Having been named to nearly every “Artist to Watch” list and earning prestigious honors like CMT’s 2022 “Breakout Artist of the Year” and Billboard’s “Top New Country Artist of 2021,” the Louisiana native is one of Nashville’s hottest and most buzzed about new artists. Lainey landed her first No. 1 hit with her Platinum-certified ACM “Song of the Year” “Things a Man Oughta Know,” nearly 10 years after leaving her small farming community in a camper trailer to chase her dreams. She has won over legions of fans with her signature Bell Bottom Country sound and aesthetic, which blends traditional Country with a modern yet retro flare.

A prolific and sought-after songwriter (having cowriter credits on songs by artists including Luke Combs, Flatland Calvary, and more), Lainey is a fresh, fierce voice in Nashville, delivering CMA-nominated “Album of the Year” with her label debut Sayin’ What I’m Thinkin’. With a rockstar stage presence, her artistry has taken her across the globe, performing for sold-out crowds throughout the U.S., U.K., and Germany.

After topping the Country radio charts for a second time with the two-week No. 1 hit, “Never Say Never,” with Cole Swindell, her current single “Heart Like a Truck” is Top 5 and climbing, while “wait in the truck,” a collaboration with HARDY, sits just behind in the Top 10. Her critically acclaimed album Bell Bottom Country reached No. 9 on Billboard’s Country Albums Chart, quickly rose to No. 1 on iTunes charts, and has amassed more than 161 million streams to date.
