Michigan bred country star Billy Strings earned two standing ovations performing at the Grand Old Opry in Nashville this weekend, but seven years ago he was just a kid with his guitar at a party in Ionia.

Billy Strings kicked off his 2019 tour by winning over country purists at the Grand Old Opry Saturday night, but back in 2012, he won over a house party by laying down some stuff that you would never imagine could come out of a then buttoned down 20 year old.

Check out this video as Billy is wooed into playing an original song called 'Dust In A Baggie'. Amazing. And you gotta love the dude in cargo shorts dancing in the background.

(WARNING: Someone blurts out the F-word before he starts playing. It is, after all, a party)
