One young Irish boy by the name of Keelan sure knows how to give a proper tribute to a string of legends that helped shape the genre he has grown to love. Strumming his guitar and sporting a classic flannel in his dimly filtered performance, this boy passionately tugs at our heart as he emotionally credits a variety of unforgettable legends with George Jones‘ classic “Who’s Gonna Fill Their Shoes.”
Keelan’s vocals carry a familiar country twang as he sings the heartfelt lyrics, “No, there will never be another/ Red-Headed Stranger/ A Man in Black and Folsom Prison Blues/ The Okie from Muskogee/ Or Hello Darling/ Lord, I wonder, who’s gonna fill their shoes?”
Throughout his heartbreaking perfromance, footage of the referenced legends fill our screens as we are left to remember a portion of the trailblazers through nothing more than their timeless music and remarkable photographs.
As his chilling voice not only draws tears from our eyes but longing from our hearts, viewers praised the singer for his immortalizing talent and honorable performance that paid proper tribute to some of the most irreplaceable performers country music has ever known.
