Watch Ryan Adams Do “Lucky Now” On Letterman

On last night’s episode of the Late Show With David Letterman, Ryan Adams came through to perform the exact same lovely solo-acoustic version of “Lucky Now” that he’s already done on a few other shows: Same tricolor guitar, same quilted leather jacket, same unassumingly great song. Except this time, he didn’t wear a T-shirt advertising an ’80s metal band — or if he did, the logo was below his guitar, so I couldn’t see it. Watch it below. And as a bonus, we’ve also got video of Adams playing the Heartbreaker classic “Winding Wheel” live in studio for KCRW. He plays a different guitar and everything!

Adams’s new album Ashes & Fire is out now on Pax-Am/Capitol, and it made our year-end list.
