Russell Dickerson is expanding his on-screen resume. The singer will appear on an episode of FOX sitcom Call Me Kat on Thursday night (May 4), and instead of a character, the singer will play himself.

"I was super nervous at first, like playing my first concert all over again," Dickerson says of making his acting debut, "But the cast and crew were so welcoming and made it such an incredible experience. I could absolutely see myself acting more!"

According to a press release, the episode — which is called "Call Me a Donut Wall" — will find Dickerson showing up in a storyline surrounding series regular Max. He'll offer Max, who's played by Cheyenne Jackson, a life-changing career opportunity.

Call Me Kat stars Mayim Bialik in the titular role. At the time of his death in October 2022, Leslie Jordan played a character named Phil in the show. In an early January episode, the show compiled a montage of appearances from stars to pay tribute to Jordan; one of them was Dolly Parton.

Though it's Dickerson's first time dipping his toes into the world of acting, he's no stranger to the screen. Most recently, he performed his latest single, "God Gave Me a Girl," on Today. That song — a personal message to the singer's wife, Kailey — went to radio late in 2022. It's the newest single off his self-titled third album, which he released in November 2022.

Dickerson and Kailey, who are already parents to 2-year-old Remington, announced earlier this month that they're expecting their second baby boy this fall. The exciting news comes after Kailey shared that she suffered a miscarriage in 2022.

Best Country Albums of 2022 - Critic's Picks

This list of country music's best albums from 2022 separates artists who aim to make great albums from those simply looking to record great songs. Only one artist found below notched a solo No. 1 country airplay hit this year. Popularity doesn't always equal quality.

It’s not that albums from country music’s most notable hitmakers aren’t any good. Count Luke Combs and Thomas Rhett as strong honorable mentions for this list but both were edged out by a group that in some ways didn’t have to worry about the confines of commercial success. Randy Houser and Muscadine Bloodline are independant artists. American Aquarium is too and Ashley McBryde released the sort of album you’d expect from an indy act. 

The lesson is country fans need to look deeper for the most daring, creative music of 2022.
