Lainey Wilson: The Moment She Met Reba McEntire
Lainey Wilson recently shared a special moment on Instagram when she posted her meeting Reba McEntire backstage at June’s CMA Fest in Nashville.
In the video clip Lainey posted, Wilson said as Reba approached her, “I’m gonna cry.” The two women shake and hold hands, as Wilson says. “You mean so much to me. You have, you have for real.” Reba says, “Thank you. Well, congratulations on everything you’ve been doing. I’m just so proud of you.”
Lainey captioned the sweet video clip, “Y’all…what even? This was one of those pinch-me moments. I am such a fan of @reba as not only an artist but just for the incredible person she is…talk about a dream come true. #reba #cmafest.”
Many fans commented on the video clip, including one who wrote, “I know @reba must love @laineywilson. That 2 real live country gals right there. The queen and the rising queen!” Another fan said, “You are really living the dream!! What a moment!” One more fan commented, “Lainey, you will have the impact on others following in your footsteps that Reba has! You are REAL, and that’s what draws people to you. You’re relatable! So besides your amazing voice that the good Lord above blessed you with. You are genuinely amazing.”
Wilson recently sounded off on weight loss scammers online after they targeted her and her fanbase. Lainey posted a video on her Instagram pointing out that the ads are lies and that her name is being used without her permission. She said in the video clip, “Alright ya’ll. By now, I’m sure a lot of you’ll have seen some ads about me losing weight, being hospitalized, and how I started taking some weight loss gummies, and blah, blah, blah, it saved my life. Well, surprise, that’s ain’t true.”
She continued, “People will do whatever to make a dollar, even if it is lies, ’cause ain’t nobody sent me any gummies. If I have lost weight, it’s because I am working hard and playing hour-and-a-half shows and running around every night of my life. And to be honest, me losing weight or gaining weight ain’t got anything to do with my music.”
Wilson closed with, “I love you’llya’ll, and I don’t want you all spending your money on one that ain’t real. Don’t fall for it. But I’ll tell you what, it’d be real nice if they made some gummies that made your a– tell the truth. You get a gummy. You get a gummy. We all getting gummies.”
