Performance Options

Sturgill Simpson

  • How you met Sturgill Simpson: on his 2013 debut album, High Top Mountain
  • What you may have confused that record with: a long-lost Waylon Jennings recording
  • Who else had that thought: Shooter Jennings, who told Rolling Stone “he sounds like my favorite era of my dad, the Seventies… That’s what struck me about Sturgill from Day One.”
  • How he switched things up: he opened his guitar’s third eye on his 2014 followup, Metamodern Sounds in Country Music, by incorporating psychedelia and lyrics about mythology, drugs, cosmology, and physics
  • How critics felt: almost universally positive according to Metacritic, with Paste Magazine noting “the songs owe as much to Carl Sagan as they do Merle Haggard, most notably on the almost seven-minute ‘It Ain’t All Flowers,’ which takes ’70s outlaw country on a sizzling acid trip”

American Idol LIVE!

  • Who’s singing: the top 5 finalists of American Idol season 14
  • Who won the season: Nick Fradiani
  • The top five, in order: Fradiani, Clark Beckham, Jax, Rayvon Owen, Tyanna Jones
  • Why Fradiani looks so familiar: before Idol, he won the Battle of the Bands at Mohegan Sun as the lead singer of Beach Avenue, a pop outfit who also appeared on America’s Got Talent
  • Who the Top Five stars might cover: Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Maroon 5
