Southwest Oklahoma Opry Show

Last night in Altus, Oklahoma, the 5th Annual Southwest Oklahoma Opry Show was held at the Altus City Auditorium.  The show is produced by one of my daughter's fellow-classmates, 17-year-old Mikayla Jo, with help from her mother, Traci.  
Mikayla Jo has been singing practically all of her life.  One of my favorite songs she does is "Cowboy Sweetheart" because I remember her singing that when she was really young and being impressed with her yodeling skills!  Be sure to go to YouTube and search for Mikayla Jo to listen to her music.
Much of the show had a special emphasis on FFA - an organization that Mikayla Jo and many of the other performers are involved in or support.   Being a rural part of Oklahoma, FFA is a big part of all of our communities. 

Our local FFA Chorus, consisting of my daughter, Lauren (left), Mikayla Jo, and Kennedy sang "Bridge Over Troubled Water".  These three girls were part of the Oklahoma FFA State Convention last spring.  I have a feeling that they will be singing it on graduation night in May.  I hope so, anyway....even though I KNOW I'll cry! 

Here is the YouTube link for their amazing performance:

Special guest star for the night was country music artist, Bryan White.  Bryan grew up in southwest Oklahoma, so coming back home is special to him.  He is going to be releasing another album soon, so be sure and click on his name above, which will take you to his website.  

There were so many great performances!  So much talent!  Truly a great evening!
