After all, it isn’t often that a country music artist is tapped to host Saturday Night Live. Almost never, actually. Johnny Cash did it. So did Willie, Dolly, and Garth.
Now, it’s McGraw’s time. He is set to take the reins this weekend as the first country artist of the millennium to host the sketch comedy series, just one week before he appears alongside Vince Vaughn and Reece Witherspoon in the new film Four Christmases on November 26.
“I’m looking forward to hosting the show,” said McGraw. “I’m not exactly known for my comedy, but then again, if you’ve been to one of my shows, you might feel differently. Hopefully hanging around Vince Vaugh, Reese Witherspoon, and Jon Favreau is good training.”
No, the Dancehall Doctors will not be there; Ludacris and T-Pain are handling the musical guest duties. No, I don’t know if Faith is going to be there or not, though it would be cool. I’ll be watching to see what happens, just like you guys, so I'll see you at the show...sorta.
