Before the onslaught of the May album releases, I’d been spending a lot of time with Sturgill Simpson’s “Metamodern Sounds in Country Music”, his sophomore release “A Sailor’s Guide to Earth” as well as Chris Stapleton’s “Traveller” (which I initially came across last June but was inspired to revisit after his spectacular Coachella set).
My original thought for Lineup #87 was to do a somewhat Country-Americana-Blues-Bluegrass-esque Lineup but I quickly realized two things. 1) I have no authority to make such Lineup (despite a more recent love affair with the Steel Guitar) and 2) I had too many other songs I wanted to share with you.
Thus, Lineup #87 is an interesting little mix of tracks inspired by Sturgill and Chris plus a handful of other songs that don’t match their style at all that I just happen to be loving at the moment.

Until next Monday.
