Lainey Wilson was born in Baskin, Louisiana, and caught the music bug at an early age. She started writing lyrics when she was just 9 years old and picked up the guitar at the age of 11. After finishing high school she moved to Nashville and lived in a trailer in the parking lot of a recording studio, where the manager helped support the aspiring artist by giving her an electrical hook up. After a few years of playing local shows her breakthrough came in 2021 with the release of her album 'Sayin' What I'm Thinkin'. it featured the No.1 single 'Things A Man Oughta Know'.
Her latest album 'Bell Bottom Country' was released in October 2022, and the following March she made her way over to the UK and Ireland to perform at the C2C festival, which is when she spoke with Stuart Banford.
