Watch this young boy perform Joe Diffie’s “Leroy the Redneck Reindeer” at a local talent show in 2018.

During a holiday recital for Tennessee’s Kincaid-Gooch Voice Studio, one boy stole the show with his “Leroy The Redneck Reindeer” performance. After watching him sing the whole way through, you’ll be wondering why Rudolph gets all the credit!

Leroy The Redneck Reindeer” was released in 1995.

While most kids would stick to the traditional “Deck The Halls” type music, young Luke of Alamo, Tennessee decided to take a more country-fried approach for his holiday performance. Singing Joe Diffie’s 1995 Christmas tune “Leroy The Redneck Reindeer” was a risky choice…but it looks like it might have paid off.

Diffie included “Leroy the Redneck Reindeer,” which he wrote it alongside Stacey Slate and Steve Pippin, on his 1995 album Mr. Christmas. Other songs on the album include “The Christmas Song,” “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” and “Silent Night,” on top of

Shy At First

As Luke stood on stage, you could tell he was excited to debut his redneck jam. He was country from head-to-toe with his John Deere trucker hat, overalls, and square-toed cowboy boots. The piano started playing in the background and Luke patiently sang the first few lines of the tune.
