Louisiana native Lainey Wilson brings her uniquely original tunes to Saddle Bags. A natural performer, Wilson got her start performing as Hannah Montana at various events and parties in high school. Later, after years of traveling back and forth to Nashville, the young musician dove in headfirst, parking her camper in a friend’s studio parking lot while working hard on Music Row.
In her time in Nashville, Wilson has become an in-demand writer, penning hundreds of songs for the likes of Luke Combs, Kasey Tyndall, and, eventually herself. Sony/ATV signed her as a solo artist in 2017, and since then, Wilson has caught attention opening for the likes of Dylan Scott, Deana Carter, Jamie Lynn Spears, Tracey Laurence, and more.
Inspired by Southern Rock and country legends like Dolly Parton and Loretta Lynn, Wilson has been garnering attention with her latest EP. With a honey-toned vocals and gritty instrumentals, her single “Workin’ Overtime” will appeal to pop-country fans and traditionalists.
