Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has been the spirit of throwbacks lately and he keeps adding to his Instagram collection with another flashback about a story where he thought he could make some money singing country music. Yeah, no joke! We all know he can sing based on Disney’s ‘Moana’, but this was a bit of a surprise!
Take a look at his post below that was uploaded with the following caption,
A lil’ flashback to the iconic honky tonk I used to hang out in when I was 15 years old.
The one and only @tootsies_orchid_lounge 🎶🥃
I grew up loving traditional country, blues and hip hop – but when I was 15 living in a lil’ motel room in Nashville – just me and a buddy of mine – I thought I could be a decent country music singer to make a little money not be broke 💵 🎤
A woman heard me singing in a grocery store (true story) and told me I should go down to Broad street and try and sing in one of the honky tonks to get noticed.
So that’s what I did.
Keep in mind I was 15, but I actually looked 57 😂🤦🏽♂️
One night at a one of country bars, I bought a car from a crackhead for $40 bucks (original agreement was $75:) – and that beat up Thunderbird turned out to be stolen, of course – and about a month later we were forced out of Nashville.
Wound up moving to the great Commonwealth of Pennsylvania (Bethlehem) where I would FINALLY, get my wayward ass on the right track to become a productive young man.
And though my 15yr old dream of become a country music legend, never came true… years later, my buddy – the GOAT Willie Nelson would gift me my very first guitar.
Which I learned to play pretty well. Didn’t matter anyway because I proudly sing in raspy keys that don’t exist
