Yo Nashville: Sturgill Simpson - Time After All

Feels Like: William Elliott Whitmore, George Ezra, Andrew Combs

There are people who show up on Nashville concert calendars over and over. Most of the time I write them off as some down-and-out honky tonk singer, but Sturgill Simpson persisted. Eventually, it had to be checked out and I'm glad I did. Listen to that voice. That's a real fucking country voice. Although that voice threatens to overshadow everything else, it doesn't. The songs hold up. The musicianship is there. This is what the real deal sounds like.

Yo Nashville is a segment in which we highlight local acts from right here in Music City U.S.A.
