While serving in Japan and Malaysia, he saw dark stuff which made him a nihilist. Returning from the army, he did odd jobs like waiting tables and working in railroads. One day, he heard Bill Monroe’s Wayfaring Stranger on the radio, which woke his childhood interest in music.
The incident led him to start a local band. However, he seriously started pursuing music when his then-future wife inspired him to follow his passion. Finally, he released his first album High Top Mountain in 2013.
However, it was his third album, A Sailor’s Guide to Earth which brought Sturgill worldwide fame as it won Best Country Album at the 2017 Grammy Award. He is set to release his fourth album in fall of 2019.
