Sturgill Simpson

Sturgill Simpson will make his long-awaited return to music this year with an extensive fall tour along with a new album under a new name, Johnny Blue Skies.

In celebration of its ten-year anniversary, a new special edition reissue of Sturgill Simpson’s landmark 2014 album, Metamodern Sounds In Country Music, is out today on High Top Mountain Records/Thirty Tigers (stream/purchase). Originally released May 13, 2014, the album marked a career breakthrough for Simpson personally and proved to be a seismic shift-maker within the larger country music genre.

Sturgill Simpson will headline this year's Outside Lands in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park. This event marks the Grammy Award-winner’s first full show in three years. For his performance, Simpson will reunite with bassist Kevin Black, guitarist Laur Joamets, and drummer Miles Miller. The festival is scheduled for August 9-11, and tickets go on sale to the general public tomorrow, Wednesday, April 24 at 10:00 AM PT.

Sturgill Simpson and Bob Weir made guest appearances during Orebolo's Friday night set on the opening day of Dead Ahead festival last night. Orebolo is a Goose acoustic side project featuring Rick Mitarotonda, Peter Anspach, and Jeff Arevalo (who plays drums for Goose but is on stand-up bass in this band).

In an unforeseen rendezvous of legends, the inimitable Bob Dylan ambushed the atmosphere at this year’s Farm Aid, held at the pulsating Ruoff Music Center in Noblesville, Indiana, on a Saturday night that now glimmers as a golden note in music's ever-evolving tapestry.

The event will celebrate the Grateful Dead songbook featuring two nights of curated collaborations themed “Dead Ahead” with Bobby Weir, Mickey Hart, Jeff Chimenti, Oteil Burbridge, Don Was & Jay Lane featuring Derek Trucks, Susan Tedeschi, Rick Mitarotonda, Margo Price and very special guest Sturgill Simpson.
