If you missed Alan Jackson and his all-star band last night on The Late Show with David Letterman – or just want to watch it again – the video is embedded below.
He performed Blacktop from his current release, The Bluegrass Album, with Tim Crouch on fiddle, Rob Ickes on resonator guitar, Sammy Shelor on banjo, Adam Steffey on mandolin, Scott Coney on guitar and Tim Dishman on bass. Ronnie Bowman and Don Rigsby (Justin Bieber?) sang harmony with Jackson.
Not too shabby…
If we can find a higher quality video, we’ll post that. Updated with new video.
The entire episode can be viewed in hi-res video on the CBS web site. This performance is at the final marker in the video timeline.
