Miranda Lambert, watch out!

Cloey Schultheis, a 17-year-old student at Muscatine Community College in Iowa, wowed the huge crowd at the Future Farmers of America Iowa State Convention that took place recently with her cover of Lambert’s huge hit, “Tin Man.”

Competing in the FFA’s Got Talent, Cloey, who began performing at the age of four, also plays the bass guitar and bass clarinet.The aspiring kindergarten teacher uses her musical talents to sing lead vocals in two bands, Double Barrel Duo and Juliana and A Soul Purpose.

This was only the second time Cloey had performed by herself. Ordinarily, she has a band backing her up.

“Tin Man” won Lambert Song of the Year at the ACM Awards this year. Written shortly after her divorce from Blake Shelton, she sings to the Wizard of Oz character telling him, “You don’t know how lucky you are/You shouldn’t spend your whole life wishin’/For something bound to fall apart.”

Sit back and listen to “Tin Man” as performed by this Iowa teen.
