Sturgill Simpson teamed up with funk/ soul band The Dap Kings for a rousing live performance of his song 'All Around You' at the 59th Grammy Awards this February. The song is from his new record 'A Sailor's Guide To Earth', which won the Grammy for Best Country Album while also having been nominated for Album Of The Year. The album, released in April 2016, reached number one in the US Country chart.
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
