Honey County reached new heights today, performing in one of Southwest Airlines® Live at 35® inflight concerts. Southwest® hosted Honey County's Dani Rose on a flight from Nashville to LaGuardia Airport in New York, where she serenaded Passengers with Honey County's viral hit "Got It From My Mama," a natural song choice to lead into Mother’s Day weekend. 

— Rose first connected with Southwest after the airline posted a TikTok sharing Captain Holly Petitt and First Officer Keely Petitt's story to the tune of "Got It From My Mama."

— For a full circle moment and to further honor mothers and mother figures, Southwest’s first-ever mother/daughter Pilot duo, Captain Holly Petitt and First Officer Keely Petitt, piloted the flight for Honey County’s performance on Tuesday.

— Rose met the Petitts outside of the gate area before they boarded this flight and then she stopped at the gate to teach Passengers and Southwest Airlines Employees the TikTok dance to "Got It From My Mama." 

"When I saw that Southwest used ‘Got It From My Mama’ to celebrate their first-ever mother/daughter Pilot duo, I immediately got teary-eyed," Rose shares. "I love the way Southwest celebrates, and it was an amazing moment to perform inflight at 35,000 feet with the Southwest Crew and Passengers as my hype team!"
