This 34-year-old singer/songwriter is the real deal, an honest-to-goodness hillbilly from the Kentucky Appalachians who gave up his job—and we’re not kidding—working for the railroad all his livelong days to performing music full-time. Closer to grizzled outlaws like Willie, Waylon and Merle than polished present-day crossover stars like Brad Paisley and Kenny Chesney, the burly, tattooed Simpson is a throwback to rougher, less pop-oriented times in country and blues. Look for his debut album, High Top Mountain, which he’s releasing independently in June through respected boutique Thirty Tigers.
““The most outlaw thing that I ever done is give a good woman a ring,” sings Simpson on “Life Ain’t Fair And The World Is Mean,” off his new album, High Top Mountain, which mostly works to subvert the outlaw myth. Not that Simpson disdains outlaw’s forefathers, but High Top Mountain tells his own story. He started recording it in mid 2012, laying down tracks at Hillbilly Central and other studios in Nashville with players like “Pig” Robbins on piano and Robby Turner on pedal steel. Simpson says the record is an effort to “capture the music my grandfathers played.” The album is named after a cemetery where many of Simpson’s family members are buried, near his family’s home in the Appalachia coal town of Jackson, Kentucky. The town is on the Kentucky River in Breathitt County, about 50 miles south of Sandy Hook, where Keith Whitley was born, and also not far from Cordell, where Ricky Skaggs was born.“I love it. In my heart it will always be home,” says Simpson”
It is with much sadness that we have to announce the “Adler” show will be postponed on July-3rd. Our thoughts and prayers are with Steven Adler to get well soon and bring his great new band to Whitesburg and Summit City.
Here is the Offical release from his publicist.
“We regret to inform everyone that the Summer tour and European tour has been postponed. Steven has checked into an undisclosed rehabilitation center to continue working on his sobriety. We appreciate everyones support and understanding. We hope to make the dates up soon.”
We are in the process of rescheduling the show in the next few days. If you have purchased a ticket it will be refunded or honored on the new date. If you have any questions please call Summit City or contact Greg Napier.

We are making some exciting changes here at Summit City and we just wanted to feel everyone in on the changes as we move toward this transition. A brief overview…
As many of you know, our new kitchen is almost complete and we are excited about the increased food options this will allow us to prepare. Along with the new kitchen we will be adding a full time cook. This will allow us more options on the type of food we can prepare and also allow food to be served more quickly and efficiently.
An Anna Bogle enhanced menu! Anna has been working on updating the menu and it should be out by the first of the year. Included in this upgrade will be a Saturday brunch menu with exciting food and drink options. Mmmm…. bloody mary…!
In addition to enhancing the menu at Summit City Anna will also be taking over the leadership role as manager of operations. Our wonderful friend Heather Bates is taking on a new role at another company in downtown (yay!) and we are excited for her to move on to greener pastures. We are also so excited about the prospects of Anna’s leadership and the vision she will have for Summit City.
We will begin table service in the New Year. Along with the full time cook we will also have a full time server at all times. Table service will apply to all seating areas (inside and on the deck). Less time chasing food and drinks, more time relaxing!
Tap beer! Now doesn’t that just sound (taste) great! That’s right, it’s in, and we have eight options of fresh beer. One for each day of the week (just trust me on that). Come early and often to see the rotating options!
As of today (December 11, 2012), we will begin opening at 4pm, Tuesday through Friday and 11am on Saturdays (for Brunch). The reason for this is two-fold. One, we want to concentrate our efforts on our evening and brunch dining experience and to perfect these to the nth degree. Summit City has always been and will always be a place for gathering together and celebrating our community. We will still have great times. We will still have great food, amazing drinks and outstanding music and art. We want everything to be perfect and we feel by becoming more specialized we can better achieve this. The second reason is that we are welcoming a new business into downtown Whitesburg! A bakery, Here Comes the Bun, is set to open in the coming weeks and we are very, very excited to have them as partners here in Whitesburg. Here Comes the Bun has created a beautiful space and is set to serve both breakfast and lunch. So along with allowing us to become more specialized, our move will also help ensure the vitality of another business in our downtown. We feel it’s a win-win!
So yes, new and exciting things! We are very excited about the future of not only Summit City, but Whitesburg. We feel that town is moving in a very positive direction and we’re very excited to be a part of it. We hope you are also!
