Sturgill Simpson performed a livestream concert last night at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium. The show continues fundraising efforts for several organizations including the Special Forces Foundation, the Equity Alliance, and the MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund.
Definitely an odd experience with no one in the audience, but it is appreciated nonetheless.
Plus, he assembled a new bluegrass band to perform some of his favorites, and I love it. Simpson mentioned about 22 minutes in that he recorded not one, but two bluegrass records of his own songs that he plans to release this year in two volumes. Yes please!
