Lainey Wilson has good stories. Spend a half hour with her and she'll back into stories about her no-stoplight hometown, bizarre high school job or the camper she lived in — and flooded! —when she first moved to Nashville.
Five of Nashville's most promising female artists paid tribute to another of country's most talented young women at a #LetTheGirlsPlay show on a recent Monday night in Nashville, offering fans a cover of Lauren Alaina's current hit, "Road Less Traveled."
They say you can't judge a book by its cover, but if Kim Paige's book came with a list of her songs on it, you'd get pretty close. There's "I Love Beer" and "Go Home L.A.," which are self-explanatory. "Overthinker" is her deepest offering. "We Need a Wife" is not so much tongue-in-cheek as it is a gum-bumping referendum on housework.
Country newcomer and January's #LetTheGirlsPlay artist Lacy Cavalier says she grew up surrounded by strong country women. They were all over her radio! However, Faith Hill is one who had the greatest influence.
It started with a song for Tenille Arts, a Shania Twain song. She was singing "Man! I Feel Like a Woman" in her yard one day and eight years later she finds herself as one of country music's hottest newcomers.
