Sturgill Simpson rolls into the fall of 2015 with the release of his breakthrough 2014 release, Metamodern Sounds In Country Music (iTunes, Amazon, Bandcamp).

On Wednesday evening, Simpson won Artist of the Year, and Song of the Year at the Americana Awards held at the Ryman Auditorium. Due to being on a nationwide tour, the band had Sean and Sara Watkins accept it on their behalf.

The group will be performing two sold out concerts on October 30 & 31 at the Ryman next month.

In celebration of the album, Simpson and his band—bassist Kevin Black, guitarist Laur Joamets, drummer Miles Miller and keyboardist Jefferson Crow—are currently in the midst of their highly anticipated “Living The Dream” fall tour, which will extend through November and includes an upcoming show at New York’s Beacon Theatre as well as three sold-out shows at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium. See below for complete tour details.

“Thank you very much to the Americana Association and everyone who voted for us. We are extremely grateful and humbled this morning. We must also apologize for our absence. It was a decision that I made months back while working on the routing for our current tour. It was either attend the awards or make up a string of shows that were cancelled due to illness back in February for some very disappointed fans. It’s very nice to be recognized by our peers. All the awards in the world are worth nothing without the people who support us.” – Sturgill Simpson
