If you go to Lonnie’s Western Room in Nashville, Tennessee, you’ll be treated to live music, much like many bars in Music City.

But Lonnie’s is a little different. They don’t usually pay for aspiring musicians to play there all night – they take volunteers. To make it less complicated, Lonnie’s is a karaoke bar!

People travel far and wide to Nashville to hear country music, but if you want to sing some yourself, you go here. Even famous people like to sing some karaoke. According to some Facebook posts, Miranda Lambert and Chris Stapleton have both sung karaoke there.

One of the celebrities to grace the stage at Lonnie’s is no country singer, but he’s a huge fan of the genre. In a video posted to YouTube, Dale Earnhardt Jr. was spotted singing a Merle Haggard classic at the famous saloon.


Performing the late legend’s 1982 song “Are The Good Times Really Over,” Dale Jr. and a friend sang the 4-minute ballad for the intimate crowd.

The race car driver was on key the whole song and actually sounded pretty good. Is a singing career next?
