Ryan Adams performed an acoustic version of “Gimme Something Good” last night on The Late Late Show, which was guest hosted by Judd Apatow. He was accompanied by legendary musician Don Was for a somber rendition of the Ryan Adams track.

“Gimme Something Good” is the first track from Ryan Adams’ 2014 self-titled release,
