Her name is Kaylee. She’s just 6. She’s adorable. And Luke Bryan calls her “the damnedest thing I’ve ever seen.”
It was in the middle of his song “Someone Else Calling You Baby” during a recent concert in New Jersey when Bryan brought this lucky little girl onstage. And she pretty much stole the show. Not only was she belting out the song with Bryan into his microphone , but she was grooving along to the beat.
Not twerking or anything. Just grooving. In her shorts, boots, plaid shirt and cowboy hat. She’s so charming, in fact, he eventually just scoops her up and they finish the song with Bryan holding her like she was one of his own kids.
When the song’s over, he asks her name, age and if he can sign her to a record deal.
“Are you cool with that?” he asked. “The hell with American Idol and all that. I’m gonna sign Kaylee right here on the spot. I have never had a child do what she just did onstage.”
Who knows? Maybe someday Kaylee will be a famous singer, and the video from this New Jersey show will end up in her VH1 Behind the Music special.
Maybe Bryan can continue his nationwide talent search this weekend when his Dirt Road Diaries tour stops Friday (Aug. 29) at the New York State Fair in Syracuse, followed by shows Saturday in Allentown, Pa., and Sunday in Bangor, Maine. He’ll be getting back to his roots for a series of dates when his Farm Tour 2013 launches on Oct. 2 in Statesboro, Ga.
