Sturgill Simpson returns to his bluegrass roots on Cuttin’ Grass, Vol. 2, the second installment in a series of surprise albums that reimagines Simpson’s best-loved songs as barn-burning string band numbers.
Simpson once again tapped producer David Ferguson to helm the album, which features many of the same players who contributed to Vol. 1. Vol. 2 mines material from his previous solo albums, and includes two songs, “Tennessee” and “Jesus Boogie” from his work with the band Sunday Valley and “Hobo Cartoon” that he wrote with Merle Haggard.
