Loretta Lynn’s Grandson Singing ‘Every Rose Has Its Thorn’ Will Leave Y’all Speechless

Fans of Loretta Lynn know that where she is, family is close by. She often brings her talented grandchildren on stage to sing, including Emmy Rose, who performed The Band Perry’s If I Die Young at a 2014 show. Another one of Loretta’s grandchildren proved that Emmy Rose wasn’t the only one to inherit the musical gene. David Russell joined his legendary grandma on stage in Aurora, Illinois and completely blew the crowd away. He performed a mashup of Poison’s Every Rose Has Its Thorn and Darius Rucker’s Wagon Wheel. As soon as David begins playing, the entire audience is left without words. He begins the performance with an acoustic version of the glam metal band’s power ballad, which was released many years before he was even born! He seamlessly transitioned into Rucker’s 2013 hit and the crowd loved it. After a chorus and a verse, he transitioned back into Every Rose Has Its Thorn. If we didn’t know better, we would have thought it was one song!
