We’re approaching Thanksgiving 2020, and to be quite honest, I’m not even sure of the last live show I attended. More than anything, I was hoping to see Sturgill Simpson and Tyler Childers this past spring, but COVID happened, and now here we are…
Don't remember the last concert I went to… not even a little bit. Not a fucking clue.
And while some artists have performed live streams, some have tried their best to host socially distanced shows, drive-ins, etc… I keep finding myself digging back into old concerts on YouTube. It ain’t much, but it’s honest work.
And today, I stumbled upon this gem from back in 2016.
Sturgill Simpson performing his entire A Sailor’s Guide To Earth record for KCRW, live from Apogee Studios in Santa Monica, California.
Of course, the record would go on to be nominated for all-genre Album of the Year at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards, winning Country Album of the Year.
And don’t forget his bluegrass concert live from the Ryman earlier this year.
