Everleigh Rose is just got the most enchanting news.

More than a week after the 10-year-old released her now-viral debut song "Like Taylor Swift," her mom Savannah LaBrant revealed the new track has already hit the airwaves. In fact, the influencer shared a video on her Instagram Stories Sept. 12, telling her daughter about her song's major milestone.

"Everyone wanted me to film your reaction of this because it's pretty cool. Are you ready?" Savannah said while picking Everleigh up from a dance class, before adding, "Your song is playing on the radio."

The news prompted a shocked Everleigh to respond, "What?" to which her mom continued, "All over the world."

As Everleigh further expresses her disbelief, Savannah adds, "Like, you could turn on the radio and it could possibly be on the radio. How crazy is that?"

Everleigh then declared, "Only like people like Taylor Swift are on the radio!"

Savannah then noted that the song is currently playing "in the U.K., in Norway, in Kansas" and in Guatemala.

"How cool is that?" Savannah concluded her message. "Congrats, kiddo!"

Indeed, the song has traveled far and wide since its Sept. 4 release, with its music video, posted to YouTube, watched more than 1.3 million times.

"Like Taylor Swift"—in which Everleigh name-drops several of the singer's songs and sings about moving to Tennessee and listening to Taylor on the radio—has sparked mixed reactions. In fact, some critics have compared it to Rebecca Black's infamous 2011 song "Friday."

However, others, like JoJo Siwa, have defended Everleigh and "Like Taylor Swift" amid the criticism.

"Saying all of this with love," the former child star wrote in a Sept. 8 TikTok video, which shows her lip-syncing to the song in a car. "As the now 20 year old who once was the 10 year old growing up infront of the internet, I wanna say to anyone thats been saying negative things about this song or everleigh herself, lose your ego and grow up."


JoJo, who has appeared in LaBrant family videos in the past, continued, "First, this song is adorable (and insanely catchy). And second… Bullying isnt cool, it's not funny, and it's not trendy, ever… especially when it's directed at a 10 year old and her first song by people much older than her. Some even adults. If you've posted something knocking this, you should be embarrassed."

As for Everleigh? Well, JoJo aimed a whole lot of praise her way, noting that she said, is "one of the kindest and hardest working kids i've ever had to joy of getting to be around." The dance star added, "She absolutely deserves all the love [and] success she has."
