Gary Clark Jr. is set to perform on "The Night That Changed America: A GRAMMY® Salute To The Beatles"- a two-hour special that celebrates the group's legacy and the 50th "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" anniversary of their first appearance on "The Ed Sullivan Show."
Clark will perform the George Harrison-penned classic with The Eagles' Joe Walsh and Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl.
Footage above is of Gary Clark Jr. and Alicia Keys performing the Beatles classic.
So the part that Eric Clapton usually plays and that Prince killed at the 2004 Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame will now be Gary's to play at the event. Kind of a big deal.
The show will be broadcast in HDTV and 5.1 surround sound on CBS on Sunday, Feb. 9, from 8 - 10 p.m. ET/PT - exactly 50 years to the day, date, and time of the original event.
Gary is heading out on tour with Kings Of Leon this week. For tour dates, click here....
