Lainey Wilson “Hang Tight Honey”

Lainey Wilson just made Monday a little sweeter…

She just dropped a new song off her upcoming album “Whirlwind”, and it’s a feisty one.

It’s called “Hang Tight Honey” and it’s exactly what I had hoped for:

Yes! I love it! Lainey Wilson is on a hot streak, and shows no signs of slowing down.

Her new album “Whirlwind” comes out August 23rd, and she has also announced her own bar “Bell Bottoms Up” which will be taking over the FGL House off of Broadway in Nashville.

You know you’re killing the Country game when you get your own bar in Nashville.

Oooooohhh… all the chills right there.

Thank you, Paul, Trannie Anderson, and Lainey Wilson for writing such a fantastic song. Definitely one of my favorites!

Also, Lainey is everywhere these days, and is geting her own Hulu Documentary on May 29th, and she’s opening her own bar in downtown Nashville where the FGL House used to be.

Woman is on FIRE!

Keith Urban and Lainey Wilson “Go Home W U”

Man, we’re getting all kinds of new music today!

Not only did we get the new Miranda Lambert “Wranglers”, but also the Keith Urban/Lainey Wilson collab “Go Home W U”.

Damn. It’s a great day for Country Music!

And “Go Home W U” is the perfect Summer party song:

I’m digging it. Then again, Lainey Wilson can do no wrong in my book.

Keith Urban is working on a new album, and you can bet that will be on it! That being said, so is Lainey.

So, basically, we have a lot of new music coming our way.

Buckle up, Buttercup!

ERNEST Featuring Lainey Wilson “I Would If I Could”

One of my favorite up-and-coming artists in Nahville is ERNEST.

He is incredibly talented as a singer and songwriter, and is funny as Hell.

Yesterday, he dropped a new album called “Nashville, TN’ which has 26 tracks, and a boatload of collabs with everyone from Morgan Wallen to HARDY to Lainey Wilson.

And let me tell you, the track with Lainey on it, called “I Woud if I Could” is what 90’s Country Dreams are made of:

How perfect is that? It sounds like it would have totally fit in on Country Radio in 1994, and that’s a beautiful thing.

I really hope Countey Music keeps trending in this direction. We have some really great artists in Nashville right now, and they are doing the damn thing!

Also, last year, I got a chance to chat with ERNEST and he’s the best:


That being said, here’s my interview with Lainey as well.
Because I have to flex:

Have I mentioned that I love my job?
Just a little?

Lainey Wilson and Chris Tomlin Perform a Beautiful Rendition of “Amazing Grace”

Well, this just gave me all the goosebumps…

This past Good Friday, Lainey Wilson made a surprise appearance at popular Christian artist Chris Tomlin’s show at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville for a performance of “Amazing Grace”, and it was just as good as you would think it would be:

Well, ok!  That song never fails to give me chills, but you put Lainey on it, and it’s just… wow.

Perhaps a Gospel album is in her future?

If not, it totally should be!

Lainey has a big year coming up, and you can get all the tour dates at http://LaineyWilson.com

Lainey Wilson “Wildflowers and Wild Horses” Offical Video

Ahhhh! I’ve been waiting for this video for a while now, and it’s everything I hoped it would be!

Lainey Wilson JUST released her offical music video for “Wildflowers and Wild Horses” and it’s badass, just like she is!


Also, woman can RIDE, so mad respect to her. She’s the real deal!

Absolutely fantastic video, and definitely worth the wait!


Also, she’s pretty much the sweetest- check out an interview I did with her a while back:

How can you not love her?

Lainey Wilson and Dolly Parton Perform “I Will Always Love You”

Dolly Parton’s “Pet Gala” is happening right now on CBS.

Am I watching?

No. My husband has commandeered the TV for the Memphis Basketball game (Go Tigers!), but I have my phone, and upon opening instagram, I saw this performance from Dolly Parton and Country’s new darling Lainey Wilson doing a version of Dolly’s iconic “I Will Always Love You”:

Dolly and Lainey?

Night = Made!

Kelly Clarkson “Save Me”

Ok, I admit it. I am living for “Kellyoke” these days.

Seriously, I love seeing Kelly Clarkson’s take on different songs, and she hasn’t failed us yet.

Her latest effort? Covering the Jelly Roll hit “Save Me”.

I have a thousand and three chill bumps after this.

I mean, damn, how good is that?

And Jelly Roll, naturally, was extremely impressed as well, as he expressed on his socials:

Having Kelly cover your song on her show has to be a double-edged sword, though.

It’s great that she deemed a song great enough to cover, sure, but she’ll also sing it better than anyone else ever could.

Girlfriend sets the bar HIGH.


What song would you like to see Kelly Clarkson cover?

Lainey Wilson “Country’s Cool Again”

Lainey Wilson is on FIRE and there ain’t no hosing that girl down.

Fresh off of winning her first Grammy, Lainey just dropped a new song called “Country’s Cool Again”, and it’s catchy, Country perfection!

Lainey can’t miss right now, and I loved that song as soon as I hit play.  It’s fun, autobiographical, and factual… Country IS cool again. In fact, I don’t think it’s ever been hotter, except in the early 90’s when Garth Brooks was setting the world on fire. Country music is HUGE right now, and being a “country girl” myself,  growing up on the genre, and working in Country Radio, I couldn’t be happier. And I am so proud that we have amazing artists like Lainey on the forefront.

Lainey is hitting the road this year, and she’s hella good live. Get info and dates at http://laineywilson.com

Speaking of live music, here’s Lainey debuting “Country’s Cool Again” at Red Rocks last Fall:

Hot Damn, Ya’ll!
