If you can't get enough of Leslie Jordan's hilarious hot takes on Instagram, you're in luck: He's got a new gig!

The 65-year-old Will & Grace actor will soon host his own show, Hunker Down Radio with Leslie Jordan, on Apple Music Country. The hour-long show — available for free or on-demand on Apple Music — launches Sunday, Feb. 28 at 2 p.m. ET and will air weekly.

In addition to opening up about his life on the show, the Chattanooga, Tennessee, native — along with his co-host, Nashville songwriter Travis Howard — will no doubt give listeners some of his signature sassy one-liners, as well as deliver playlists filled with country, gospel and blues tracks.

"I've done Broadway. I was in The Help. I've done feature films. I've done so much television. I've done every god-awful sitcom known to man, forever, for 30 or 40 years. I've never done a radio show," he says in Hunker Down Radio's debut episode.

The LGBTQ icon found a massive new audience in 2020, after his confessional Instagram videos went viral in the early weeks of the COVID-19 pandemic.

"People knew me from my characters, but I'm amazed that, people discovered me as me," Jordan recently told PEOPLE. "They loved me. And they came back."

Up next, the comedian will release his debut album Company's Comin' — a star-studded collection of hymnal duets with Brandi Carlile, TJ Osborne and more — on April 2.
