Singing on the Grand Ole Opry stage with his mama.
Dillon Carmichael‘s latest single, “Son of A,” is a tribute to all of those parents out there who give a damn – the ones who show tough love, and have probably pulled the “As long as you’re living under my roof…” card a few times, but love their kids unconditionally and raise them up the right way.
It’s already an emotional song, but Dillon recently shared video of a performance that seemed to be just a little extra special: On the stage of the Grand Ole Opry with his mom singing backup.
The performance was from his appearance at the Opry last month, just before his latest album (also called Son Of A) was released. And obviously his mom is the sister of John Michael Montgomery and Eddie Montgomery of Montgomery Gentry, so she’s definitely able to hold her own on stage with her son and his powerhouse voice.
I can only imagine what a cool moment this was for Dillon, singing a song about the love his parents had for him on stage at the Grand Ole Opry with his mom by his side. You can see the emotion overcome him as he takes it all in, which is pretty cool to see as a fan too.
And I’ve said it before, but this is just such a damn good song. It’s the kind of song that doesn’t come around too often, one that can be career-defining – and career-making – for an artist with as much talent as Dillon.
Can’t wait to watch this one climb up to the top of the charts where it belongs.
Dillon also recently shared a behind-the-scenes look at his Opry performance:
And if you haven’t listened to the rest of Dillon’s new album, you need to, because it fuckin’ slaps.
