On Wednesday night’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, the singer explained to the talk-show host that he’s written the new theme song “for a popular cable show.” Turns out it’s for—yep—you know who.
Paisley gets in some truly inspired lyrical matter in “The Ballad of Honey Boo Boo,” including such gems as “She's on the loose/Filled with balls of cheese and go-go juice” and "An American hero down to the core/She eats her meals right off the floor.” He also intersperses himself into actual clips from the show, with equally hysterical results.
“It’s very exciting,” Paisley noted to Kimmel of the song, straightfaced. See if you can remain that way yourself after watching the video.
Paisley also announced the title of his upcoming album on the show. It’ll be called Wheelhouse, and will hit the streets on April 9.
