There’s no doubt about it. 4-year old Baylee Alford is a fighter. The adorable little girl has endured a lot during the last year, but had continued to smile…and sing. Alford has also become a darling of sorts among country music artists. The avid fan had her right arm amputated below the elbow following a horrific lawn mowing accident in late 2016.
Following Baylee’s surgeries her parents played country music videos for her in an attempt to help her wake up. The song that did the trick was “May We All” by Florida Georgia Line. The video of Baylee waking up was posted online and received an overwhelming response from social media users and country stars.
Florida Georgia Line sent the little girl a personal video of well wishes.
“We just want to let you know we are thinking about you, praying for you and sending you good vibes and good energy all the way from Canada. Hope to see you soon at our next show,” they said in the video.
On July 13th, Baylee shared a special moment with another country star. Reigning ACM Entertainer of the Year Jason Aldean invited Baylee on stage during his Charlotte, North Carolina, concert. She helped Aldean sing his 2010 hit “Dirt Road Anthem.” The little girl shined in the spotlight as she belted out the lyrics and high-fived audience members.
Baylee’s mom, Amber recorded the special moment then posted the video to Facebook saying, “I almost lost [my] contacts from tearing up when Jason Aldean pulled Baylee up on stage with him last night,” she wrote. “We were getting stopped all the way to the car with people wanting to take pictures or high-five and tell her how good she did. She makes everyone happy around her, and that makes my heart smile.”
The video will make your heart smile, too! Watch the special moment unfold in the video below.
