From top celebrities to everyday folks, Oklahomans and Oklahoma stay in the entertainment headlines. Here’s six times they’ve made show business news over the past week or so:

Bartees Strange makes late-night TV debut tonight

Bartees Strange – a musician and activist who was born in Britain, raised in Oklahoma and is now based in Washington, D.C. – earned national interest and widespread acclaim with his debut album, “Live Forever,” released last fall via Memory Music.

Now, Strange, who hails from Mustang, is getting the chance to make make his national late-night television debut: He will be the musical guest tonight on “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” which airs at 11:35 p.m. weekdays on NBC.

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.
