Sturgill Simpson goes busking outside CMA Awards

If Simpson and Isbell had a fight to see who was the coolest, Simpson would be one up at this point. (But then the Jeremy Hunt thing…  see, it’s never ending..)  Billboard report: “The Country Music Association Awards are being held in Nashville right now. But Sturgill Simpson has never had much love for the country music establishment, and instead of performing at the actual ceremony, he’s been participating by busking outside the event and donating all the money he gets to the ACLU.

He’s also been lives treaming the whole performance, so you can check it out [here].”
