The above photo was taken from Instagram user Jedediah Jenkins, whose mother throws an annual neighborhood potluck dinner in Nashville, TN. For over a decade, residents have been wondering just who lives in the gated, tree-covered home at the bottom of the street. Last weekend, they got their answer, as Jack White showed up to the potluck and apologized for missing out in years past.

The only person who recognized White was Jenkins’ sister, who sent the photo to her brother. “The occupant decided to come mingle with the neighbors… of course they had no idea who he was.”

Here’s the photo caption, telling the whole story:

This picture is incredible. My sister texted it to me. Listen to this.

My mom helps host a neighborhood potluck in front of my childhood home. Our little dead-end street is populated primarily with elderly and quiet people. The houses are modest and suburban. My mom 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 they had no idea who he was. “Jack White, nice to meet you.” He apologized for traveling so much and missing out over the years.

And that’s the story of when Jack White showed up at a neighborhood potluck. The real question though, did White bring his world-famous guacamole to the event?
