Ellen Petersen's Season 14 American Idol audition with 'I Wanna Be A Cowboy's Sweetheart', and 'Beverly Hillbillies' theme song.

Ellen initially auditioned for American Idol while they were on their Bus Tour in 2014 at the Branson Landing. She then advanced to Kansas City, Missouri where this clip was filmed while she auditioned for the celebrity judges: Keith Urban, Harry Connick Jr., and Jennifer Lopez. She made it through Hollywood Week and advanced to the top 48. She was eventually cut right before making it to the live shows.

The American Idol experience was incredible for Ellen and the rest of the Petersen family as it gave us lots of exposure and helped bring awareness to our family band.

►I Wanna Be A Cowboy's Sweetheart lyrics (part):
I wanna be a cowboy's sweetheart
I wanna learn to rope an' ride
I wanna ride through the plains and the deserts
Out west of the great divide
I wanna hear the coyotes howlin'
As the sun sets in the West
I wanna be a cowboy's sweetheart
That's the life I love the best

►Beverly Hillbillies opening theme lyrics:
... Listen to a story 'bout a man named Jed
A poor mountaineer, barely kept his family fed
And then one day he was shootin' at some food
And up from the ground came a-bubblin' crude

Oil that is, Texas tea, black gold

Well the first thing you know ol' Jed's a millionaire
The kinfolk said, Jed move away from there
They said, Californy's the place you oughta be
So they loaded up the truck and they went to Beverly
