Here's something you don't see everyday: It's Nashville-by-way-of-Murfreesboro-by-way-of-the-moon's own Richie Kirkpatrick backing up Jessica Lea Mayfield during the (nearly local-by-default) Ohio songstress' network television debut — from last Friday's episode of The Late Show With David Letterman. Train your aminal eyes on the clip above above to see Kirkpatrick complement Mayfield's "Our Hearts Are Wrong" — a pretty sick jam, if I may say so myself — with some nasty tone and dirty distortion as he picks the gee-tar with the deft touch of his Ghostfingers. Good gig — it's great to see someone's out there givin' him money, you know, so he can get high. Anyway, Letterman says he enjoyed the performance "considerably," while Paul Schaffer "loved it" — now you should too.
Side note: Mayfield's older brother David (on keyboards) looks kinda like a cross between Chris Scruggs and Matisyahu, don'tcha think?
