Watch Ryan Adams Play Conan
Ryan Adams has been getting some mileage out of “Shine Through The Dark,” a song he originally recorded for the 2011 benefit comp Live From Nowhere Near You and re-recorded for the soundtrack to Judd Apatow’s new flick, This Is 40. Considering Adams has hundreds of hours of unreleased music clogging up hard-drive space, I’m a little surprised he didn’t contribute something new-new to the movie, but it’s hard to complain when the song is as good as this one. Last night, Ryno played it on Conan with Don Was on bass and Cindy Cashdollar on dobro, and man, it’s nothing short of beautiful. Watch.
