Last night, ahead of the CMA Awards at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena-country music's biggest night-Simpson made light of the evening's pomp and circumstance by taking to the street outside the venue for an impromptu busking session.
He also shot the shit with a small group of fans on the sidewalk (and thousands via his Facebook page) and played a few tunes, including his own "Turtles All The Way Down The Line", which featured a hilarious off-the-cuff interjection: "The world would be a lot better place if Donald Trump would smoke some DMT". Hegemony and fascism is alive and well in Nashville, Tennessee.
As he started to play, Simpson proclaimed, "I've finally made it, guys!" "And I'm not afraid to say that because at this point, anybody that's still supporting that guy can't be anything, in my mind, other than an ignorant fucking bigot". That just might be a dig at the CMA Awards media guidelines released last week, which stated reporters could be kicked out if they asked country singers about sensitive topics such as the Las Vegas tragedy, gun control or politics. Anything helps (all donations go to the ACLU).
Simpson, who was born in Jackson and raised in Versailles, has a notoriously bad relationship with the country music establishment, even though he won best country album at this year's Grammy Awards for a "A Sailor's Guide to Earth" and the album topped the country charts.
