It's been said that Fort Worth singer Leon Bridges has had one hell of a year, and this weekend, Bridges and his band topped it off with an appearance on Saturday Night Live

Leon Bridges is a sensation — but it didn’t happen overnight

Not a bad way to wrap up 2015, if we do say so.

With actor Ryan Gosling as host on Dec. 5, Bridges performed the funk-infused "Smooth Sailin'" and beautiful gospel tune "River" before the live studio audience. Both tunes were released on the musician's acclaimed debut album, Coming Home, which was recently named one of the year's best albums by Rolling Stone.

Peep Saturday's performances, as well, as the full episode below.
