Sturgill Simpson: Metamodern Sounds In Country Music

This is a new (and slightly heretical) voice in Nashville. Could easily define the new direction in country music. A slightly off the main axis, but sufficiently different that it cannot be ignored. Perhaps the biggest innovation in sound is his guitarist, Laur Joamets from Estonia, who played in a hard rock band, but does not seem to be having any problems blending in with Nashville crowd. The licks and sound he produces always respect the tradition, but are, at the same time, unlike anything Nashville has heard before. the songwriting is absolutely mind-boggling.
