It’s been quite some time since an artist captured the collective heartbeat of the underground country scene quite like Sturgill Simpson has done. His rise has been historic and meteoric. Fans of all stripes are flocking to Sturgill as some sort of country music savior. His latest Texas run is the most recent indication of his current status. Sell-outs at large venues at Beatles/Garth rates occurred. Fans are traveling from far and wide to see their latest hero. Sturgill’s easygoing attitude and calm nature about it all has only endeared him to people further. There is a tiny hipster minority of folks waging a Sturgill backlash but they can’t stem the Sturgill tide. Who’s coming to see what all the fuss is about this weekend? Many of the GW crew will be at both Stubb’s shows and the Billy Bob’s gig. See you there. Come say hi. As a music fan, this is livin’ the dream.
