John Prine Brings Sturgill Simpson & Brandi Carlile To Colbert

That’s some fire power.

John Prine released Tree of Forgiveness on Friday, his first album of new original songs in 13 years. He stopped by Colbert to perform “Summer’s End,” but he brought along Sturgill Simpson and Brandi Carlile for some all-star added support.

We’ve haven’t seen much from Sturgill lately, but with this performance, and his recent SNL appearance with Chris Stapleton, he’s been making the late-night rounds. While I patiently wait for that new album he’s been working on, I’ll take Sturgill wherever I can get him.
