Sturgill Simpson ‘SNL’ Performance Of “Keep It Between The Lines” – WATCH VIDEO
Sturgill Simpson sang “Keep It Between The Lines” on this week’s “SNL.” The song is off his most recent album A Sailor’s Guide To Earth. See the video below of Simpson’s performance of “Keep It Between The Lines” on “Saturday Night Live.”
This marks Simpson’s very first time as the musical guest on “SNL.” It’s also the first time he’s performed “Keep It Between The Lines” on live TV. The country singer is on a roll. Two months ago, the 38-year-old Simpson was introduced to mainstream music fans when he received Grammy nominations for Best Country Album and Album Of The Year. In the latter category, Simpson is up against Adele for “25,” Beyonce’s “Lemonade,” Justin Bieber for “Purpose,” and Drake’s “Views.”
Hours after his shocking nomination for Album Of The Year, Simpson acknowledged to the New York Times there were probably millions of people that morning saying, “Who the f**k is Sturgill Simpson?” Later, the country singer began selling T-shirts on his website with that phrase. Still, A Sailor’s Guide To Earth reached number three on Billboard’s 200 chart, and number one on its Folk Albums, Top Country Albums, and Top Rock Albums charts.
