I have to admit that I’m not really sure what this song is about, but I like it. The song reminds me of the old school country you used to get back in the ’60s and ’70s. Actually, listening to this song kind of reminds me of even more eras in country music. So maybe Sturgill Simpson has achieved a timeless song.
Give it a listen and see what you think.
Turtles On The Way – Sturgill Simpson
I like a lot of things about this song. You have the opening that is just that great traditional country voice. That really sets the tone for the song and what you’re going to hear the rest of the couple minutes.
I like the line that some say you might go crazy, but it just might make you go sane. I think that’s a good play on words and it kind of makes you think a little bit.
I also like the video even though it makes me dizzy in some parts. Is this song about tripping? I’m not really cut out for talking about a song like that, but this music is completely different yet familiar and I like it.
I first heard about Sturgill because he’s coming to a festival where I live in Eau Claire later this summer. There are all kinds of different acts on the lineup sheet and he was one. I’m sure he’ll put on a good show and now I’m excited to see him and the others.
