The actor, best known for his goofy roles in Talladega Nights and Boogie Nights, has recorded two trad country tunes for White’s Third Man label.

It’s not such a huge surprise, since he sang razor-sharp parodies of classic tunes in his music mock biopic Walk Hard and also sang in Chicago.

The first single is a duet with Becky Stark of country-pop group Lavender Diamond, a cover of ‘50s Texan country star Ray Price’s ‘I’ll Be There If You Ever Want’.

The other single is a tune with folkie Tom Brousseau, a cover of the Delmore Brothers ‘Gonna Lay Down My Old Guitar’, a snippet of which is embedded below.

Both songs will be available to download on iTunes, or buy on vinyl from Third Man, on November 29.
