Because ‘AGT’ shifted to operating virtually amid the coronavirus pandemic, Chris Petersen was able to audition the way it all started: from the driver’s seat of his truck, with Syd by his side.

SALT LAKE CITY — On an overnight drive from Utah to Colorado, Chris Petersen sang along to the radio to help pass the time. His pup, Syd, rested comfortably on the seat next to him.

Until Chris LeDoux’s “Look at You Girl” began to play. At that point, Petersen was no longer a solo act. Syd’s repeated howls punctuated the melody.

“I couldn’t get her to stop,” Petersen recalled in a recent interview. “She just went crazy.”

Petersen and his dog have shared many singalongs since then. Syd, now 5, doesn’t join in on every song. But you can count on her to howl along to “Look at You Girl.”

“She can’t resist that one,” Petersen said.

Which is why the Cedar City-based country singer chose to audition for “America’s Got Talent” with that song. And because the competition show shifted to operating virtually amid the coronavirus pandemic, Petersen was able to audition the way it all started: from the driver’s seat of his truck, with Syd by his side.

The pair won all four “AGT” judges over with the unexpected duet, which aired July 14.
