After the release of his killer new album, Sound & Fury, this past Friday, Sturgill kicked off his 6-show underplay tour at the iconic Troubadour in West Hollywood, California.
The mini-tour will give 100% of all proceeds to the Special Forces Foundation, an organization that provides assistance to Army Special Forces soldiers, Green Berets, and their families. But while he was in LA, Sturgill stopped by the Joe Rogan Experience for the fourth time and delivered a monumental tour announcement.
Starting in February, the great Sturgill Simpson will be embarking on a full United States tour, and he’s taking the great Tyler Childers along for the ride. Of course, Sturgill produced both Purgatory, and Tyler’s latest album, Country Squire. A percentage of the proceeds for this tour will also go to the Special Forces Foundation.
Stay tuned for the complete announcement with dates and locations, but if you only make it to one show this year, this is probably the one you don’t want to miss.
By the way, if you haven’t checked out Joe Rogan’s podcast, it’s absolutely one of the best in the entire world. He’s had great artists like Sturgill Simpson, Chris Stapleton, and Shooter Jennings on the podcast, among tons of other great guests, and he’s also publicly showed support for artists like Tyler Childers and Jason Isbell in the past.
With Joe’s MASSIVE sphere of influence, anytime he’s championing good country music, real country music, it’s a big win non-mainstream artists and a positive sign for the country genre in general. You gotta love it.
We’re still hoping to see Tyler on the podcast though, make it happen Joe.
