Sturgill Simpson, Live At The 2014 Americana Music Awards

Introduced at the Americana Music Awards as "the hero of outlaw country" by Elizabeth Cook (who surely knows of what she speaks), Sturgill Simpson did his darnedest not to disappoint as he ripped and roared through "Life Of Sin" from his breakthrough album, Metamodern Sounds In Country Music.

Simpson has been lauded as this generation's incarnation of (and answer to) Waylon Jennings. While the comparisons is warranted from a musical standpoint, his songwriting goes deeper and wider than anything outlaw country has heard before.
