It’s no secret that Luke Bryan has a ton of fans. Many of those fans also know their way around a microphone, and have shared their own cover versions of the country artist’s hits songs through the years.

But, perhaps no fan is as adorable as 7-year-old Owen Poeppelman.

The adolescent, who is obviously a lover of country music, has been taking to YouTube with his own cover versions of Luke’s songs. He’s already shared his own renditions of popular cuts like “Light It Up,” “Huntin’, Fishin’, and Lovin’ Every Day” and “Fast.”

Now, the cute kid has chosen to put his own precious spin on the 41-year-old country crooner’s latest single “Most People Are Good,” penned by by David Frasier, Ed Hill and Josh Kear.

In this YouTube clip, posted by Owen’s mother, Cheryl Poeppelman, the youngster stands all by himself  with an toy acoustic guitar in hand. He shows onlookers just how brave and confident he is by introducing himself with such poise.

“What’s up everybody?” Owen says in his endearing little voice. “Umm, this is Luke Bryan’s new song called ‘Most People Are Good.’”

After his sweet and short introduction, Owen, who sports a ball cap, jeans and a buttoned down plaid shirt (much like his idol would), strums adorably on his guitar while singing along to the uplifting song, accompanied by Luke’s own version. He leans into the microphone to deliver a karaoke-style version of the tune, which appears on Luke’s new album, “What Makes You Country.” And, although Owen is really just having fun banging away on his plastic instrument, his vocals are largely on point as he puts all of his heart and soul into every poignant lyric of the inspirational song, which is about seeking hope in the darkest of times.


Speaking of dark times, it seems like many country music fans are turning to YouTube with country covers of their own this week in hopes of spreading some warmth and joy as people all over the U.S. try their best stay to warm during the coldest of months.

Check out this group’s cover of Bebe Rexha and Florida Georgia Line’s “Meant To Be” below, which hit YouTube on Jan 3.
