John Sturgill Simpson is an American country music singer-songwriter and actor. As of February 2022, he has released seven albums as a solo artist.

His first two albums, High Top Mountain and Metamodern Sounds in Country Music, were independently released in 2013 and 2014, respectively.
The latter was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Americana Album, listed 18th on Rolling Stone’s “50 Best Albums of 2014,” and named among “NPR’s 50 Favorite Albums of 2014.”
His third album, A Sailor’s Guide to Earth, was released in April 2016 on Atlantic Records and was Simpson’s first major-label release, later earning him Best Country Album at the 59th Grammy Awards while also being nominated for Album of the Year.

Simpson’s fourth album, Sound & Fury, was released on September 27, 2019, and was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Rock Album at the 63rd Grammy Awards.
He released two albums in 2020 – Cuttin’ Grass, Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 – which feature bluegrass interpretations of songs from across his catalog, and marked his return to independent music.

His seventh studio album, The Ballad of Dood and Juanita, was released in August 2021. Simpson’s style has been met with critical favor and frequent comparisons to outlaw country.

Growing up in Kentucky, his parents divorced when he was in the seventh grade. He only “barely graduated” from Woodford High, enlisting in the United States Navy in his senior year.
After three years in the Navy, where he worked in the Combat Information Center of a frigate, Simpson spent some time in Japan.

Besides his music career, Simpson has acted in a few movies.
In 2021, Simpson was cast in Martin Scorsese’s epic Western crime drama film Killers of the Flower Moon (2023) as bootlegger Henry Grammer, who was involved in the Osage Indian murders.

Simpson is a Kentucky Colonel, having been honoured at the Kentucky State Capitol on March 20, 2018.
He has also worked with Tyler Childers as a producer.

Simpson is married to his wife Sarah and has three sons and lives in rural southeast Tennessee.
