(Radio.com) Meet Kayla Slone: Walmart cashier by day, hardcore Dierks Bentley fan and aspiring country music singer by night.

Kayla was recently discovered singing the Dolly Parton classic "Coat Of Many Colors" while at her register at a local West Virginia Walmart. On January 24th a customer posted a video on Facebook of "Some girl at Logan Walmart who can sing awesome love it!!!" As of today, the video has nearly 10,000 shares.

Bentley got wind of the video and after watching was so impressed that, with Anderson Cooper's help, decided to surprise her.

While making an appearance on Anderson Live, Slone received a call from the "Tip It On Back" singer himself and Bentley extended an invitation to Kayla to be a special guest at the upcoming ACM Awards in Las Vegas.

During the surprise call, Bentley told Kayla how much he loves her voice and her singing. "We need to get together and sing. Such a great story, really inspiring. I really enjoyed listening to you sing." More including video.
