Leslie Jordan, beloved actor (Will & Grace, Hearts Afire), comedian, and pandemic-era social media star, premieres “Hunker Down Radio,” a new show on Apple Music Country, on Sunday, February 28th.

Leslie, along with hit country music songwriter Travis Howard, brings his quick-witted Southern humor to the show. Each one-hour episode gives a glimpse into Leslie’s life while serving up a hearty dose of country, gospel, and blues, “guaranteed to lift your spirits and make you feel like you’re part of the family,” according to the press release.
