While the star may be best known for his iconic role in Footloose and most recently playing Jackie on Castle on the Hill, the actor has much more than acting skills under his wing, and he's proving it.

The star is as musical as he is theatrical, and routinely shares that side of him with followers through performances and song shout-outs on Instagram. Music undoubtedly runs in the family, and he performs not just on Instagram, but on stage, and tours the country with his brother Michael Bacon, who makes up the other half of their band, fittingly called the Bacon Brothers.
