Hard work is definitely paying off for American Idol contestant, Shelbie Z!

In the most recent round of the competition, the top 24 solo rounds, Shelbie rocked the crowd with a cover of Gretchen Wilson's "Work Hard, Play Harder."

The clip began with Shelbie explaining to viewers that she's a true country girl. She said, "I am a rebel at heart. I like shooting my guns, I like ATV-ing and I like mud bogging.

Following that quick clip, Shelbie took the stage in a sassy outfit, accompanied by matching cowgirl boots. The singer then rallied the crowd by asking, "Alright, how many of y'all work hard out there!?"

The audience went wild and clapped along as Shelbie confidently sang Gretchen's hit song. 

Even the judges were impressed with the performance, and we can see why! Judge Harry Connick Jr. told the singer,

All around I thought it was a solid performance. I really don't have much a critique at all. 

Check out the feisty performance below! 

LYRICS BELOW

I work a double shift on monday
Tuesday I get up before dawn
Wednesday pouring coffee
Thursday night I'm tending the bar
Well, when Friday finally rolls around
I call my rough and rowdy friends and we're honkytonk loud

I work hard, I play harder
I'm a good timin' american daughter
Redneck, blue collar,
And I party down to my last dollar
I work hard, I work hard, I work hard,
I play harder

I don't waste my time on
Manicures and spray on tans
And I don't pay no never mind
To the callouses I've worn on my hands
You know that people just can't understand how
I'm the first to clock in but the last to pass out

I work hard, I play harder
I'm a good timin' american daughter
Redneck, blue collar,
And I party down to my last dollar
I work hard, I play harder
I'm a good timin' american daughter
Redneck, blue collar,
And I party down to my last dollar
I work hard, I work hard, I work hard,
I work hard, I work hard, I work hard,
I play harder, yeah
