FLASHBACK: Oscar winner in a Trisha Yearwood video!

by Kody Mac

A very young Matthew McConaughey starred in the video for Trisha Yearwood's "Walkaway Joe". I know I wasn't the first person to realize this fact, but it was definitely news to me at the time. 

Now that the actor is now an Oscar winner, Trisha says she is proud of him.

She tells 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." 

Trisha is  "so happy to see him recognized for his work in Dallas Buyers Club. And if he ever wants to be in another Trisha Yearwood video, I won't make him audition."
