Jimmy Kimmel’s Masked Country Singer

I just happened to stumble upon this video from Jimmy Kimmel’s Monday (04/18/22) show.  I had honestly never heard of Orville Peck.  This Lone Ranger looking fellah is performing a song of his new album, “Bronco”.  The song is called “C’mon Baby, Cry”.  It’s really good and it makes me wonder…why the mask schtick?
