Jeff Bridges will continue his media blitz in support of his new country rock album Jeff Bridges on tonight's episode of The Colbert Report. It's unclear whether or not the veteran actor will perform a song on the show – he may end up spending most of his time with Stephen Colbert chatting about The Big Lebowski, since he just reunited with the full cast of the movie in New York – but he'll definitely touch on his career in music. If you're dying to hear his play live, though, you can check out the set he performed here at the Rolling Stone office earlier this week.

Vanessa Carlton - Conan, TBS 11:00 p.m.

Jeff Bridges - The Colbert Report, Comedy Central 11:30 p.m.

The Band Perry - Jimmy Kimmel Live, ABC 12:00 a.m.

“Long Walk Home”

Bruce Springsteen | 2007

When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
