Sturgill Simpson ‘SNL’ Performance Of “Call To Arms” – WATCH VIDEO
Sturgill Simpson sang “Call To Arms” on this week’s “SNL.” The song is off his latest album A Sailor’s Guide To Earth. Earlier, Simpson performed “Keep It Between The Lines” on “SNL.” See the video below of the country singer’s performance of “Call To Arms” on “Saturday Night Live.”
As Gossip Cop previously mentioned, this is Simpson’s musical debut on “SNL.” And it’s the very first time he’s played “Call To Arm” live on TV. Simpson has, however, played on other late-night shows at NBC, having performed on both “The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon” and “Late Night With Seth Meyers.”
While Simpson may not be a household name, he’s pitted against some of the most recognizable artists at this year’s Grammy Awards. In addition to being nominated for Best Country Album, he’s facing off with Drake, Justin Bieber, Beyonce and Adele for Album Of The Year. And while each of their albums sold well into the millions, only around 150,000 copies of the country singer’s A Sailor’s Guide To Earth were purchased. Nevertheless, his album still hit the number one spot on Billboard’s Top Rock Albums, Top Country Albums, and Folk Albums charts.
