Did Trisha Yearwood Give Matthew McConaughey His Start? [VIDEO]

Fresh off Matthew McConaughey’s Oscar win, this video seems to be making the rounds!

You probably know Trisha Yearwood’s “Walkaway Joe” by heart, but do you remember the actor who played Walkaway Joe?

That’s right, a young Matthew McConaughey. Trisha told People.com:

He was cast from local talent in Austin, Tex., where the footage was shot. The performance with Don Henley was shot in Nashville, so I never met Matthew. About 10 years ago, we were both at the Grammys and trying to connect but we kept missing each other – he was backstage when I was in the audience, and vice-versa.

From a fresh faced 23 year old in a country music video to an Oscar-winning actor…not too shabby. Trisha also added, ”…if he ever wants to be in another Trisha Yearwood video, I won’t make him audition.”
