    Surfed his name in titles and nothing came up.
    Now this is new old school!

    Oh yeah, he may single-handedly save country music. Here are three of my favorites

    He made it all the way to Scotland a couple of months ago and I haven't stopped hitting youtube since. Just wish more artists were willing to play outside the USA

    Me and and my bandmate Darrin have been listening to Sturgill for a while now....definitely hoping this is where Country music starts heading.

    We liked him so much we did a youtube spinoff, or our own cover take on one of Sturgill's tunes called "Turtles All the Way Down"....even threw in a sax solo at the end to be extra different :lol:

    Hope you like it

    He's good if you like outlaw country. As lots here do, and there's nothing wrong with that
    I generally prefer traditional honkytonk myself

    He's the real deal! As someone mentioned, they're going to save "country" music.
    Those guys are FANTASTIC!

    I'm a fan. It's great to see Sturgill getting some attention. I hope to see more country acts like this break through and gain popularity.
