Sturgill Simpson joins host David Dye with Stephen Kallao

It’s been nearly a decade since Sturgill Simpson released his breakthrough album Metamodern Sounds in Country Music. On the next World Cafe, hear an interview and performance recorded in 2014 just before Simpson was named the Emerging Artist of the Year at the Americana Music Awards. He reveals that the record’s success came as a huge surprise – he originally thought it would be the last album he would ever make.
