Sturgill Simpson - Turtles All the Way Down


After meeting Sturgill Simpson during a recent performance in Louisville, you gain a new respect for the singer-songwriter that is doing things his own way. There is no mold, no standalone plan of how things need to be done because he does what he wants to do. Throw away the blueprints of tradition and open your ears to Sturgill Simpson. This southeast Kentucky native is making a name for himself from across the pond in Europe to here in the United States.

Why is that so? Just take one listen to any of the songs on his first album, as well as his newest release and you will understand what the buzz is about. Go see him live in concert and you will see the swagger. You will hear the voice that swoons the hearts of women, make the men sing along, and take you back to the Appalachian Mountains. Who else can sing a song they wrote along with some Neil Diamond? That would be Sturgill Simpson. Listen to the words. Listen to the soul. Listen to the song.

Sturgill Simpson's latest song, "Turtles All the Way Down," leaves the lesson that there is no greater feeling than love. Once you have it, nothing compares to it. Rather than write another song full of cliches and rhymes, Simpson sums it up with the line, "Don’t waste your mind on nursery rhymes, fairy tales, blood and wine, it’s turtles all the way down the line."

According to an interview with WFPK that Simpson had in regards to his album, "it’s a very psychedelic country record about the human experience and love.” His sophomore album, “Metamodern Sounds In Country Music,” is due out May 13.
