Lainey Wilson at The Edible Farm Dinner
Lainey’s zealous appetite for songwriting and performing planted its roots at an age when she had more fingers on one hand than years under her belt. Year after year, song after song, her enthusiasm and fervor for music never let up. As the daughter of a farmer, she was no stranger to hard work and making the most of every discovered opportunity. Throughout high school, Lainey capitalized on her musical talents by offering her services as entertainment for birthday parties with her impressive impersonation of teen idol Hannah Montana...sometimes opening the show with a special appearance by Lainey Wilson herself.
Lainey never had to deal with the hassle of packing her life away in boxes when she decided it was time to make the move to Nashville, TN. She simply hitched up her camper trailer and made the 7.5 hour trek from her hometown of Baskin, LA to Music City, where her mobile residence remained anchored in the back of a friend’s studio parking lot for the next two years.
Her career as a songwriter has fostered hundreds of songs, including her most recent album and title track “Tougher”, as well as cuts by fellow rising artists, Luke Combs and Kasey Tyndall. Her North Louisiana accent lays the foundation for her retro-classic country tone that’s hard to come by on today’s modern country scene. Opening for acts such as Joe Nichols, Andy Griggs, Josh Thompson, Dylan Scott, Kevin Sharp, Deana Carter, Tracey Lawrence, William Michael Morgan, and Jamie Lynn Spears, her authentic rural twang is performed with the energy of your favorite Southern Rock band and boldness of female country paradigms like Dolly Parton and Loretta Lynn.
