Watch Sturgill Simpson’s Old Dive Bar Performance Of “Long White Line”

Little did these people know, they were standing in the presence of greatness.

Back in March of 2014, before the release of Metamodern Sounds in Country Music, Sturgill played a little show at a place in Austin, Texas, called the Broken Spoke. It’s little dive bar/dance hall that could pass for somebody’s basement where you had your first sip of beer in high school. It’s a pretty iconic spot in the Austin music scene, but you wouldn’t know it by looking at it.

Anyways, three short years later, Sturgill won a Grammy for “Best Country Album.” Time flies when you’re kicking ass.

Whiskey Riff is the most entertaining country site…ever.
