Country music talents Vince Gill, who was born in Norman and raised in Oklahoma City, and Paul Franklin, his bandmate in the 11-piece Western swing supergroup The Time Jumpers, will be the musical guests tonight on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” which airs at 10:35 p.m. weekdays on NBC.

Gill and Franklin will play the late Buck Owens’ classic “Together Again,” one of the cuts from their excellent 2013 collaborative album “Bakersfield,” which pays tribute to Owens and Merle Haggard.

Leslie Mann and David Koechner also will be Leno’s guests tonight.
