Florida residents were blown away by a quaint street performer that had a powerful gift nobody saw coming!
Known by his street name “Country,” the underestimated musician introduced his following performance by admitting, “My daddy used to sing this to me when I was a little boy in a ’49 Ford when he’d listen to the Grand Ole Opry… I didn’t learn to play until I was 14.”
With that, he jumped into his stellar performance of Hank Williams‘ timeless classic “Hey Good Lookin’.” Putting a quirky spin on the tune, Country was as vibrant as can be while giving his crowd an upbeat performance.
“I got a hot rod Ford and a two dollar bill/ And I know a spot right over the hill/ There’s soda pop [inaudible] that’ll blow your mind/ So if you want to have fun come along with me,” he happily sang.
Country kept his audience deeply entertained and fixated on his unforgettable performance, earning an applause and cheers from his shocked fans, who were stopped in their tracks because of his undeniable talent. The original tune was recorded in 1951 by Williams, and it was such an iconic number that his recording was ultimately inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame back in 2001.
