YouTube Sensation Brendan MacFarlane Takes the Stage With Country Stars

Subscribe to Cat Country 102.9 on

When you’re 16 years old, getting your driver’s license is the ultimate prize. But, what about sharing the stage with Vince Gill, Dawn Sears and the Time Jumpers? YouTube sensation Brendan MacFarlane got to experience that — and it was probably just as cool as wheelin’ around without a parent.

The performance took place Monday (May 5) at Nashville’s 3rd and Lindsley, and although he was surrounded by successful country artists, MacFarlane appeared calm and confident, like an old-timer.

He sang Hank Williams‘ ‘I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry’ and the Gill as well as a few of the Time Jumpers jumped in and accompanied MacFarlane, who was playing the acoustic guitar. Although he has a Scottish brogue when speaking, when the 16-year-old sings he sounds like a country singer with a whole lot of soul.

The song has a special meaning to MacFarlane, who hails from Perth, Scotland, because it’s the song that inspired him to sing, according to his website, and he also performed it at his grandmother’s funeral in 2010.

It’s possible you recognize MacFarlane as he starred in a YouTube video that went viral in 2010.
