18 Sep Two Wins For Sturgill Simpson At The 2015 Americana Music Awards
You may remember how Sturgill Simpson picked up the award for “Emerging Artist Of The Year” at last year’s American Music Awards. Having now very much emerged as a bit of a superstar, Sturgill was nominated in three categories this year – Artist Of The Year, Song Of The Year for Turtles All The Way Down and Album Of The Year for Metamodern Sounds In Country Music. Although Sturgill was on tour and unable to attend the ceremony, which was held at Nashville’s legendary Ryman Auditorium, Team Loose were in attendance to jump up and down and make a large amount of noise as Sturgill was crowned the winner of both Artist Of The Year and Song Of The Year. If we’d paused for a moment to stop cheering, we could have captured a photo of super-producer Dave Cobb accepting the Song Of The Year award on Sturgill’s behalf. Instead, here’s the video for award winning song, Turtles All The Way Down.
