The last time Lagniappe caught up with Sturgill Simpson, he was preparing for his first performance in the Azalea City. With a modern country style steeped in classic tradition, he made quite an impression on the locals. Since then, he has made quite an impression on the world.

He has appeared on “Conan” and thrilled the critics with his latest release “Metamodern Sounds in Country.” The crowd can expect a fiery performance from the talented artist.

Cris Jacobs has been given the support position on Simpson’s tour. Jacobs is sure to win the crowd over just as easily as Simpson did on his first visit. Jacobs embraces an gritty blues sound that is filled with the old school. Jacobs has been performing in support of his latest album “Songs for Cats and Dogs.” While Jacobs’ sound is worlds away from Simpson, he still makes for the perfect warm up act for the show.
