Rising country star Sturgill Simpson teamed up with legendary singer-songwriter John Prine for a faithful rendition of Prine’s 1971 song “Paradise.” Watch the performance above.
Recorded at the GRAMMY museum in Los Angeles, CA, Simpson and Prine sound like a natural fit together. The acoustic warmness of the song lends to the song’s earnest lyrics about strip mining destroying the Kentucky land.
Be sure to catch Sturgill in concert when he begins his North American tour in early August. For more music, news, and tour information about Sturgill Simpson, check out his Zumic artist page.
