11-Year-Old Justin Timberlake Singing Alan Jackson Is More Country Than Most Of Radio

To the time machine we go.

WAYYYYY back in 1992, Justin Timberlake appeared on Star Search, showing off the twang, dance moves, cowboy hat, and love of country music.

What song did he sing? Alan Jackson‘s “Love’s Got a Hold on You” from his Don’t Rock the Jukebox album. FUCK, DO I RESPECT IT.

This kid would wipe the floor with some of the shit you hear on mainstream radio these days.

Enjoy the throwback.

“Love’s Got a Hold on You” lyrics…

I called my doctor on the telephone
“Help me doctor, there’s something wrong
I can’t shake it, it’s gone too far”
He said, “Tell me what your symptoms are”

I said “My hands are sweaty and my knees are weak
I can’t eat and I can’t sleep
It’s turning me every way but loose”
He said, “It sounds like love’s got a hold on you
No doubt, love’s got a hold on you”

I told my buddies I was settling down
No more of this running ’round
They looked at me like I was a fool
And said “Come on tell us what’s wrong with you”

Well I tossed and turned ’til the morning light
Holding my pillow hanging on for life
There ain’t nothing I can do
They said, “It sounds like love’s got a hold on you
Sounds like love’s got a hold on you”
