Sturgill Simpson with guests: The London Souls
The fall tour celebrates Sturgill's highly acclaimed 2014 release, Metamodern Sounds In Country Music, which continues to receive overwhelming acclaim. The Americana Association recently nominated him in three categories at their 2015 Honors & Awards - "Artist of the Year," "Album of the Year" and "Song of the Year" (for "Turtles All The Way Down"). Sturgill's widely praised guitarist, Laur Joamets, was also nominated for "Instrumentalist of the Year." Sturgill won "Emerging Artist of the Year" at last year?s awards.
In the past year, Sturgill and his band - bassist Kevin Black, guitarist Laur Joamets and drummer Miles Miller - have performed twice on the Late Show with David Letterman, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, twice on Conan and Late Night with Seth Meyers as well as on the PBS' Austin City Limits (air date TBD), BBC's "Later Live with Jools Holland," "Later...with Jools Holland," American Public Media's "A Prairie Home Companion," and NPR Music's "Tiny Desk Concert" series.
