It’s been an incredible week for Keb’ Mo’. On Saturday, he played two new songs from ‘BLUESAmericana’ (released April 22 on Kind of Blue Music) on CBS This Morning’s “Saturday Sessions.” Yesterday, the album debuted at #1 on the Billboard Blues chart, #2 on the Billboard Folk chart, and #8 on Billboard’s Independent Albums chart, after reaching the top of the Amazon Best Sellers chart.

Keb’ will return to TV on May 14 with a performance on the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, capping an LA run that includes an album release event LA’s GRAMMY Museum (5/14, already sold out!), and an appearance alongside Metallica at MusiCares’ 10th Annual MAP Fund Benefit Concert at Club Nokia honoring Ozzy Osbourne and Jeff Greenberg (5/12).
