Grammy Award-winning musician, Billy Strings, stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night (October 25) and performed his signature heart-pumping acoustic bluegrass music for a rendition of the song, “Red Daisy.”

Watch the performance for the song from Strings’ album, Renewal, below.

Of Renewal, which Strings released earlier this year, the guitar player recently said in a statement, “I listen to this album now and it’s emotional. I could sit there and tweak it forever, but there’s a point where it’s like building a house of cards. Yeah, I could add an extra tower on top, but it might collapse. I’ve always doubted myself, and I still do, but this album makes me think, ‘Hey, you’re doing all right, kid. You just need to keep going.’”  

Strings, who won a Grammy last year for Best Bluegrass Album for his 2019 album, Home, also performed two songs from the album recently on Austin City Limits, along with friend Sarah Jarosz. You can see it in full here.
