New Music | Sturgill Simpson – Brace For Impact (Live A Little)

This week we were treated to a nice surprise in the form of a new album from Kentucky musician Sturgill Simpson.

But as I was walking around to the side entrance I noticed they had a big sign out front promoting a new Bakersfield exhibit, which I thought was terribly ironic. Michael Gray, the exhibit’s curator, recently gave an interview on NPR’s World Cafe & he said that Bakersfield was “maybe not so much a reaction to Nashville, but an alternative…
