NOBLESVILLE, Ind. (TheBlaze/AP) — Television host and former CBS News anchor Katie Couric is no brown-eyed girl, but she can hold her own singing backup for Jimmy Buffett.
The ABC newswoman and TV personality joined Buffett on stage for several songs Tuesday during a concert in Noblesville, Ind., about 20 miles northeast of Indianapolis.
Couric told WRTV-TV in Indianapolis that she thought it would be a fun, visual “little fling.”
Buffett, who covered and often performs the Van Morrison classic “Brown-eyed Girl” at his shows, says Couric can sing and thinks her performance could be the start of a new career for her.
“She can sing. So, it could be a career starting move for her,” Buffett said. “I don’t think it’s going to be a career-ending move for me.”
Couric has other plans. She’ll launch a new daytime talk show titled “Katie” on Sept. 10. Footage from the event will be featured in the new show.
