He will be performing his song “Boomer” from “Live Forever” on Meyers’ show. (The album version of that song has some strong language in it, but you can view the video below if you’re OK with that.)
Strange was due to play at the 2020 Norman Music Festival before it was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. Hopefully, he will be able to make a return tip to Oklahoma when live music makes a comeback.
