Watch This Little Cowgirl Belting Out “Mammas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys”

6-Year-Old Cowgirl Sings Rendition Of ‘Mammas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys’

While “Mammas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys” has been sung by countless country legends, it’s incredible how this sweet six-year-old girl snuck her way up to that list.

In a short clip we’ve found on YouTube – which was apparently recorded in 2015 – a little girl took center stage, donning a cowboy hat and boots while clutching onto the microphone. She gave a big smile to the crowd, who had no idea what was about to come.

One Bubbly Performance From Such Young Girl

What happened next will absolutely blow you away! With a single guitar player beside her, the young performer took one big, deep breath and began belting the classic outlaw ballad at the top of her lungs. You can tell she’s beyond ready to deliver a performance of a lifetime.

Throughout her performance, the little girl showed nothing but enthusiasm and so much cuteness, especially with how she emphasized the word “cowboy.” Of course, she held out the long notes in all the right places, too. She then ended her performance with a bubbly round that left her smiling from ear to ear.

The audience couldn’t help but clap and cheer for her!

RELATED: Warning From Two Outlaws: “Mammas, Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys”

“Mammas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys” was written by country singer-songwriter Ed Bruce with his wife Patsy Bruce, warning mothers never to let their children become cowboys because of its harsh and rootless way of life. The song became such a massive hit when Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson released their version in 1978. This rendition ranked atop the Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart and took home a Grammy Award.

Since then, it has become a staple in the country music canon. Make sure to watch the little girl’s performance of “Mammas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys” in the video below.
