WINS BEST COUNTRY ALBUM AT THE 59TH ANNUAL GRAMMY AWARDS, PERFORMS ON LIVE BROADCAST
The official music video for Sturgill Simpson’s “All Around You” is premiering today and can now be viewed HERE.

His previous work includes collaborations with Peter Gabriel, U2, REM, Tracy Chapman, Sting, Bonnie Raitt, Ice-T, Metallica, David Byrne, Joni Mitchell and Tom Waits.
Earlier this week, Simpson won Best Country Album at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards for his acclaimed new album A Sailor’s Guide To Earth and performed “All Around You” on the live broadcast along with The Dap-Kings’ horns. Watch the full performance HERE.
