Cute Kids Singing Country Songs – Zac Brown Band, ‘Chicken Fried’
At the time of this taping in 2009, young singer Ashleigh Marie was almost the same age as Taylor Swift when the superstar moved to Nashville to pursue a music career. Since then, Ashleigh has gone on to record many more YouTube videos, including a cover of Swift's "Speak Now." But the one that really stands out to us is her rendition of Zac Brown Band's "Chicken Fried." She was only 13 years old, but her voice ... well, we could listen to it all day.
This 2003 hit from ZBB gets a makeover from a young, talented girl — but she doesn't only sing. She also plays the guitar and exudes a stage confidence that's not presumptuous or too old for someone so young. Instead, her top-notch talent is in the focus, and it's clear Ashleigh is having fun, which is exactly what she should be doing.
