The Ballad Of Dood & Juanita auf Wikipedia (oder andere Quellen):

The Ballad of Dood and Juanita is the seventh studio album by American country music singer-songwriter Sturgill Simpson, released on August 20, 2021. Simpson describes the album as "traditional country, bluegrass and mountain music, including gospel and a cappella." Simpson wrote and recorded the album in a week,[2] with a backing band known as the Hillbilly Avengers.[1][3] Willie Nelson guests on the song "Juanita".[4]

The Ballad of Dood and Juanita is a concept album set in eastern Kentucky during the American Civil War. Described by Simpson as "a simple tale of either redemption or revenge",[5] the album's narrative revolves around the titular couple: the sharpshooting Dood and his beloved Juanita. When Juanita is kidnapped by an outlaw named Seamus McClure, Dood sets out with his mule Shamrock and his dog Sam to rescue her.[1][6]

Stephen Thomas Erlewine of AllMusic wrote that, "Its brevity means that The Ballad of Dood & Juanita can initially seem a bit slight, yet it's ultimately quite sturdy, an album that gains its strength from Simpson's dogged dedication to the concept – there's nothing extraneous in his songs here – and the impeccable execution of the band."[3] Lee Zimmerman of American Songwriter called the album "yet another example of [Simpson's] unfettered ambition", and "his most rugged and resilient yet."[5] NME's Leonie Cooper called the album "less a chart-friendly collection of twanging country tunes and more a deft slice of sonic storytelling", and concluded: "The Ballad of Dood & Juanita is not just a faithful, fun celebration of a traditional sound, but that of a traditional form, too."[6]

Pitchfork's Grayson Haver Currin, in his review of the album, wrote: "By turns romantic, playful, sympathetic, and solemn, The Ballad of Dood and Juanita is a compelling update on American frontier mythmaking, delivered by a band good enough to push lovingly against genre conventions."[1] David Browne of Rolling Stone referred to The Ballad of Dood and Juanita as "both the most natural and most baffling record [Simpson's] ever made."[7] Browne added that, melodically, the album's songs seem "as if Simpson spent more time on the story and imagery than the melodies", writing: "As much as you have to admire Simpson for making such an oddball and ambitious record, the album rarely transcends its tale."[7]

Sturgill Simpson (2016)

Sturgill Simpson (* 8. Juni 1978 in Jackson, Kentucky) ist ein US-amerikanischer traditioneller Countrymusiker.


Sturgill Simpson begann seine musikalische Karriere mit der Band Sunday Valley, die von 2004 bis 2011 bestand. Danach begann er eine Solokarriere und arbeitete an seinem Debütalbum. High Top Mountain erschien 2013, es war ein moderater Erfolg in den Countrycharts und etablierte ihn als Musiker in dem Genre in der Tradition von Waylon Jennings. Bei seinem zweiten Album Metamodern Sounds in Country Music arbeitete er mit dem Produzenten Dave Cobb zusammen. Damit erreichte er die Top 10 der Countrycharts und platzierte sich auch in den offiziellen Albumcharts. Bei den Americana Music Awards wurde er 2014 als Newcomer und 2015 als bester Musiker ausgezeichnet. Das Album erhielt eine Grammy-Nominierung in der Americana-Kategorie.

Bis zu seinem nächsten Album ließ sich Simpson diesmal zwei Jahre Zeit. Das Konzeptalbum A Sailor’s Guide to Earth war seine erste Veröffentlichung beim Major-Label Atlantic und stieg im April 2016 auf Platz 1 der Country- und auf Platz 3 der Verkaufscharts ein. Es konnte sich auch im Ausland in den Charts platzieren. Bei den Grammy Awards 2017 erhielt er dafür die Auszeichnung als Countryalbum des Jahres, in der Hauptkategorie „Album des Jahres“ war es ebenfalls nominiert.

Sturgill Simpson veröffentlichte 2019 die Single „The Dead Don’t Die“, den Titelsong zum gleichnamigen Film von Jim Jarmusch. Sein Album Cuttin’ Grass – Vol. 1 (Butcher Shoppe Sessions) erhielt 2021 eine Grammy-Nominierung in der Kategorie Bestes Bluegrass Album.
