(Newser) – We already knew he could fix a toilet and stir up a presidential race. Now, Joe the Plumber may be dazzling us with a country album on Inauguration Day, Politico reports. It seems the artist formally known as Joe Wurzelbacher has teamed up with a Nashville PR firm and is being pursued by a major label.

“He’s a complicated guy with a very dynamic personality,” said one of his new press agents. “He can sing and obviously has a strong political point of view.”
