While many of us were bored senseless, the Kentucky native was prolific. After recovering from COVID-19, he dropped two albums in the latter months of the year, Cuttin' Grass, Vol. 1: The Butcher Shoppe Sessions, which peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 chart, and its followup Cuttin' Grass, Vol. 2: The Cowboy Arms Sessions, which reached No. 27.
