Shotgun Holler on CMT

Josh Wolf with Shotgun Holler on The Josh Wolf ShowIt’s a long way from Harlan County, Kentucky to the bright lights and big city ways of Los Angeles, CA. But bluegrass boys Shotgun Holler made the trip out to Culver City and the Sony TV Studios for an appearance last week on The Josh Wolf Show, CMT’s new addition to the late night talk show format.

Wolf was selected for a late night hosting slot by CMT, based on his popularity on E’s Chelsea Handler Show, and his appearance as a late night host during the 2014 Shark Week on Discovery where he hosted Shark After Dark. His show debuted in June, airing Thursdays through Sundays at 11:00 p.m.

Shotgun Holler was invited on for the host’s special musical segment, Guilty Pleasure Songs, and they performed a grassified version of Miley Cyrus’ Wrecking Ball.


Previous guests on Wolf’s show have included Jewel performing a song from the Backstreet Boys, and Clint Black singing one of Katy Perry’s. The cross-genre paradox seems to be his thing.

And no… Wrecking Ball is not included on the band’s new Lonesome Day Record’s release, Loaded. The studio audience sure enjoyed it, though.

Should they have done it in B?
