Jason Isbell Appears in Cartoon Network Show 'Squidbillies'

Rolling Stone Country reports: "Nearly five years after recording his own version of the Squidbillies theme song, Jason Isbell is working with the Cartoon Network program once again, this time as a guest star. Isbell voices a new character, pastor Kyle Nubbins, in the season 10 finale, which airs this Sunday, August 21st at 11:30 p.m. ET.  In the clip [here], Isbell's hip preacher — complete with pomaded hair, decorative wrist cuff and a Jesus tat — welcomes the Culyer family to a backwoods church in Appalachian country. He's excited about the job, even if the church itself leaves something to be desired."

New Lambchop Album Due November

Uncut reports: "Lambchop have announced details of their new studio album, FLOTUS. The album is due on November 4 on City Slang. The album is called For Love Often Turns Us Still – FLOTUS – and the band have shared the first track from the album, “The Hustle”, which you can hear [here]. “My wife and I attended this wedding of one her college friends in the countryside outside of Nashville,” says Kurt Wagner. “Weddings are a heady mix of emotions, memories, and events that can be quite rich in imagery. With this being a Quaker wedding, there was a lack of “officiating” in that the bride and groom addressed each other directly the entire time. This was something that I found to be most touching. Beyond that, as with much of my writing, I tend to describe experiences in an almost journalistic fashion and then strip things down till there is barely a thread to hold them together—in this case, starting with the vows and then moving on from there. The entire wedding party was doing this great synchronized dance step that I hadn’t seen before. I asked my wife what dance it was, and she told me it was the Hustle. She suggested I join them. I respectfully declined.”"
