An Unknown 23-Year-Old Matthew McConaughey Stars in Trisha Yearwood’s 1992 “Walkaway Joe” Video

Alright, alright, alright.

All the way back in 1992, an unknown Matthew McConaughey starred in Trisha Yearwood’s 1992 “Walkaway Joe” (ft. Don Henley) video.

The 23-year-old McConaughey was just starting out as an actor when he was cast for the video. The very next year, he dropped that famous line in Dazed and Confused – a bunch of rom-coms came next, followed by Oscars and worldwide fame.

Here’s the video.

And yes, McConaughey is a BIG country music guy.

He loves Sturgill. He’s shared the stage with Miranda and Strait and Stapleton. He’ll cover Johnny Cash.

And he’ll even sing some Willie Nelson while driving around with Snoop Dogg.
