You never know who might be living down the street from you. In the case of some Nashville residents, they were surprised to learn that the mysterious neighbor with the guitar noise occasionally emanating from his home was none other than Jack White. How did they learn this? When he showed up at the annual neighborhood potluck.

Travel writer Jedidiah Jenkins shared the story in an Instagram post about how his family back home came to cross paths with one of the most popular rockers in music.

"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," reveals Jenkins.

He continues, "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."

White wrapped touring for his Lazaretto album in the spring, revealing it might be some time before he returned to the road. It is not known when he's expecting to work on his next album.
