Weekly Music Recommendation: Sturgill Simpson

A Kentucky country singer, whose raw, liquid baritone and lyrical acrobatics are giving CPR to the slick, overproduced, overhyped gunk that's trying to pass as today's country music. Simpson could have easily been one of the Highwaymen - the super group with Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Kris Kristofferson and Willie Nelson. "A picture's worth a 1,000 words but a word ain't worth a dime," he sings. Exactly.
