Ellen's Season 14 American Idol audition with "I Wanna Be A Cowboy's Sweetheart." "The Beverly Hillbillies" at the end was not a set up haha. I am just thankful I remembered how to play the song!
I initially auditioned for American Idol while they were on their Bus Tour in 2014 at the Branson Landing. I then advanced to Kansas City, Missouri where this clip was filmed while I auditioned for the celebrity judges: Keith Urban, Harry Connick Jr., and Jennifer Lopez. I made it through Hollywood Week and advanced to the top 48, and was eventually cut in Judgment Week, right before making it to the live shows.

My American Idol journey was an amazing experience and I am so thankful I had this opportunity. It was also incredible for both me and the rest of the Petersen family as it has given us lots of exposure and helped bring awareness to our family band.

When they informed me I wasn't advancing I was filled with peace and hope because I knew God had something different and better for me. Better may not mean more money or fame, but it does mean a life spent growing closer to Him and glorifying Him with the gifts He has given me. Thank you to everyone for believing in me and encouraging me! It has meant more to me than you will ever know.

►LYRICS - I Wanna Be A Cowboy's Sweetheart (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

►LYRICS - Beverly Hillbillies opening theme
... 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
