The West Virginia woman has built a reputation as the talented singing checker, with several videos of her a capella performances featured on youtube. Yesterday (Tuesday, February 19th), Kayla made an appearance on Anderson Cooper's show, Anderson Live, where Dierks surprised her with a phone call and an invitation to attend the upcoming ACM Awards in Las Vegas in April.
Dierks told her, "I'm a huge fan. Like so many people, I saw the video, and, gosh, I just love your singing, your voice, it's such a great traditional country voice. It was really refreshing and I wanted to just call and tell you that I'm a fan and enjoyed your story."
Kayla and a guest will not only attend the Awards, but the pre-parties, after-parties and various other events surrounding the big night.
