Team Coco Premieres “Changes” Video

For years I have fantasized about singing with a gospel group. I’ve been aching to do something different lately, to experiment in ways that I haven’t before. All in the name of peeling back the layers to reveal the fruit. I’ve also been spending a lot of time in New Orleans – lots of fruit there. About a month ago, I decided I wanted to make a video for the song Changes and asked Casey McAllister (keys in The Law) if he knew any gospel singers in town. He sent me a list of names – Topsy Chapman & Solid Harmony was the first group on it. We called, Topsy answered, and it was on. Topsy said she wasn’t just a gospel singer – she sang everything, and was ready to roll when we were. A week later, my dear friend Joel Sadler (La Blogothèque, Pink House Sessions) met us at the First Presbyterian Church in New Orleans, and we brought the fantasy to life. Deep love and gratitude to everyone involved in creating this, and a million thank yous to Conan O’Brien & Team Coco for premiering it. It was an honor to sing and perform with these beautiful folks – We hope it moves you.

Introducing….the Stetson x Langhorne

Dear friends,
It’s with great pleasure that I reveal to you a wild dream come true. About a year ago this time, I met up with the legendary Stetson hat company and expressed to them a deep and somewhat giddy desire to design a hat someday. To my surprise, they replied, ‘Cool, tell us more.’ I told them about a magical hat that I once owned. I found it in a second hand shop in Oregon and wore it almost every day for about two years – I loved that hat.  Upon leaving for a tour one morning, I decided to leave it behind in Nashville.  While gone, a flood hit Tennessee and took with it what it wanted, including my hat.  I imagined the beautiful black brim floating down a river somewhere, or perhaps finding its way to the bottom. I wanted in part to bring that hat back to life. I also told them that I’d dreamt of a hat that was part Charlie Chaplin, part Buster Keaton, part Huck Finn, and part Oliver Twist – and that if you added all those delicious ingredients together, you’d wind up with the perfect hat.  When I stopped talking, they looked at me for a few moments and said, incredibly, ‘Let’s do it.’  Sometimes you just have to ask. I’m so glad I did because we made that hat and now we’ve got 300 limited edition brims to offer you. It’s the hat of my dreams, and I’m truly honored to present it to you here. Ladies and gents, the Stetson x Langhorne!


Let’s see yours: #StetsonxLanghorne

People premieres “Deck the Halls”

I’m very happy to have my version of “Deck the Halls (With Boughs of Holly)” premiere today on – it’s inspired by Little Jimmy Thomas. I wanted to sing something that would make an old lady dance, so here it is – and happy almost holidays! Stream the track here.
