Kayla Slone, a Wal-Mart cashier turned internet singing sensation, got the incredible opportunity to perform in front of thousands at the Grand Ole Opry. Slone, who is headed to the ACM awards this Sunday, courtesy of tickets from Dierks Bentley, has had a whirlwind of a life since first being discovered after a video was posted on YouTube of her singing in her checkout line. Her whirlwind led her all the way to her dream performance at the Grand Ole Opry where she awed the audience with Loretta Lynn's "Cole Miner's Daughter" and even received a good luck beforehand from Lynn herself! Kayla told the press, "I can never give up now. This is what's going to happen for me." And the way things are going now, her wildest dreams may come true.
