Sturgill Simpson returns to Letterman

Sturgill Simpson returns to "Late Show with David Letterman,"

Sturgill Simpson returned to the “Late Show with David Letterman” last night performing his rendition of the Buford Abner classic, “Long White Line.” The performance comes in the midst of Sturgill’s extensive North American tour. Sturgill is also confirmed to perform at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, Stagecoach, the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, Governors Ball, Bonnaroo and the Big Barrel Country Music Festival.

The tour celebrates Sturgill’s 2014 release, Metamodern Sounds In Country Music. In the past year, in addition to previously performing on the “Late Show with David Letterman,” Sturgill and his band—bassist Kevin Black, guitarist Laur Joamets and drummer Miles Miller—have performed on “Conan.”

Produced once again by friend and trusted collaborator Dave Cobb, Metamodern Sounds In Country Music was recorded live-to-tape at Nashville’s LCS studio over four days in late 2013. Of the album, Simpson comments, “Myriad worldly offerings—religion, drugs, and more—all claim to be the omnipotent universal truth, but in my experience, love is the only certainty. That’s what this record is about.”
