Adorable 10-Year-Old Girl Sings Loretta Lynn Classic And Plays Epic ‘Dueling Banjos’

Facebook/Willow Osborne

10-year-old Willow Osborne walked out on stage wearing cowboy boots, and a cute red top holding a banjo that is bigger than her!

She immediately began singing Loretta Lynn’s signature song, “Coal Miner’s Daughter” while accompanying herself on her larger-than-life banjo.

Not only did she prove she was an awesome banjo player, she can sing too!

She only sang the chorus, but we could’ve listened to her sing Loretta Lynn all day long. Fortunately for us, her performance didn’t end there.

“I’ve been playin’ [banjo] since I was four-years old, but the problem is, no one wants to challenge me!” she told the audience.

As she was about to start another song, an older gentleman walked on stage with his own banjo. They playfully went back and forth before kicking the competition up a notch!

They began playing the the iconic “Dueling Banjos” and she totally held her own! To be honest, she might have actually won this round in our books!

“Dueling Banjos” was written by Arthur Smith in 1955 and includes riffs from the song “Yankee Doodle”. It’s been featured on The Andy Griffith Show, but was made famous in the movie Deliverance.

We’ve heard plenty of “Dueling Banjos” performances, but this might be one of the best!

Watch the incredible performance below.
