Kayla Slone- YouTube

Talk about a dream come true! Since her friend recorded her singing at her Walmart checkout line, Kayla Slone’s life has forever changed.

First, Diane Sawyer featured her in a story and then she made an appearance on Anderson Cooper's talk show.

During Kayla’s interview with Anderson Cooper, Dierks Bentley surprised her with a phone call and more. He started off by saying:

"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."

Dierks went on to say they needed to sing together. To this Kayla responded with

"Well come get me! I'm ready!"

That's when Dierks surprised her with tickets to the ACM Awards and to an after party.  To make sure Kayla would be able to make it, Anderson Cooper offered to pay for her trip.

Kayla is just too cute.  She sort of reminds me of Kellie Pickler with her sweet innocence.
