Lainey Wilson Reveals Her ‘Mount Rushmore’ Of Country Music
Lainey Wilson recently took some rapid-fire questions from the ACMs and Wrangler and revealed who she would put on the “Mount Rushmore” of country music. Without hesitation, Lainey said, “Dolly Parton, Hank Williams, Loretta Lynn, and the last one, probably Reba.”
Wilson said what first came to mind when someone mentioned George Strait, “Oh my gosh, good looking.” She replied to “cowboys” with “My daddy.” Lainey said her favorite country expressions were “Dagnabit” and “Now you’re cooking with grease.”
When the word “Wrangler” was mentioned, Wilson said quickly, “Booty, yeah, big ole booty.”

HARDY and Lainey’s Wilson duet “Wait In The Truck” hit number one on the country charts in April. It scored a record for Lainey, who has had two consecutive No. 1 hits within three weeks, breaking the record for the shortest gap between top-charting songs on US Country Radio. Her song “Heart Like A Truck” was the first of the two songs to hit number one.
HARDY said when the duet struck number one, “I’m just so happy a song like this still has a place in country music. Thanks to everyone involved for taking this song to the top and for believing in this one.”
Wilson said, “I’m so honored HARDY asked me to join him on a song that’s had an impact on so many people and shed light on a topic a lot of folks are scared to talk about. He is one of the most brilliant songwriters I’ve ever met and puts on one heck of a show. I can’t wait to be back out on the road together this fall!”
“Wait In The Truck” earned three nominations at the 2023 ACM Awards for Song Of The Year, Music Event Of The Year, and Visual Media Of The Year. The song was also Named one of the Best Songs of 2022 by the Los Angeles Times, Billboard, American Songwriter, and more.
