Don’t let this country singer’s youth deceive you. He’s been taking the stage to perform longer than most his age!
Eight-year-old Cash Singleton began playing Merle Haggard songs on his guitar at the age of five and his singing career began even earlier.
Started At Three
At the wee age of three, Cash constantly sang around the house and entertained fellow shoppers while being carted through local grocery stores. That’s where his musical journey began.
Though Cash said his favorite place to perform is in front of his classmates, after watching this video, it is clear he is pretty happy no matter where he performs.

Little Big Shots
Recently, Cash took the stage to showcase his talents on Season 3 of Little Big Shots with host Steve Harvey. He wowed the audience with an energetic cover of Buck Owens‘ “I’ve Got A Tiger By The Tail.”
The young singer’s favorite musicians are Johnny Cash and Lester Flatt, but he sings a little bit of everyone. His versatile abilities are backed up on this show by his brother, Cutter Singleton, 11, who plays eight instruments. Cutter can be seen playing the dobro and gets a cutaway solo during this stellar performance.

Talent Search Winner
In May 2017, Cash won first place in the Beginner Division of the Kentucky Opry Talent Search.
The Singleton brothers hail from Marion, KY where they are part of the bluegrass band Classy and Grassy. Their big dream is to someday play on stage at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville.
That day may come sooner than they think!
Listen to this talented eight-year-old as he unleashes a rollicking rendition of a Buck Owens’ all-time favorite.
