    Sturgill Simpson busked for the ACLU outside last night’s Country Music Awards. He also took questions from fans and passersby. When asked what his acceptance speech would be, he said:

    Nobody needs a machine gun. Coming from a guy who owns quite a few guns. Gay people should have the right to be happy and live their life any way they want to, and get married if they want to, without fearing getting drug down the road on a pickup truck. Black people are probably tired of getting shot in the streets, and getting enslaved by the industrial prison complex, and hegemony and racism is alive and well in Nashville, Tennessee. Thank you very much.

    He’s incredible and obviously an incredible human being. Just the person you’d think country music would be trying to embrace in 2017

    He is so damn fun to watch live too

    He's the hero country music needs right now.
