Lainey Wilson: Full Circle Moment For A ‘Cowgirl’
Lainey Wilson is on the cover of the November/December issue of Cowgirl magazine and posted a photo of the cover story on her Instagram. While the article cannot be found online and can only be read when the physical magazine is purchased, the feature title is “The Unapologetic Voice Of A Country Cowgirl Renegade.”
Cowgirl magazine’s covers in the last year have included many rodeo stars, as well as Dolly Parton and Maddie & Tae, just to name a few.
Lainey posted to her almost two million followers, “I grew up a cowgirl, so this right here is a full circle moment for me. @cowgirlmagazine…thank y’all for asking me to be on the cover.”
Many fans responded to her post, including one who said, “The ULTIMATE Cowgirl!” Another fan commented, “We actually saw her perform at the Grand Ole Opry a few days ago; she has an amazing voice.” One more fan offered, “We Love Lainey!! You Are Killin’ it!!”
Wilson topped the country charts this week with her latest single, “Watermelon Moonshine,” and admitted that her phone has been blowing up with ex-boyfriends thinking the song is about them.
She said in a recent interview, “Every boy I have ever dated in my lifetime thinks this song is about them. No! Do you not realize I dated other people than you!'” Wilson added, “Boy, if that butters your biscuit,” they can believe she wrote it about them.
The chorus includes the lyrics, “Drinkin’ watermelon moonshine / We cut the burn with a little lime / Parkin’ back in them kudzu vines / I was his and every bit of that boy was mine / Too young to know what love was / But we were learnin’ on a sweet buzz / There’s never nothin’ like the first time / And mine’s always gonna taste like / Watermelon moonshine.”
