“Mammas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys” is one of the most memorable country songs of all time. Originally recorded by Ed Bruce, it was made famous when Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings recorded it as a duet. The two outlaws’ version of the song remains the most recognizable to this day.
However, one little girl could sneak her way into that position.
Back in 2015, a sweet 6-year-old girl stepped on stage dressed to the nines in a cowboy hat and boots. The crowd had no idea what to expect as the little cowgirl clutched on to the microphone and smiled out at them.
What happened next will instantly make you smile. Joined by a single guitar player, the little girl took a big, deep breath and started singing “Mammas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys” at the top of her lungs.
The way this little cutie emphasized words like “cowboy” and “such” as she sang is just too cute. You can’t say she wasn’t enthusiastic with her singing!
The little girl powered through the rest of the song, and even held the long notes out in all of the right places. She concluded with an energetic final round through the chorus that left her smiling from ear to ear.
As if her smile couldn’t get any bigger, it doubled once the crowd started clapping and cheering for her. The way she reacted to hearing all of the applause was just as cute as her performance itself!
Watch this sweet little cowgirl sing in the video below. Then remember her, and come back and watch this video whenever you’re having a bad day, because it is sure to make you smile.
