She pulls a microphone off the side of a car and stands on the the back of a pick-up truck.

She leans against a wall, painted with the the drive-in’s name, Corral.

An American flag is draped across a stage in a field. She sings into a microphone as confetti flies by her while standing on the stage.

At night. she stands on a swing while her friends climb a jungle gym.

Some of her friends dance on the stage with her as she performs. A crowd sings along while a digital American flag flashes on the screen.
