Mariah on American Dad

Mariah Carey Brings Texas Twang to ‘American Dad’

Mariah Carey is trading her New York accent for a Southern twang. The pop diva plays a character far from her self on Fox’s animated series “American Dad.”

In the episode, which airs Sunday at 9:30 p.m., Mariah stars as a Texas gal named Laura, who invites Stan to join her and her husband’s Thanksgiving football tailgate after his plans go awry.

On December 4, Mariah will celebrate the holidays by performing on NBC’s “Christmas in Rockefeller Center” alongside fellow divas Mary J. Blige, Toni Braxton, and Ariana Grande.

Watch MC fire up the grill and serve up some Southern twang in the sneak peek below.
