The ‘Joe’ in Trisha Yearwood’s ‘Walkaway Joe’ Video is Matthew McConaughey

Before he became an Oscar winner, a 23 year-old Matthew McConaughey starred in Trisha Yearwood‘s video for ‘Walkaway Joe,’ playing the role of ‘Joe.’

Yearwood tells People.com, McConaughey had to audition for the part.

"‘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.’"

I bet he won’t have to audition again, if he ever chooses to be in another video for Yearwood.

After watching the video, it looks like McConaughey is a fine wine. He just gets better with age.
