The Sheepdogs will begin their victory lap tonight on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, where they will be introduced as the winners of the Choose the Cover of Rolling Stone contest. In addition to chatting with Fallon about winning the big prize, the boogie rockers from Saskatoon will also perform at the end of the program.

The last time the 'Dogs stopped by Late Night, they were game for a very amusing Battle of the Bands in which they faced off against runner-up Lelia Broussard in a contest to write the best song about a member of the show's studio audience. The guys may end up doing something even sillier this time around, so tune in to NBC at 12:35 a.m. to see what happens.

Song Stories

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
