Lineup #87

A little bit Country.

Before the onslaught of the May album releases, I’d been spending a lot of time with Sturgill Simpson’s Metamodern Sounds in Country Music, his sophomore release A Sailor’s Guide to Earth as well as Chris Stapleton’s Traveller (which I initially came across last June but was inspired to revisit after his spectacular Coachella set).

My original thought for Lineup #87 was to do a somewhat Country-Americana-Blues-Bluegrass-esque Lineup but I quickly realized two things. 1) I have no authority to make such Lineup (despite a more recent love affair with the Steel Guitar) and 2) I had too many other songs I wanted to share with you.

Thus, Lineup #87 is an interesting little mix of tracks inspired by Sturgill and Chris plus a handful of other songs that don’t match their style at all that I just happen to be loving at the moment.

Until next Monday.
