Downtown congratulates country singer and songwriter Sturgill Simpson on his third studio album, A Sailor's Guide to Earth, which has sailed to # 1 on the Country, Rock, Folk, Tastemaker, and Vinyl album charts, and hit # 3 on the Billboard 200, right under the late Prince’s leading two spots - a remarkable accomplishment for a top album that only has one writer.
The 1960’s was an era defined by music, perspective, and change — ranging across genres of Rock, Latin, Jazz, to R&B. It was a pivotal time, as rock music came of age and began to dominate the pop music charts. The Beatles were significant to defining the zeitgeist of western culture in the ‘60s. Written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney “Love Me Do”, was their first hit in the UK, propelling their career.
