Forecastle 2017 is right around the corner. We’re celebrating with 40 Days of Forecastle, covering the festival from all angles — playlists, artist interviews, city guides, behind-the-scenes stories, and a whole lot more. WFPK’s 40 Days of Forecastle is made possible by Kiel Thomson Company and Spalding University.
Before Austin City Limits, Saturday Night Live, and The Grammys came a-calling, Sturgill Simpson made his way to WFPK. A lot has changed for the country superstar since his appearance on our airwaves three short years ago, so we decided to revisit his in-studio session to see what life was like for Sturgill as a wide-eyed up-and-comer.
