Description

For this ‘lockdown’ album, Sturgill decided to gather some of the best bluegrass players in Tennessee and record 20 of his previously written tunes with a full bluegrass accompaniment.  Sturgill is a Grammy award winning artist, and despite admitting he doesn’t have too many friends in Music City, he’s been able to call upon the best of the best for this record. The Top Gun of bluegrass musicians. The songs Sturgill writes are so well written that they can be tweaked and twisted into whatever genre or style you want.

The fact that artists like Simpson and Tyler Childers have spent 2020 making music  and honing their craft (rather than their planned tour schedules) shows why they’re held in such esteem. This record is a triumph in achieving exactly what Sturgill wanted, he gave his supportive fans the music they craved and explored his  love of bluegrass at the same time. Sure, there’s no new music here, no fresh songs, but there’s a showcase of some of the finest musicianship on the planet and some seriously good reimaginings of Sturgill’s back catalogue.
