Billy Strings has been hailed as the future of bluegrass, transcending tradition and genre with his high velocity, flat-picking guitar technique and intense, confessional songwriting and he’s here to spend some time with No Simple Road! This conversation is a lot like a river, flowing easily and at times taking us to unexpected places. Billy talks about losing friends to substance abuse and how that made him form an otherworldly work ethic, being raised around Bluegrass music and how that just seemed so cool, his relationship with his Dad and how that has informed the person he is today, and tells us what his perfect day looks like!
