The damage and has been significant, and by many accounts, Sturgill Simpson’s hometown of Jackson (pop. 2,200) has been the epicenter of it. The area around Panbowl Lake that Sturgill sings about in the song “Pan Bowl” suffered major flooding.
If you’re wondering where your money is going if you’ve donated to the Hickman Holler Appalachian Relief Fund established by Tyler Childers and Senora May—either directly, or indirectly by purchasing and/or streaming his recent album Long Violent History—it has been announced…
Captured with professional audio and in multiple camera angles, the sold-out Tyler Childers concert also featured musical appearances by reigning Saving Country Music Album of the Year winner Arlo McKinley, along with Jeremy Short, Brian Fallon, and Senora May.

Similar to one of Tyler’s signature songs from his first record, “Feathered Indians,” it’s a sincere love song delivered with soul and conviction to his wife and fellow performer Senora May. It’s the arrangement of the studio version that makes it come across as less than ideal.
