Watch Sturgill Simpson’s Brassy Performance of “Welcome to the Earth (Pollywog)” on “Late Night With Seth Meyers”

Sturgill Simpson may have grumblings with the ACM Awards, Music Row and Garden & Gun magazine, but he’s got no beef with Seth Meyers. Sturgill made another appearance on Late Night last night (Oct. 12) to perform “Welcome to Earth (Pollywog),” the lead track from his 2016 album, A Sailor’s Guide to Earth.

Backed by a multi-piece brass and string ensemble, Sturgill got down to business with his foreboding vocals before the horn section busted out the soulful groove.

Check out the performance below.

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde’s This Town Talks tour gets rolling next month in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Then for the next 7 months she’ll be crisscrossing this nation playing shows from Georgia to Montana and everywhere in between.

So, with all that travel, and different locations, packing for a tour can present some challenges. Ashley shares one basic piece of advice when it comes to preparing for the road, “At first, learning how to pack for on tour…I really didn’t do a good job. I guess maybe I thought I was leaving for summer camp. So, I would spend a couple of weeks where I overpacked, and a couple of weeks where I under packed. Just let me tell you…if you have to choose between the two – overpack. You can put those clothes away when you get back.”
