no wonder the country music establishment is ignoring him & margo price. they are very afraid!
Those two and Jason Isbell write circles around the fools on the radio yet they don't get that level of attention.....
which pretty much makes country music like every other genre in the industry.

That may be the smallest drum kit I've seen. As far as I could see, he had just a bass drum and snare, along with cymbals. Is that right?
Yeah. I've seen videos of him playing a more traditional setup. I suspect the stripped down kit was a statement in itself. Kicking up more dust with two drums than any of the overwrought, glammed up show-biz cowboy hat acts and their convoy of semi trucks full of gear.

There is a lot to love about Sturgill with his classic country revival sound combined with his philosophical but grounded psychedelic point of view. and I'm thrilled with the soul influence he's brought in with the horns and Hammond. I'm not crazy about his overly clipped, choppy ennunciation in his singing, though. I love a solid country drawl in the vocals of country music as much as anybody, but I think the style he's adopted is too much. He didn't used to do it as much. Check out the difference in this earlier video.

And I'd encourage all fans of Sturgill and classic country to check out Courtney Granger from Louisianna. Now this guy can sing some classic country! Yeah, his album is all covers and he's sounding ALOT like George Jones to the point I can see many criticize him for mimicry, but I never buy into that originality argument. George Jones and Merle Haggard are dead and you can't see them live any more. Anyone who can do what Courtney can do is someone I want to listen to.
