Sturgill Simpson - High Top Mountain CD
2013 debut album from the Country singer/songwriter. Nashville sounds like Nashville again on High Top Mountain. From furious Honky-Tonk and pre-outlaw Country-rocking to spellbinding Bluegrass pickin' and emotional balladry, the album serves as a one-stop guide to everything that made real country music such a force to be reckoned with. Pure and uncompromising, devoid of gloss and fakery, High Top Mountain's dozen instant classics evoke the sound of timeless Country in it's many guises and brings back the lyrical forthrightness and depth that permeated the music Simpson absorbed during his Kentucky childhood.
