Schieffer & Snow: The Music Men?

Our own Bob Schieffer will be in the spotlight tonight, showing an admirable amount of pluck -- and pluckin':
Tonight's the big Battle of the Bands showdown between CBS's Bob Schieffer and White House Press Secretary Tony Snow at the National Press Club. Schieffer performs with the band Honky Tonk Confidential, and Snow rocks out with Beats Workin'. The two will take to the stage and see who wins the Club's first ever "Crawlin' Kingsnake Trophy."

Snow's even bringing in a ringer: Jeff "Skunk" Baxter (of Steely Dan & Doobie Brothers fame) will join Beats Workin', and the band has tweaked some of its arrangements in order to give Baxter maximum guitar shredding time.

Schieffer will unveil a brand-new song, called "A Dark and Stormy Night"...

Who knows? Maybe in a rare display of Washington harmony, they'll actually sing together...
