Bill Murray showed up in Bardstown last night and rocked out on stage

Bill Murray has this great habit of randomly showing up in places you’d never expect. Last night, the famous actor popped up at the Whiskey Pig in Bardstown at a special dinner to kick off the Kentucky Bourbon Festival, which is going on now through Sunday. According to the Herald-Leader, Murray attended the $190-a-person dinner, which featured Willett bourbon and food by Husk & McCrady’s chef Sean Brock and chefs Newman Miller and Joshua Smouse.

Brock and Murray, both residents of Charleston, South Carolina, are friends (if you haven’t seen Anthony Bourdain’s “Parts Unknown” episode about Charleston, I highly recommend it), and Murray apparently tagged along with Brock for the trip. Here’s a picture of the two with some lucky Bardstown residents:

A random Bill Murray sighting is awesome, but that’s not even the best part of this story. At one point during the dinner, Murray jumped on stage and sang the 1972 hit “Brandy (You’re a Fine Girl)” by Looking Glass:

“You look young, get me some ham” is going to be part of my vocabulary from now on.

    My favorite Murray story I saw online is when he apparently went up to someone’s table (in an airport, I think) and took a french fry from their plate. All he said was, “No one’s going to believe you,” and then he walked away.

      He’s just as funny now as he was back in the “Caddyshack” days. 😀

    Great post Tyler. We visit the Charleston area a few times a year and we really enjoy the great Bill Murray stories. He is living a life of joy. Very cool!

    And yes, the “Parts Unknown” show in Charleston was terrific.

    I just want to know one thing: How many shots of bourbon did it take to get Bill up on stage singing “Brandy”?

    Mrs. Tyler, you may have given the idea for the next KSR or ThrowBoyTees t-shirt. Make sure you try to get some commission or at least a free shirt! Hahaha😆
