Watch Sturgill Simpson Sit In With Willie Nelson During the Outlaw Tour

Outlaw Music Festival Tour 2018 Sturgill Simpson

A few weeks ago, we brought the Outlaw Music Festival Tour to Cincinnati, OH’s gorgeous Riverbend Music Center. Without prior knowledge, magic was made that evening when Sturgill Simpson joined Willie Nelson onstage.

The pair performed “Mammas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys” together, and Simpson backed the country music legend on his telecaster during a 12-minute medley finale.

In this fan video, shot by Heather Kiser, Stu rips into several barn-razing solos, complete with chicken-pickin’, throughout the entire performance. He even trades vocals with Willie!
