T-Pain Covers Squidbillies Theme For Season Five Finale
Press Release from Adult Swim
Rusty dreams of becoming a trucker, but Early shows him how tough a life on the road can be in “Trucked Up,” the season finale of Squidbillies airing Sunday, Nov. 13 at 11:45 p.m. (ET, PT) on Adult Swim.
Always the supportive parent, Early tells Rusty he’s not fit for the big rigs. But how would Early know so much about truckin’? Well, just over a week ago, Early was “The Scrambler,” an infamous truck driver responsible for the biggest environmental disaster in the history of the state. Always up for a challenge, all the Scrambler needed to hear was that something couldn’t be done – and then he’d go for it. Knowing this, Dan Halen enlisted the Scrambler to drive truckloads full of toxic waste all the way to Paris, France causing damage of untold proportions. Early projects his own shortcomings onto his poor son, and Granny tells Rusty that “truckin’ ain’t nothin’ but a pipe dream.” Reluctantly, Rusty goes back to gluing googly eyes on pinecones, knowing he’ll be stuck with his dysfunctional backwoods family forever.
Country music legend Billy Joe Shaver is back and bigger than ever, lending his voice talents as the announcer for the “Trucker Tuesday Marathon” and as the customs agent at the Mexican border. Fans with a good ear will recognize Shaver’s voice singing the original Squidbillies theme. Watch behind-the-scenes footage of Billy Joe Shaver as he confronts Early over some questionable cargo. Hip hop hit-maker T-Pain also makes a return appearance, this time covering the theme song.
