It seems that Samuel "Joe the Plumber" Wurzelbacher from Holland, Ohio wants to cash in on his new-found popularity by getting a record deal before his 15 minutes of fame expire. That’s right, Joe wants to be a country singer!
Joe the Plumber rose to fame and became part of popular lore when he was recorded questioning Barack Obama’s new tax policy. Ever since, he has received media prominence and become a sort of representative symbol of the Middle Class. Joe was also mentioned frequently by Republican Presidential hopeful John McCain and his Democratic counterpart Barack Obama during the third presidential debate on October 15, 2008.
Joe has retained the services of a Nashville-based PR agency which will be responsible for handling his many engagements and very possibly, his country music career.
