Cougar Town Announces Its Final Season Premiere Date In a Catchy New Music Video

Yahoo! Music News - Fri, 11/07/2014 - 02:11

Cougar Town Announces Its Final Season Premiere Date In a Catchy New Music VideoI hope you've stocked up on vino, because Cougar Town's farewell tour is about to begin. And to kick it off, the Cul-de-Sac Crew has written a literal swan song and released a new music video that reveals when the sixth and final season will debut. The super catchy "One Last Pour" is performed by star Josh Hopkins and almost guaranteed to get stuck in your head. Plus, as a bonus for longtime fans of the wine-soaked comedy, it recalls tons of great inside jokes from previous seasons (see: finger guns, Penny Can) and even squeezes in a jab at former network ABC for canceling the series before its time. My only complaint? Notably absent from most of the video is Brian Van Holt (a.k.a. Bobby Cobb), who is leaving the series after the Season 6 premiere. Perhaps his impending departure has to do with a certain mystery man on Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.? Anyway, hit play to check it out! Pssst for those of you who didn't watch, Cougar Town's final season debuts Tuesday, January 6 on TBS.

Luke Bryan speaks in the press room after receiving 'Entertainer of the Year' award, during the 48th annual CMA awards at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee, on November 5, 2014Luke Bryan was named Wednesday the Country Music Association entertainer of the year, the first time the award has gone to the star known for his alcohol-infused ballads. While the Georgia-born singer took home the most prestigious prize at the awards in Nashville, the biggest medal haul went to Miranda Lambert, whose "Platinum" won album of the year and who scored the top single with "Automatic." For entertainer of the year, Bryan beat out a crowd that included Lambert, her husband and fellow country giant Blake Shelton, and 62-year-old legend George Strait, who took home the top prize the previous year. "Drink A Beer," a song off Bryan's latest album, touches on the loss as he recounts watching the sunset and savoring a brew by himself as he once would have done with his siblings.
