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

Add another to the long list of late-night stages to host Fort Worth musician Leon Bridges.

The breakout star performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live Tuesday night, showcasing his funky side with "Twistin' and Groovin'," as well as his soulful side with gospel ballad "River." 

Both tunes come from Bridges' acclaimed debut album, Coming Home.

Bridges has previously performed on The Late Show with Jimmy Fallon, the Late Late Show with James Corden, NPR's Tiny Desk Concert and Saturday Night Live with Ryan Gosling. Oh and he's up for a Grammy. How's that for a resume? 

Bridges hit Kimmel fresh off a touring stint Down Under, where he collaborated with Texas bluesman Gary Clark Jr., and isn't stopping anytime soon. He's slated for another trip across the pond to Europe and then the festival circuit, including appearances at Hangout Music Festival in Alabama and Sasquatch Music Festival in Washington in May. 

At least he took a minute to slow down while on Jimmy Kimmel Live:
