Ryan Adams is fairly active on Twitter, and a recent online interaction has lead to some interesting results, as the singer-songwriter has released a new tune inspired by his fan and local Denver news anchor Shannon Ogden, who will actually welcome Adams to his Denver7 program for a weather segment tonight.
Adams’ new song—“Denver7 (Piece of Heaven),” off the “album” Breaking News and supported by the “label” TheDenverChannel.com Records—is described by Adams as “smooth rap” and feels like one of his signature improvised tunes about audience members or other impromptu topics that he sometimes comes up with during his shows. During the song, Adams repeatedly pleads for Denver7 to let him come on and do the weather. And tonight, June 13, he gets his wish.
Adams is in Colorado for his performance at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, which is set for tomorrow night. Catch the “special guest meteorologist” tonight at 5pm MT on Denver7, and hear “Denver7” in the accompanying animated video below.
