Rodeo Queen’s Emotional Performance For Her Late Grandpa Moves The “AGT” Audience.

Woman in a cowboy hat sings and plays the guitar on “America’s Got Talent.” Her eyes are closed as she sings with passion.

When following your dreams gets tough, there’s nothing quite like the encouragement of a loved one. For Kylie Frey, one of her biggest supporters was her Grandpa. Growing up in Opelousas, Louisiana, she’s always had a love for country music and rodeo. In fact, she found a way to combine both of those loves.

How did she do this? By singing the national anthem at every single rodeo that she showed up at. In doing so, this budding country artist began to grow, taking her to the “America’s Got Talent” stage. Considering the amount of support she received from her late Grandpa, it only made sense to audition with a song she wrote for him.

“He always told me if I sing the national anthem for every rodeo that I showed up to that one day somebody would ask me to sing the national anthem at the NFR, which is the Super Bowl of rodeo, and that’s how I was going to get my start,” Kylie said before performing. “Because that’s how Reba did it and that’s how I was going to do it, too.”

Watch Kylie’s love for her Grandpa shine beautifully in her song “Horses in Heaven” in the video below.
