Sturgill Simpson Cuttin' Grass Vol. 1: The Butcher Shoppe Sessions
Release Date: December 11, 2020
Label: High Top Mountain
Since his 2014 breakthrough with Metamodern Sounds In Country Music, Sturgill Simpson has established himself as one of the most ambitious artists of our time. His music stretches across genres, from the psychedelic soul of 2016's A Sailor’s Guide To Earth to the fuzzed-out rock attack of Sound & Fury in 2019. Now Simpson returns to the music of his native Kentucky with his first bluegrass project, Cuttin' Grass Vol. 1: The Butcher Shoppe Sessions. A true "mixtape for the fans," as Sturgill calls it, sees him reimagining songs from across his catalogue backed by some of Nashville's finest acoustic virtuosos.
