Hahira - Fourteen year old Sean Lackey is well on his way to becoming a country music superstar.

He performs at local fairs and festivals, but this young man's talent is being noticed beyond South Georgia. He's already sealed a deal with a record company out of Nashville, Tennessee. "I was really surprised," said Lackey. "I thought I sounded pretty good, but didn't expect them to offer me a record contract so soon."

Sean recently released his first album, "Genuine Leather." He's also got his own corporate sponsor and web site. His parents, John and Sonya, keep up the behind the scenes business and are his biggest fans.

"It takes a lot of hard work, but he does it all," said Sonya. "We just do the odds and ends, like running sound, recording demos, and dealing with the CD sales."

Besides his remarkable talent, Sean's a pretty normal kid. "I go to school every day and study just like a typical 14-year-old, but then I come home on the weekends and turn into a country music singer," said Lackey.

He says finishing high school and college are definitely in his future, but wherever he goes, his singing career will be sure to follow.
