Little Girl Belting ‘Cry Pretty’ Amazes Even Carrie Underwood
"Cry Pretty" is one heck of a tune to sing, as even Carrie Underwood will admit to. Underwood, after all, is known for her range, which she's tested on several songs—not the least of which is her recent single, which includes a mind-bogglingly difficult vocal stretch at the end.
Still, a little girl managed to take on "Cry Pretty" in the humble backseat of her family car, hitting every (HUGE) note perfectly. Ansley Burns, 12, from Easley, South Carolina, belted out the tune last month with her parents recording the performance.
While Ansley's mom noted simply that the song was her daughter's favorite (and asked viewers not to mind her shaking her hair loose while getting down), Underwood herself took notice. The superstar posted Ansley's video on her own account with the encouraging words: "Ansley, this is amazing! Everybody keep your eyes out for this girl!"
Underwood has a few things to keep her own eyes on: She announced earlier in August that she and husband Mike Fisher are expecting their second child together. Her upcoming album, also called Cry Pretty, will be out mid-September, but she'll be taking some time to before the launch of the Cry Pretty 360 Tour in spring of 2019 to devote to her family and newborn baby (the couple have a son, Isaiah, who is three) before hitting the road. The Cry Pretty Tour, — which features Runaway June and Maddie & Tae — begins May 1 and continues through October of next year.
