Watch This ‘AGT’ Contestant Slay a Performance of Gretchen Wilson’s ‘Redneck Woman’

Until her America’s Got Talent audition, Shaquira McGrath was a server at the Atlanta Braves stadium, where she would sing to customers and while she worked.

That all changed on Tuesday night’s (June 23) episode, when the aspiring singer strutted onto the big stage to pursue her dreams.

When she was asked why she never followed her passion for singing before, McGrath explained, “When I was younger, people would do that thing. ‘Oh, you sound so amazing but you could be a little thinner. You could be a little taller.’ So I never put myself out there like I should have. It’s been 25 years of me being an idiot and just getting inside of your head. It’s just too long, and it’s time.”

Judge Simon Cowell quickly assured her, “It’s the people who judge people for all the things you said that are the idiots.”

McGrath went on to blow the judges away with a powerhouse delivery of Gretchen Wilson’s “Redneck Woman.”

Watch the full audition below.
