Music Monday: Life Ain’t Fair and the World Is Mean by Sturgill Simpson

We live in a mean, unfair world where sometimes it feels like the most outlaw thing you can do is ask a good woman to marry you and raise a family.

It’s been ten years this month since I met the woman who I join in a mutual pact of honest construction, so we took no-angel to Chicago to show her where her daddy asked her mama to marry him.  (The smoky bar where we met is long gone, sadly.)

If I don’t stop featuring all these Kentucky boys I’m going to have to change the name of my blog.  Sturgill was a bit of an acquired taste, for me like a lot of people, but I’m all in these days.  And he knows a thing or two more about being an outlaw than the average faux-outlaw-straight-out-of-the-Nashville-record-label-image-group does.

Life Ain’t Fair is off Sturgill’s album High Top Mountain.

    1. I was listening to this a couple nights ago writing my post and no-angel was really grooving along. Also big hits with her were Colter Wall and . . . Tyler Childers.
