Little Boy Dressed As Cowboy Sings Country Song In Viral Video

If you're a country music fan, then you're going to love this newest cover of George Strait's "Heartland." Fans may remember that this song was featured in the opening credits of the movie Pure Country, which also happened to star George Strait in his acting debut. Although the movie bombed at the box office, the song still lives on in our hearts as a much-loved classic.
But now, we have a fabulous debut of another sort, and this little guy is right on par with the country music legend's best performance! As with all young children, the best thing they have going for them is their overactive, yet fabulously creative, imaginations. As dad films his little cowboy take the stage, one can't help but smile at what happens next.
The stage in question isn't the great music hall of the Grand Ole Opry, but instead it's the youngster's back porch. Although the crowd he's performing in front of appears to be invisible, it doesn't mean that the audience doesn't actually exist. On this end of the Internet, real people are certainly clapping and cheering him on!
In his mind, the crowd was most likely giving him the thumbs up on his outfit, too. No country music star would dare appear on stage without his hat, but this rambunctious tyke decided to wear all the regular cowboy fixins - a super cool black cowboy hat, fitted brown boots, a plaid flannel shirt, and of course Wrangler blue jeans.
You may have heard the term, "fake it 'til you make it." It means that even if you don't have what you want right now, just go ahead and act as if you do, and your dreams will manifest itself soon after.
That's exactly what this little boy is doing! He's letting the universe know that he wants to be a superstar by playing the part of one. Luckily, he does a really good job of it, too!
At the beginning of the video, we can see the boy bend at the knees in a cute but clumsy attempt to give his audience a polite bow. He may look a bit awkward, but that's what makes him so charming!
It's hard not to notice the large red and white bib from the Las Vegas National Finals Rodeo attached onto the back of his shirt. However, this little wrangler doesn't need to rope us into his fabulous country music world - we're already there!
You don't want to miss watching this tiny cowboy sing "Heartland" to an imaginary crowd. Wait until you see his guitar! Awww, this is so adorable. He must have seen Pure Country a bazillion times, except that he's not even old enough to know about it!
