Tigirlily Gold’s video featuring their grandparents has gone viral

NASHVILLE, TENN. (KFYR) – We’ve followed the careers of Hazen natives Kendra and Krista Slaubaugh over the past decade. Their music career started in 2013 when the sisters were just 16 and 14 years old.

They moved to Nashville in 2017 and their singing and songwriting career has been filled with good news.

Now, a video of them has officially gone viral thanks to their grandparents.

Grandpa Bruce just knew the video would go viral. Her granddaughters Kendra and Krista are up-and-coming musicians Tigerlily Gold. When they asked Grandpa Bruce and Grandma Judy to film the content with them, Grandpa Bruce predicted it would take off.

“When we released the original video, he was like, ‘This has to go viral. I’m viral material,'” Christa recalled. “She was so confident she could pull it off.”

“I said, ‘I don’t know if it’s going to work that way.’ It’s not that easy to go viral,” Kendra said.

“I guess grandpa knows best,” Krista said.

“It has over a million views on Facebook,” Kendra said.

The sisters decided it was best to tell their grandparents, so they made another video.

“His reaction was completely genuine,” Kendra said in the video. “That was his real reaction to hearing for the first time that he was the virus. And of course, you never know what Grandpa Bruce is going to say. So it was pretty funny.”

The video of this call has also been circulated on the Internet. It has been viewed over a million times.

In a viral video of Grandpa Bruce and Grandma Judy singing Tigirly Gold’s new song, “Tequila Shot.” This has also spread on social media.

It’s all a little surreal for North Dakota’s little sisters.

“I think there’s over 43 million viewers and all the social media, you know, going crazy from Hazen, ND, where 2,000 people live in town,” Krista said. “So to wrap my mind around it, 43 million people have seen these videos, it’s absolutely crazy.”

After 10 years of making music, “Tequila Shoot” is their first song to officially go to country radio. This has led to lots of travel, lots of social media videos – including a trip to London – and, as always, lots of support from their home state.

“Although we are many kilometers away. We still feel that support,” Kendra said.

They say the support has helped them continue to pursue their dream — a dream that is a little closer to becoming a reality every day.

Tigirlily Gold has an EP coming out in a few months, which will later become a record. This will be their first full-length record.

They also have many tours planned, including stops in North Dakota. You can find their schedule here their website.
