HITS Daily Double


Columbia artist Leon Bridges' appearance at the Newport Folk Festival over the weekend has generated some definite buzz. The soul revivalist appeared as part of bandleader Jon Batiste's star-studded "A Change Is Gonna Come" set devoted to songs about social change. Bridges joined Batiste and Gary Clark, Jr. for a powerful rendition of the Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young protest anthem "Ohio" as part of a lineup that Grammy.com dubbed "spectacular."

The Mick Management-repped Bridges (pictured at left with Batiste) joined Clark and Batiste last year for a recording of "Ohio," which you can check out below. Bridges' sophomore Columbia album, Good Thing, had its Top 5 debut in May.

In other news from Newport, some attendees there continue to be pissed about Dylan going electric.
