GRAMMY-nominated singer songwriter and breakthrough actress, Lainey Wilson, has announced “Wildflowers and Wild Horses” as her next single, following Wilson’s television debut performance of the song at the 57th Annual CMA Awards, in Nashville, Tennessee last week.
As the third BMG/Broken Bow Records’ single off her critically acclaimed, award-winning album, Bell Bottom Country, “Wildflowers and Wild Horses” is a reflective tale of Wilson’s life; “barefoot and bareback”. The soulful yet Southern track, accompanied by Wilson’s signature sound, blends elements of Western, Rock, and Americana, to bring forth a modern yet traditional Country song as an ode to her roots.
Wilson also earned her first ever nominations for the 66th Annual GRAMMY Awards last week. Wilson’s Bell Bottom Country landed a nomination for Best Country Album and her collaboration on Jelly Roll‘s “Save Me” scored a nod for Country Duo/Group Performance. These two nominations follow on the heels of her five wins including Entertainer Of The Year and Album Of The Year at this year’s CMA Awards.
Wilson’s 2024 GRAMMY nominations include:
- Best Country Album – Bell Bottom Country
- Country Duo/Group Performance – “Save Me” (Jelly Roll with Lainey Wilson)
