“She has never sang in front of anyone. @Lainey Wilson I want you to see this!!!!” he captioned the clip, which shows the teen belting out Wilson’s popular tune as Peters bobs his head in the background and gets lost in her singing. The video has racked up nearly 14 million views at the time of publication.
Rilee’s performance caught the attention of Wilson, who wrote, “Let’s go!!! Sing it girl,” as well as other country artists.
“She sounds incredible to be so young! Tell her [to] keep chasing that dream, keep singing from the soul young lady!” wrote Jelly Roll, who took home the CMA Award for New Artist of the Year in November and was recently nominated for two Grammy Awards, including Best New Artist and Best Country Duo/Pop Performance for his and Wilson’s song “Save Me.”
Other social media users couldn’t get enough of Rilee’s stunning performance, with one person writing, “She makes me want to actually give country a try… her voice is effortless and so beautiful.” Another added, “That natural twang, yes girl you keep singing your little heart out and chase those dreams.”
