Laur Joamets Brought His Fuzz Strap to Letterman with Sturgill Simpson

Laur Joamets plays a telecaster on Letterman with Sturgill Simpson

We're huge fans of Sturgill Simpson, but we had no idea his guitar player Laur Joamets was using one of our Peruvian guitar straps until he showed up wearing it on Letterman last night.

We did attempt to hook the band up with a strap when they came to Proud Larry's in Oxford, MS last fall. And, we knew that a Peruvian Strap in Cusco had made it onto the bus, but we never heard anything else about it. Good to see that they're putting it to good use.

Check out their performance of "Thin White Line." Laur absolutely rips it.
