Jack White is an Olivia Rodrigo fan.

In an Instagram post Tuesday night, the White Stripes/Raconteurs/Dead Weather rocker shared that he’d met the “drivers license” artist earlier that day.

“She’s very cool, very real and very much a lover of music,” White wrote of Rodrigo. “She’s also introducing another set of youth to the love of vinyl records as well. Respect.”

The post is accompanied by photos of the two musicians, as well as a video clip of them hugging.

Rodrigo also shared the photos, adding that White is her “hero of all heroes.”

“Still crying,” she wrote. “Thank u @officialjackwhite for being so kind to ur biggest fangirl.”

Rodrigo just played White’s current hometown of Nashville Tuesday. In addition to playing songs off her hit debut record, SOUR, she also covered No Doubt‘s “Just a Girl” and Avril Lavigne‘s “Complicated.”

White, meanwhile, is set to resume is Supply Chain Issues tour in support of his new solo album Fear of the Dawn May 23 in Irving, Texas.
