Most music fans would feel at least a little bit starstruck to meet Jack White — but not the musician’s Nashville neighbors: White recently showed up to an annual neighborhood potluck, where, apparently, the crowd mostly had no idea who he was.

Travel writer Jedidiah Jenkins posted a photo from the potluck on his Instagram along with a caption about how his mom has been putting on the event for the past decade, but this was the first time White has ventured out of his “large gated historic home shrouded in trees” to join them.

“This year, without warning, the occupant decided to come mingle with the neighbors,” Jenkins wrote. “Of course many of them had no idea who he was. ‘Jack White? Nice to meet you.’ He apologized for traveling so muc and missing out over the years.”

This picture is incredible. My sister texted it to me. Listen to this. My mom helps put on a neighborhood potluck in front of my childhood home. Our little dead-end street is populated primarily with older and quiet people. The houses are modest and suburban. My neighborhood has been doing this potluck for over a decade. At the bottom of our street, there is a large gated historic home shrouded in trees. We've never really spotted that neighbor. But we have from time to time heard guitar coming from the garage. This year, without warning, the occupant decided to come mingle with the neighbors. Of course many of them had no idea who he was. "Jack White? nice to meet you." He apologized for traveling so much and missing out over the years. #lifeiswonderful 📷 by @making_dinner #lookatthesepeople #theyhavenoidea #notelvisdontcare
