See Jason Isbell Play a Tattooed Preacher on ‘Squidbillies’

Grammy winner voices comical character on the Cartoon Network show

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 above, 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.

“Don’t get me wrong; I’m thankful for God’s shining light,” he says, gesturing toward the hole in the building’s roof. “Just not in our sanctuary.” The clip ends there, with Early Cuyler sending a shotgun blast into the ceiling out of excitement.

Since airing its first episodes in 2005, Squidbillies has made room for cameo appearances by a long list of Americana artists, including Elizabeth Cook, the Drive-By Truckers, Lucinda Williams, Todd Snider and David Allan Coe.
