STURGILL SIMPSON Cuttin’ Grass – Vol. 1 (Butcher Shoppe Sessions)


Out of stock

Simpson returns to the music of his native Kentucky with his first bluegrass project, Cuttin’ Grass – Vol. 1 (The Butcher Shoppe Sessions). The album, which he calls “a mixtape for the fans,” was dreamed up while he was recovering from Coronavirus, and sees him reimagining songs from across his catalogue backed by some of Nashville’s finest acoustic virtuosos. “All the songs I’ve ever written were written on one guitar, my old Martin D-28, and sung in a fashion that’s probably closer to bluegrass than to anything else,” Simpson explains. “I had it in my mind for a long time that someday I want to cut as many of these songs as possible in this fashion, just organic and stripped down to the raw bones of the composition. If you can’t sit down and play a song like that, it’s probably a pretty shitty song.”
