It's a story fit for a country music song.
A Walmart cashier from a coal mining town in West Virginia goes from singing in the aisles to center stage at the Grand Ole Opry. The Opry invited 21-year-old Kayla Slone to the stage last night after a video of her singing in Walmart went viral in February.
"I'm hoping this is my career. No better way to start it than singing on the Grand Ole Opry," said Slone.
Slone drove here with her family and sang two songs in front of a packed house.
She received a standing ovation after her performance.
Her budding musical career will have to wait though, she's expected back at her Walmart job on Tuesday.
Slone added, "It was a dream come true and I could see myself doing this for the rest of my life. Yeah, it's amazing."
