Luke Bryan, Alicia Keys Set for NBC’s “The Tonight Show”

In the wake of Taylor Swift’s decision to firmly situate herself in the pop community, there is no longer any doubt: Luke Bryan is the biggest name in country music.

It is thus fair to claim that the biggest name in country music is coming to “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.”

NBC announced that Bryan, whose latest single “Roller Coaster” is already in the Top 5 at country radio, will perform on the Wednesday, September 10 edition of “The Tonight Show.” Hugh Jackman and Nick Offerman will serve as the night’s interview guests.

Earlier in the week, Alicia Keys will join The Roots for a performance. NBC’s latest “Tonight Show” listings follow:

Wednesday, September 3: Guests include Blake Shelton, Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim and musical guest Blake Shelton. Sheila E. sits-in with The Roots. Show 0116.
