Sturgill Simpson – Cuttin’ Grass, Vol 2: The Cowboy Arms Sessions

January 18, 2021

This is Sturgill’s second volume of bluegrass arrangements of his catalog. I like this volume better than volume one, mainly because it leans heavily on my favorite Sturgill album A Sailor’s Guide to Earth. Because of my familiarity with the recordings of these songs I can fully appreciate the genius of the bluegrass arrangements.

As I stated in my Vol. 1 review: “These bluegrass arrangements of old songs come off like new songs. According to some of Sturgill’s interviews, these bluegrass arrangements are the way the songs were always meant to be.”

This Cuttin’ Grass project is a welcome addition to Sturgill’s catalog.
