Mainstream country megastar and Miranda Lambert’s husband, Blake Shelton, hosts Saturday Night Live this weekend. That got us to thinking. What Texas/Red Dirt/Americana artist would make the best SNL host? Here are a few names that came up in our discussions:
-Drew Kennedy. Enough dry wit and storytelling prowess to make Steven Wright crack a smile.
-Granger Smith. Long before Earl, there was Nigel.
-Willy Braun. The scene’s ultimate prankster would have some sly tricks up his sleeve.
-Jack Ingram. Seems like he’d be game for whatever the writers threw at him and be able to deliver.
-Doug Moreland. Funniest person in the scene. Already crushed The Tonight Show a decade ago.
-Mike McClure. Could go method and lend an Andy Kaufman-esque vibe to the proceedings.
-Matt Hillyer. Funny guy, would give it 100% and has some acting experience.
If you were Lorne Michaels and looking to cast from this scene, who would you choose?
