Sturgill Simpson thrilled fans by dropping his second surprise bluegrass album in two months: Cuttin’ Grass’ Vol 2 – The Cowboy Arms Sessions, on the heels of Vol 1, which released in October. The project was produced by David Ferguson and is out now digitally on High Top Mountain Records via Thirty Tigers/The Orchard. A vinyl pre-order is available now for release April 2, 2021.
Simpson reunited with an A Team of acoustic musicians, now dubbed “The Hillbilly Avengers,” for Cuttin’ Grass, Volume 2: The Cowboy Arms Sessions to once again revisit and reinterpret his catalogue.
“On Volume 2, we recorded everything I was too afraid to do on Volume 1,” said Simpson. “It’s hard to deny that this is a much more personal record. I was thinking about my kids, my grandfather, my wife.”
