From landing a role on TV drama series Yellowstone, to the release of her new album Bell Bottom Country and receiving six CMA nominations. 2022 has been an exciting one for singer-songwriter Lainey Wilson.
With the most nominations of the 56th Annual CMA Awards of the night, Wilson was crowned Female Vocalist of the Year and New Artist of the Year.
“I look up to every single woman in this category. Each of them has paved the way for me to be where I am today so to be named CMA’s Female Vocalist of the Year is an absolute dream come true. Thank you Carrie Underwood, Ashley McBryde, Miranda Lambert and Carly Pearce for leading by example. I promise I’ll continue to do the same. “
The “Heart Like A Truck” singer also had a very special plus one by her side during the evening as well, her dad. A memory they both will always cherish.
“My daddy was here walking me on the carpet, which was a huge thing because he’s been sick. So, to have him here by my side was really cool, especially because this used to be a dream of his,” Wilson added.
A well deserved recognition! Congratulations Lainey!
