Sturgill Simpson Hangs Out with Stephen Colbert at the Waffle House


If you thought Sturgill Simpson’s and Stephen Colbert’s Waffle House duet “No Shirt, No Shoes, No Knuckleheads” was funny when they debuted it on national television in April, then the second installment will split your sides.

After the Sturgill / Colbert duet, the talk show host discovered that in Waffles Houses there are juke boxes featuring songs about the Waffle House. So in a segment that aired Thursday evening (6-30) on Late Night, Stephen Colbert and Sturgill Simpson visited the very Waffle House in Charleston, South Carolina that Colbert frequented as a young (and likely, drunk) adult to debut the song.

After the two do some bits with the Waffle House regulars they find in attendance, they throw a red carpet ceremony to debut their song on the restaurant’s Touch Tunes machine. If nothing else, the segment shows off a funny side to Sturgill Simpson rarely seen, and some acting chops that are not half bad.

Sturgill Simpson is current entering the European leg on his world tour behind his new record A Sailor’s Guide to Earth.
