For the first Saturday Night Live episode of the new year, Sturgill Simpson took the stage to perform.

As part of the Felicity Jones-hosted show, Simpson performed rousing renditions of his songs "Keep It Between the Lines" and "Call to Arms," both from his Grammy-nominated record A Sailor's Guide to Earth, which was one of Variance's 50 Best Albums of 2016.
