Leslie Jordan had a seemingly unexpected rise to internet fame during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. She quickly garnered attention by posting short, hilarious videos of her time in quarantine. At the time of his death, the actor had amassed more than 6 million followers on Instagram and 2.6 million in tik tok.
However, it also appears that Jordan was planning another career twist. In a recent interview with CBS NewsJordan revealed that he was working on a country music album. “So unexpected that it happened in my 60s, now I’m a country music singer,” he said. He added, “I love Nashville and the way that Nashville embraced me, you know, and being taken seriously, and doing an album with Dolly Parton, Chris Stapleton, Brandi Carlile. That’s something.” The move made sense to Jordan, as the entertainer previously revealed that he was a member of a Southern Baptist church when he was a child and that faith was a big part of his life (via NPR).
Dolly Parton, who worked with Jordan on the album, has since shared a touching tribute to the Tennessee native online. “Leslie and I had a special bond. I think the world felt they had a special bond with him,” Parton wrote. Adding, “Rest in peace, little brother.”
