    This is what country is supposed to sound like, not the country rap or pop country **** that proliferates today. It's sad that a genre once full of soul has devolved into what we hear on the radio.

    As great as these songs are, it is an injustice not to hear them live to get the true depth and energy of these songs. The lyrical feel and attitude beat anything coming out in punk/rock today. Sturgill is going to be around for a long time!

    A great country music record. Nothing less. [Oct 2014, p.91]

    Where Simpson truly scores is in the ease with which he ponders life’s bigger questions while couching them in familiar country language and sounds.

    Metamodern Sounds in Country Music uses the genre's classic narratives to obscure right and wrong in the search for higher truths.
