Gillian Welch 'The Way It Goes' on 'Conan'

Singer-songwriter performs 'The Way It Goes'

Singer-songwriter Gillian Welch turned up on last night's episode of Conan to perform "The Way It Goes," a bleak country-folk ballad from her latest album The Harrow & The Harvest. Despite the darkness of the tune, Welch couldn't help but smile several times during the performance, perhaps from the excitement of being on the show, or simply from the pleasure of hearing her own song's delicate, gorgeous guitar harmonies.
