This year’s presidential election has been one of the most controversial in history. Now, it seems as though there is finally a presidential ticket that can truly bring people together.
Legendary singer-songwriter John Prine’s label Oh Boy Records is selling a shirt that advertises Prine as a presidential candidate. Fellow Americana talent and friend Jason Isbell has also been tapped for the Vice President position. So what’s their campaign slogan? “Blow up your TV,” the timely line from Prine’s classic tune, “Spanish Pipedream.”
Unfortunately, it is my journalistic duty to tell you that this isn’t a real campaign. Although I can confidently say that these two would get my vote any day.
You can snag your Prine/Isbell shirt for just $30 right here. If you can’t get enough of this talented twosome, act fast. A few tickets are still on sale for the duo’s upcoming New Year’s Eve show with special guest Kacey Musgraves at Nashville’s Grand Ole Opry House. Tickets for this star-studded concert range in price from $75-250, and are available via ryman.com.
And if you’re looking for something to drown out the echoes of tonight’s presidential debate, give Prine’s brand new duets album, For Better or Worse, a listen.
