and had a pivotal role in the award-winning Queen & Slim.

The Sound & Fury album was accompanied by a groundbreaking anime film (an interest he picked up during his years in the Navy) on Netflix. Simpson also remains committed to philanthropy, supporting such non-profit organizations as the Special Forces Foundation, Equity Alliance, and MusiCares.
