The Seattle Seahawks cornerback was strolling through Vegas last week when he came across one street fiddler going absolutely ham on the violin. Sherman was so taken by the man's performance that he uploaded a video of his skills to his own personal Instagram account.

And, as those types of things are wont to do, the video quickly went viral, amassing over 27,000 likes on the site

Now the 23-year-old street musician, who goes by the name of Tony B., tells TMZ Sports that his career has absolutely blown up overnight.

"I've already got a few bookings," he says. "I got people inviting me to come play for them at weddings, tropical islands ... it's been crazy."

Tony B. mentioned Turks and Caicos as one specific destination he may be traveling to shortly. And its all thanks to a chance encounter with Sherman.
