Sturgill Simpson’s revolution is now

Kentucky native Sturgill Simpson won the Grammy Award for Best Country Album for his critically acclaimed “A Sailor’s Guide to Earth.”  The award was presented during the pre-telecast of the awards.  Below is Sturgill Simpson’s acceptance speech:

“Like six years ago, I was in Utah working on the railroad, writing songs at night.  My wife made me quit that job and move to Nashville, so thanks babe. My son was born; I spent that spent first year on the road, missing them, and if it wasn’t for them I wouldn’t have written this album, so I have to thank them.  And I guess the revolution won’t be televised.  Thank you.”
