Week In Tweedy: Colbert, Letterman, Farm Aid 25
Busy last few days for Jeff Tweedy. Farm Aid’s 25th Anniversary show took place Saturday, with Dave Matthews, Norah Jones, and Jeff Tweedy joining Willie Nelson and John Mellencamp for the annual awareness-raising concert. Tweedy performed solo, and dedicated “I’m The Man Who Loves You” from Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, to his wife.
Earlier this week Tweedy backed Mavis Staples for her performances on the Colbert Report and the Late Show. She and Tweedy brought the title track from her new, Tweedy-produced album, You Are Not Alone, to Colbert, who also interviews the pair before — definitely worth watching, because Staples is awesome. For Letterman they covered Credence Clearwater Revival’s “Wrote a Song For Everyone.”
