The Internet works in mysterious ways.
This week has seen Fort Worths Josh Weathers, who DFW.com profiled as the hardest working man in local music over two years ago, become something of a viral sensation as a clip of him singing Dolly Partons I Will Always Love You in 2011 at the Kessler Theater was posted to a variety of sites, including Fark, Reddit and the Chive.
The result? Over 300,000 views (and counting) for a video thats been around a while.
As Weathers told the Dallas Observer, I dont even know what to think about all this.
The tireless troubadour is reportedly fielding phone calls from national outlets, although he seems to be waiting to see if this stroke of luck has any legs.
Certainly, Weathers has only honed his skills in the years since our profile of him. He still maintains a pretty brutal pace with his band, and last year, released a new studio album, Big Night in the City.
Will this twist of fate prove to be the big break Weathers needs to reach an audience beyond the states borders? Time will tell. For now, enjoy this vintage clip of Weathers performance, a typically staggering piece of work that marks him as an undeniable musical talent.
