Watch Gregg Allman & The National Team Up for Colbert Christmas Carols
Stephen Colbert is celebrating “Christmas Carol Week” this week on The Colbert Report, kicking things off last night (December 16) with a collaboration between Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Gregg Allman and indie rock band the National.
Allman switched off on lead vocals with the National’s frontman Matt Berninger and Colbert on the classic holiday track “Silver Bells.” Berninger’s deep baritone blended held its own with Allman’s classic bluesy vocals. Meanwhile, Colbert assisted on harmonies, not to mention an intriguing yet questionable spoken-word portion mid-song.
