Jimmy Butler’s taste in music extends well beyond his well-documented love of country. After a recent 126-114 overtime loss to the Orlando Magic, Nick Friedell penned a story for ESPN that went through Butler’s postgame routine that night, including sitting in the Miami Heat locker room and blasting Nickelback at full volume during he “sang every word to every song”.
Butler is known for being a different breed of cat. When this little anecdote broke online after the story was published, many people on Twitter laughed at this detail. But as it turns out, this got on the radar of a certain Canadian rock band, who are touring a little later this year, and on their official Twitter account, they let Butler know he can join them if he likes.
It is unknown if Butler will accept this offer or not. It’s important to stress that it’s unclear if this means Butler can attend a show and potentially get VIP treatment, or get on stage and sing with them. Maybe that’s obvious to everyone but me, but to be fair, I never made it as a wise man.
