so incredibly bummed about the recent show cancellations. I hate that he & the band are sick, but to cancel the show and then announce the "make up" show is at a venue that is 10x the originals size is not cool IMO.  Not to mention, he's listed as the opener for OCMS at that date. 

It just seems like they took advantage of a bad situation to rebook at larger venues for more $$$.  I know a band's got a right to make a buck, doesn't mean I can't be bummed about missing them play a 350 seat venue.


well, looks like I will get to see Sturgill in Norfolk this year.  So stoked, it's not a tiny venue like the Broadberry but its a decent one that is about 1500.

Have some friends who flew out to see him and the Avetts at Red Rocks tonight.

Gotta say that Metamodern record is timeless. Been listening to again for the past couple of days and wow.
The fact that my heart's beating is all the proof you need.

In an interview, Dave Cobb said Stu produced this solo. 

Love the organ sound he added on the last tour. Sounds great on this track.

Love that he's stressing this is an full album and not allowing them to stream individual streams.

He's talked about writing this album for his son and as a new dad myself, the start of this album hit me right in the feels.

"hello my son, welcome to Earth. You may not be my last but you'll always be first. I wish I'd done this 10 years ago. But how could I know that the answer was so easy."

I love it a lot. There's a sweetness to this record that's really touching, but I love that it ends on a firebrand-y note.

Hell yea!
As a father... "Welcome to Earth" hits home.
Great song regardless. But I have three sons, and this song is on another level!

Vinyl Me Please had this album in the member store this month.  I snatched it up.  I think I like the sound on this new release better than his last.  Good stuff.

Saw them last night and goddamn, what a band. The addition of horns, while on paper sounds kinda weird for a country band, takes them to an entirely new level. These guys fuckin' JAM! I saw the pared-down lineup last summer and thought it was the most psychedelic country I've ever heard. After last night's show, I can NOW say they are the most supremely soulful psychedelic country band I've ever seen. Sturgill is so fuckin' authentic. Makes a lot of other "country" or "soul" acts look like a goddamn joke. What a show.

heck yea, saw him on that last tour as well when he had the keys and organ player. Seeing him again next month in C-ville. Can't wait.

Did they play the album straight through?

Keeping with Sturgill's wholly unique concert presence, he did all his 'hits' first and then ENDED the show with a complete performance of the new album. No encore. Baddddddass.

ummm, Stu and the band killed it on SNL:

I taped it and watched it the following day and WOW..... he destroyed that place, I need to see him next time he tours. Oh how I wish he was at OBH III (not that I'm complaining about the current lineup)

So Sturgill continues to be the greatest thing in Nashville. He posted up outside the CMAs outside last night and streamed it, answered questions and played a few songs.

You can catch the stream here on his FB live https://www.facebook.com/sturgillsimpsonmusic/

Some hilarious moments like when he said Joe Rogan has that "mad scientist Cali weed", says he's listening to ELO and Run the Jewels. Also sounds like he's got grand ideas for his next album and sadly, he says he's sticking to his 5 album plan.

That was the first I had heard of his 5 album plan.  What a bummer!

i first heard him mention it on the Joe Rogan Experience. He expands on it in the FB Live on how it's a narrative of a life journey of a human soul. He said Hightop was a past life, Metamodern was ethereal, the soul's journey, Sailor's Guide is about birth & life lessons, and his next album will be about life & sin and the last one about "returning to the light".

Sounds like he's doing more producing too
