Luke Bryan Wants to Have Coffee With Sturgill Simpson; Simpson Says He’s Never Heard a Single Luke Bryan Song

During a recent interview with New York Times Magazine, Luke Bryan was asked about his music in comparison to Sturgill Simpson’s music.

First, he said his approach to recording songs is based on what his fans react to, “Listen, at the end of the day. I write, record and sing about what I see my fans reacting to. If I roll into a concert and I tell everyone I have written the world’s greatest song, and I walk out there and play it and nobody really gives a [expletive] about it, it ain’t the world’s greatest song anymore. That’s how I go about it. I am not stubborn enough.”

If you really analyze that comment, you could be convinced that Bryan just said he’s trying to sell music, not make music that he likes or is proud of. But, that’s just my take away.

Then, Bryan moved on to Simpson, “I’ve wanted to go have coffee with Sturgill. I am utterly amazed at what he does.”

The author then e-mailed Simpson for a response, “I don’t know Luke, I don’t think about Luke, and I’ve honestly never heard a single note of his music.”

Mr. Simpson, if you’ve never heard it, how can you seemingly be so against it? Also, I don’t think Bryan really wants to have coffee with Simpson.
