See Blanco Brown Sing ‘The Git Up’ on ‘Kimmel’
Country-rap artist also performs “Funky Tonk” from his new album ‘Honeysuckle & Lightning Bugs’
Blanco Brown made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Wednesday, performing a medley of tunes from his new album Honeysuckle & Lightning Bugs that included the hit “The Git Up.”
Backed only by his DJ, Brown began the performance with “Funky Tonk,” a track from the new album that pits speedily picked acoustic guitar runs against Brown’s rapid-fire rhymes. “Mama always told me that if you gotta make sure/Then you better make sure/That you make the best of your mistakes,” he sings, recalling some words of encouragement and advice from when he was growing up. Mid-song, his DJ transitions to the now-familiar looped pedal steel from “The Git Up,” causing the crowd to erupt in screams of appreciation.
