Dad Catches Toddler Son Holding 'Private Concert' Off Backstep, Singing George Strait


Kids have the most amazing imaginations.

In the blink of an eye, a cardboard box can become a spaceship or a row of cuddly stuffed animals can become a classroom.

Watching little kids play out what’s in their imagination can often create much humor and joy for onlookers.

When I was young my best friend and I would sit in her bathtub for hours, but it wasn’t a bathtub to us. It had magically turned into an underwater playground and our Barbies transformed into beautiful mermaids with very complicated life stories.

She also had a shower curtain that featured bright colored coral and tropical fish that only added to the illusion. I can remember her mom walking past the bathroom giggling about our made up drama.

One little boy, named Jackson, dreams to be a country music star. His dad, Uwe Curley, posts videos of precious moments where Jackson lives out his wildest dream.

Due to his amazing imagination, he is able to turn any space into a sold-out show.

Curley was able to catch one of these moments on film. He posted an adorable video of Jackson singing George Strait’s “Heartland” to an imaginary audience.

He is decked out in boots, a plaid shirt, and a cowboy hat. He not only displays his memory of the lyrics, but also his impressive southern twang.

Could we have another Walmart yodeling boy on our hands?

The proud dad wrote, “Caught him in his element. Performing to his imaginary sold out stadium!”

He even ends the performance with an epic air guitar solo that would be hard to match!

This isn’t the first video his dad has posted of Jackson living out his cowboy dreams. Another video shows Jackson pretending to be a bull rider on Curley’s back.

“Jackson’s got his form down?? get ready bulls,” he wrote.

This kid has such a big, creative personality! He definitely has exciting things in his future.
