Sturgill Simpson Debuts Merle Haggard’s Final Recorded Song

It’s a bit heavy, which makes for a classic.

“It’s my first time ever playing inside Bridgestone”, he jokes.

(The Grammy winner famously “Busked for a Cause” outside the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville before the 2017 CMAs, which was captured on Facebook Live.)

There was a Willie Nelson tribute Saturday in Nashville, where multiple, never before heard songs were debuted by several artists.

Sturgill Simpson sang Merle Haggard’s last recorded song, “Red Headed Rounder”. Simpson said the song was written by Merle both for and about Willie Nelson.

You can check out the video captured at the tribute of Simpson’s performance, below.

 

The Willie Nelson tribute is set to air on A&E at some point later this year.
