  • MY NEXT GUEST IS A GRAMMY AWARD-WINNING COUNTRY MUSICIAN

  • AND FRIEND OF THE SHOW.

  • PLEASE WELCOME, STURGILL SIMPSON!

  • STURNLGIL, GOOD TO SEE YOU AGAIN.

  • YOU LOOK LIKE YOU'RE TALKING TO US FROM A SECRET LAIR SOMEPLACE.

  • >> YOU CAN SAY THAT.

  • WE'LL LEAVE IT THERE.

  • >> Stephen: OKAY, GOOD, THAT'S FINE.

  • YOU WERE SUPPOSED TO BE ON THE SHOW BACK IN APRIL, BUT WE HAD

  • TO POSTPONE THAT BECAUSE YOU HAD THE COVID, RIGHT?

  • >> YEAH, I GOT THE 'RONA.

  • >> Stephen: YOU GOT THE 'RONA?

  • WHEN DID YOU ACTUALLY GET IT, MARCH, APRIL?

  • >> HARD TO SAY, WE WERE ON THE ROAD IN EUROPE IN LATE FEBRUARY

  • IN EUROPE AND CAME BACK AND JUMPED RIGHT INTO A U.S. ARENA

  • TOUR IN MARCH, SO PLAYED THE LAST SHOW IN CHARLESTON ON THE

  • TENTH OF MARCH, AND THE NEXT DAY, I WOKE UP FEELING LIKE A

  • BUCK FULL OF BUTTHOLES, AND WE CANCELED ABOUT THREE SHOWS THAT

  • WEEKEND.

  • I WENT HOME, AND THE NEXT MORNING I WAS IN THE E.R.

  • >> Stephen: I ACTUALLY JUST TALKED TO HUGH GRANT AND HE HAD

  • CORONA ABOUT THE SAME TIME AND HE'S IN EUROPE SO MAYBE YOU GOT

  • IT FROM THE SAME PLACE, EUROPE.

  • >> ACCORDING TO THE DOCTOR I SAW, IT WASN'T IN EUROPE AT THAT

  • TIME, SO IT WAS IMPOSSIBLE I CONTRACTED IT.

  • BUT MY BLOOD PRESSURE SEEMED TO ARGUE.

  • >> Stephen: DID YOU LOSE THE SENSE OF TASTE AND ALL THAT KIND

  • OF STUFF?

  • >> I DIDN'T HAVE THAT.

  • I HAD AN INTENSE FRONTAL LOBE HEADACHE FOR THREE DAYS, EXTREME

  • FATIGUE, WHICH I THOUGHT WAS EXHAUSTION FOR ABOUT A WEEK

  • BEFORE I GOT REAL HEAVY.

  • WE WERE PLAYING SHOWS, AND CERTAIN NOTES WEREN'T COMING

  • THAT EASY.

  • I THOUGHT I WAS MAYBE A LITTLE OUT OF SLAP.

  • BUT, YEAH, WHEN I GOT-- AND ABOUT THE SAME WE GOT HOME, WHEN

  • IT REALLY HIT, I GUESS I WOULD DESCRIBE IT AS IT FELT LIKE

  • SOMEBODY HAD A RATCHET STRAP AROUND MY CHEST, AROUND LOW,

  • MID-160s BLOOD PRESSURE.

  • >> Stephen: WOW.

  • SO HOW LONG DID IT TAKE FOR TO YOU RECOVER?

  • >> THOSE SYMPTOMS SEEMED TO ALMOST EVAPORATE AS SOON AS THEY

  • CAME ON, ABOUT A COUPLE OF DAYS, AND I HAD THREE WEEKS OF WHAT I

  • WOULD DESCRIBE AS EXTREMELY INTENSE FATIGUE.

  • AND AFTER THAT I FEEL LIKE I HAVE SUPER POWERS NOW, I GUESS.

  • >> Stephen: BEFORE WE TALK ABOUT THE NEW ALBUM, I WANT TO

  • REVISIT MY PERSONAL FAVORITE SONG OF YOURS, THE ONE YOU AND I

  • RECORDED TOGETHER, OBVIOUSLY ABOUT THE LAST HAPPY PLACE.

  • THE WATCH FELL HOUSE.

  • JIM, CAN WE HIT IT?

  • ( CHEERING ) ♪ ♪ ♪

  • WELL YOU WANT SOME GOOD FOOD WHEN YOUR NIGHT OUT ENDS

  • AND THE BIG YELLOW SIGN IS YOUR NEW BEST FRIEND

  • THEY GOT WAFF FELLS AND BACON, COFFEE, TOO

  • BUT AN ALL-STAR BREAKFAST COMES WITH SOME RULES

  • >> Stephen: WE LOOKED SO YOUNG, STIRNLGIL.

  • >> WHAT WAS THAT 10 YEARS AGO.

  • >> Stephen: THREE YEARS AGO, I WOULD SAY.

  • HAVE YOU HIT THE WATC WATCH FELL LATELY.

  • >> I HAVE THREE BOYS AND OCCASIONALLY ON THE WEEKEND I

  • GIVE MOM A BREAK AND TAKE THEM TO THE WAFFEL HOUSE.

  • NOT OFTEN, THOUGH, BECAUSE THAT ( BLEEP ) WILL LITERALLY KILL

  • YOU.

  • >> Stephen: YOU'LL GO DOWN HAPPY, THAT'S FOR SURE.

  • >> WHAT I MISSED THE MOST WAS THE DAYS OF YOUTH SPENT MANY A

  • LATE NIGHT IN THE WAFFEL HOUSE.

  • PROBABLY THE MOST INTERESTING PEOPLE I MET IN MY LIFE WAS IN A

  • WAFFFELL HOUSE AT 3:00 A.M.

  • >> ME AND CHIP ROLLED IN AT 2:00 A.M. AND SAY, "WE'LL TAKE THIS

  • HALF OF THE MENU."

  • YOU CAN JUST POINT TO THE PICTURES.

  • YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE FOCUSED ENOUGH TO READ.

  • WELL, I WANT TO TALK ABOUT THE NEW ALBUM.

  • IT'S FANTASTIC.

  • BLOWING UP.

  • EVERYBODY'S DIGGING IT.

  • STURGILL SIMPSON, CAN THE YOU "C GRASS."

  • THIS IS BLUEGRASS BUT YOUR SONGS RE-RECORDED IN BLUEGRASS.

  • HOW DID YOU FIRST ENCOUNTER BLUEGRASS?

  • >> MY PATERNAL GRANDFATHER WAS A BLUEGRASS FREAK, AND AT A VERY

  • YOUNG AGE, PROBABLY FAR TOO YOUNG, STARTED SHOVING IT DOWN

  • MY THROAT, WHETHER I WANTED HIM TO OR NOT, AND MY MUSICAL

  • PALETTE WASN'T READY TO RECEIVE IT.

  • AND YOU'RE SEVEN, EIGHT YEARS OLD.

  • IT'S VERY HEADY MUSIC.

  • A LOT OF PEOPLE DOWNPLAY IT AS HILL BILL STUFF.

  • YOU HAVE TO REALLY-- IT'S LIKE HILLBILLY JAZZ.

  • YOU HAVE TO KNOW YOUR WAY AROUND AND IT'S WORK, I GUESS.

  • SO LATER ON, WHEN I REDISCOVERED IT, I SPENT ABOUT 10 YEARS IN MY

  • 20s JUST UTTERLY OBSESSED.

  • AND I ALWAYS WANTED TO DO THIS.

  • I'M PROBABLY CLOSER TO ANYTHING A BLUEGRASS MUSICIAN AT HEART.

  • BUT, YOU KNOW, YOU GO TO NASHVILLE.

  • YOU MAKE COUNTRY RECORDS.

  • AND I JUST WANTED TO GO BACK AND RE-RERECORD BY BACK CATEGORY THE

  • WA I THOUGHT THE SONGS SHOULD BE HEARD.

  • >> Stephen: YOU RECORDED THE ALBUM AT THE BUTCHER SHOP,

  • COOWNED BY JOHN PRYNE.

  • THIS IS A GREAT PHOTO OF YOU RIDING WITH JOHN PRYNE ON HIS

  • MOTORCYCLE THERE.

  • HOW DID YOU GET TO KNOW JOHN?

  • HOW DID YOU ALL MEET?

  • >> I RECORDED "A SAILOR'S GUIDE TO EARTH" AT THE BUTCHER SHOP

  • WITH DAVID FERGUSON WHO USED TO OWN THE STUDIO WITH JOHN.

  • THEY WERE GOOD FRIENDS.

  • WE FINISHED THE RECORD, AND I WAS IN THERE MIXING IT ONE DAY,

  • AND I WAS PRETTY IN THE ZONE, HEAD DOWN AT THE BOARD, AND I

  • GUESS I TOOK A BREAK, HIT THE SPACE BAR, AND WHEN I TURNED

  • AROUND, JOHN WAS SITTING IN A CHAIR IN THESE PLAID PANTS JUST

  • KIND OF LOOKING-- I HAD NO IDEA HOW LONG HE HAD BEEN SITTING

  • THERE.

  • I HIT VAPOR LOCK.

  • I KIND OF FREAKED OUT.

  • YOU COME FACE TO FACE WITH YOUR HERO.

  • AND HE WAS LIKE, "THAT'S PRETTY GOOD."

  • AND HE SAID, "DO YOU WANT TO GO GET SOME MEAT LOAF"

  • WE HAD LUNCH AND ANY TIME I CAME UP TO THE TOWN WE GRABBED LUNCH

  • AND I PICKED HIM UP.

  • I HAD A TUNED UP RACE CAR AND WE'D GET ON IT.

  • HE WAS KIND OF A CAR GUY.

  • ALONG WITH MYSELF AND MANY OTHERS, HE WAS A MENTOR AND VERY

  • GIVING WITH HIS TIME AND WISDOM.

  • AND WE WERE ALL GREATFUL TO GET TO KNOW HIM.

  • >> Stephen: I UNDERSTAND THAT WHEN JOHN PASSED, HE LEFT

  • SOMETHING FOR YOU, THAT YOU RECEIVED SOMETHING FROM THE JOHN

  • PRYNE ESTATE.

  • >> YEAH, I JUST RECENTLY BECAME THE NEW OWNER OF HIS 2008

  • PORSCHE 911 TURBO.

  • >> Stephen: NOW, I DON'T KNOW WHY IT SURPRISES ME THAT JOHN

  • PRYNE HAD A 911 TURBO.

  • >> OH, HE'S A TOTAL CAR GUY.

  • HE HAD A BURCH OF OLD CADILLACS.

  • THE 911 WAS HIS BUCKET LIST DREAM CAR.

  • I MEAN, IT'S ONLY GOT ABOUT 20,000 MILES ON IT, BUT IT'S

  • SHOWROOM.

  • >> Stephen: ARE YOU GIVING IT A WORKOUT?

  • >> OH, I LIKE MUSIC AND CARS THAT GO REAL FAST, MAN.

  • BUT I HAVE THREE CHILDREN.

  • I FEEL LIKE I JUST HAD A FOURTH WITH THE RESPONSIBILITY THAT

  • COMES WITH THIS THING.

  • BUT I JUST CAN'T TELL YOU.

  • IT'S BITTERSWEET, BUT IT WILL BE SOMETHING I TREASURE THE REST OF

  • MY LIFE.

  • >> Stephen: WELL, YOU'RE ALSO GOING TO PLAY A SONG FOR US

  • TONIGHT.

  • WHAT ARE YOU PLAYING FOR US?

  • >> I THOUGHT WE'D PICK SOMETHING ON ALONG THE LINES OF HEALING,

  • IN TERMS OF LYRICAL CONTENT.

  • THIS IS CALLED "BREAKERS ROAR."

  • >> Stephen: "CUTTIN' GRASS VOLUME ONE" IS AVAILABLE NOW.

  • THE MAN IS STURGILL SIMPSON.

  • STICK AROUND FOR A PERFORMANCE.

  • WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.
