After getting situated, Adams took up his tri-tone Americana axe and harmonica headpiece and went right into a solemn rendition of 'Oh, My Sweet Carolina' from his landmark debut album 'Heartbreaker.'

"I'm stoked to even play in here. This is super awesome, right? My favorite show on television, hands down, is the 'Letterman' show specifically because it's just absurd," he said.

Adams then gave a critic's evaluation of the old CBS show, delving into the problems of "Booger" from 'Better Off Dead' (he was referring to actor Curtis Armstrong, who played booger in 'Revenge of the Nerds') joining the cast and why he spent a bunch of cash to get the wrong vinyl version of the 'Moonlighting' soundtrack. What do you think of the singer-songwriter's return to the spotlight?
