This Little Girl May Be Country Music’s Most-Noticed Fan
Four-year-old Baylee Alford is quickly becoming country music's most-noticed fan.
From receiving personal well-wishes from country stars such as Brantley Gilbert and Florida Georgia Line; to sharing the stage with Jason Aldean and, most recently, Miranda Lambert, Baylee has been getting some serious attention from country music's brightest.
In July 2017, while Aldean was performing in Charlotte, N.C., he spotted Baylee in the crowd and invited her onstage with him to rock "Dirt Road Anthem." Baylee waved her arm, danced around and gave high-fives to everyone in the front row of the audience who extended a hand.
At a recent Lambert show, nearly the same thing happened, as Lambert scooped Baylee from the crowd and brought her in the middle of the stage. The two swayed back-and-forth with the crowd, then Lambert then gave Baylee a big hug before sending Baylee back to her caretakers in the audience.
Adventures like these have earned Baylee the title of Concert Pit Junkie, her playful Facebook handle.
Astute viewers probably noticed that Baylee is missing part of her right arm. Her parents tell Taste of Country that's the result of a riding lawn mower accident she suffered in November 2016. They woke her up from surgery with Florida Georgia Line's "May We All," and since then country music has been a huge part of her recovery. Clearly, stage fright is not a problem!
