My Name is Ruby Leigh Pearson Lit’l Miss Country I’m 10 years old and I live in Foley Missouri a small town of 150 people, I’m Home Schooled and I come from a very non musical family! The very first time I ever heard Classic Country and Bluegrass Music was in my daddy’s barn I was 9 and I asked him what are you listening too? He thought I was making fun of his music and he said don’t come up here running down my music or I’ll put knots on your head faster than you can Rub them LOL 😂 I told him that I liked the music I had just never heard it before! He said well let me tell you about the music I listen to!
My music tells a story, first you have to hear the story then you hear the Beautiful music !
Well I sat and listen to the different songs that were playing and I couldn hear the story and then I realized it was beautiful sorta like magic how the story and the music were one I knew that second I wanted to sing and I did I started singing a song that was playing and my daddy said to me after secretly listening to me, Ruby that sounds really good and I said really!, He said yes it does well another song came on called the Dublin Blues by Guy Clark and I told my daddy hey I really like this one! He said I really like that one too why don’t you learn it and sing it to me sometime! I said really he said sure I bet you will do it good !
Well I left the barn and started playing the rest of the day.
The next day daddy was working in the barn and I went to ask him about the song he said what song I said the one yesterday he said I have no idea give me a hint of what your talking about I said you wanted me to sing it for you he said oh that was Guy Clark The Dublin Blues why ? I told him I’m going to look and see if I can find the words and learn it ! He said wow that would be great 👍 well I found the words and practiced the words for about two hours and felt I was ready so I was excited to see what he thought of it so I headed straight to the barn as fast as I could run and I asked daddy are you busy he said yes what do you need ? I said it not important I was going to se if you had time for me to sing that song to you ? He said I have time for that hurry up and go get your lyrics to the song I said I don’t need them I know the song! He said you know all the words I said yes! He said well I don’t believe that but you let’er Rip Tater Chip!
I sang the whole song Acapella and he said I did an awesome job on it and had me sing it a couple more times and then he said hey go grab that old wooden chair and take it up
By the woods and I will Record you and put it on Facebook I was surprised 😮 A bunch of people commented but they were family and friends my Momma asked daddy well what do you think everyone really seems to like her and think she is really good? Daddy says well they are friends and family what are they going to say ? They won’t tell her to shut up your singing is horrible! We are her parents we are supposed to think she sounds great ! Parents sugar coat everything about their children!
Well I didn’t really care I wanted to sing and I was listening to all the greats Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton, Hank Williams Sr, Ernest Tubb, and all the rest and about two weeks later my whole life changed and I’ve been singing every since !
I have sang with Mickey Gilley, Johnny Lee, Tony Jackson, Rhonda Vincent, and many more in my first year singing and I’m a self taught singer it has been crazy!
This section doesn’t have enough room to share my whole story so you will have to look me up on Facebook on my daddy’s page Casey Pearson or YouTube Lit’l Miss Country Ruby Leigh Pearson or Youtube Ruby Leigh Pearson to see all the great things happening in my first year ! I’m starting my second year 2018 off with a Bang I was Endorsed by Roadie Tuner in 2017 and they invited me to sing on their stage at the NAMM SHOW in Anaheim California Representing them 😍 so it will be a great time for sure! God is opening doors for me in 2018
