“Things A Man Oughta Know” Went #1 One Year Ago Today
Oh, how time flies by! We can’t believe it’s already been a year since Lainey Wilson’s first #1! It feels like yesterday when the star posted this:
Of course, the success of “Things A Man Oughta Know” serves as one of the first in a long list of Wilson’s achievements over the last year. Her career exponentially grew from here. Wilson met her goal of having more singles top the charts - the Cole Swindell collaboration “Never Say Never” also topped the charts. Additionally, she won ACM’s New Artist of the Year award and leads this year’s CMA awards with six nominations. Most recently, she delivered a stunning rendition of “Workin’ Overtime” at the ACM Honors ceremony, truly stealing the show with her Yellowstone tribute performance. Next October, Wilson is set to drop a new studio album named “Bell Bottom Country,” after her beloved flare jeans and her self-described niche in country music.
Despite all of her accomplishments, Wilson will never forget her humble beginnings, as a fresh high school graduate camping in a trailer outside a Nashville recording studio, and struggling to make ends meet. Another one of her singles, “Heart Like A Truck,” details her tumultuous journey to stardom, reminding us that our biggest dreams are worth working hard for.
Wilson has made history with her numerous accomplishments thus far, and will no doubt continue to do so. Country music is truly lucky to have such an inspirational, talented legend as one of its biggest forces in today’s music scene.
