George Strait is a country music icon whose music has connected with fans all across the world, even Mongolia.During a recent audition for reality show Mongolia’s Got Talent, contestant O. Enkh-Erdene blew away the crowd with his surprisingly on-point rendition of Strait’s hit track “Amarillo By Morning.” Once he takes the stage, Enkh-Erdene channels his inner Texan and leaves both the judges and audience in awe.

Check out the mind-blowing audition in full below.

It’s hard enough for anyone with an American accent to do an at least okay job impersonating the King of Country Music. But I doubt there is anyone else in Mongolia who sounds quite as country as this guy.

Props to O. Enkh-Erdene for showing just how important and universal the power of country music can be. He’s still in the running for season two of Mongolia’s Got Talent, and recently won over even more fans with his impressive cover of Elvis’ “Don’t Be Cruel.” If this guy doesn’t end up making it as a singer on his own, he could definitely find success as an impersonator.

George Strait’s “Amarillo By Morning” Lyrics:

Amarillo by morning
Up from San Antone
Everything that I got
Is just what I’ve got on

When that sun is high in that Texas sky
I’ll be buckin’ at the county fair
Amarillo by morning
Amarillo, I’ll be there

They took my saddle in Houston
Broke my leg in Santa Fe
I lost my wife and a girlfriend
Somewhere along the way

But I’ll be lookin’ for 8 when they pull that gate
And I hope that judge ain’t blind
Amarillo by morning
Amarillo’s on my mind

Amarillo by morning
Up from San Antone
Everything that I got
Is just what I’ve got on

I ain’t got a dime but what I got is mine
I ain’t rich but Lord I’m free
Amarillo by morning
Amarillo’s where I’ll be

Amarillo by morning
Amarillo’s where I’ll be
