Sturgill Simpson has released the next installment in its Cuttin ‘Grass series. 1: The Butcher Shoppe Sessions. Vol. 2: The Cowboy Arms Sessions include “Call to Arms”, “Oh Sarah” and “Keep It Between the Lines”. Listen to the whole thing below.
“In Volume 2 we recorded everything I was too scared to do in Volume 1. It’s hard to deny that this is a much more personal recording. I was thinking of my children, my grandfather, my wife, ”Simpson said in a statement about the project. Vol. 2 features a returning crew of famous bluegrass players who were also involved in Vol. 1, including mandolin player Sierra Hull, guitarist Tim O’Brien and violinist Stuart Duncan. Before the Cuttin ‘Grass records, Simpson released his album SOUND & FURY last year, which included an anime film and later a graphic novel.
