Country music has a new CMA darling this morning (9/7): Lainey Wilson. Miranda Lambert, who has been the CMA’s darling for quite some time, posted a headline article to her Insta stories of Lainey topping the CMA's nominations list with six nods total. Lambert wrote over the story, “Hell yeah, she does. Go, friend, go.”
Wilson got her very first nominations today, and among her six nods are Album of the Year and Female Vocalist of the Year. Lainey herself posted to her socials when she heard the news, “6 NOMINATIONS!?!? I’m speechless. While I try to find the words, just know that I’m blown away and so so honored and proud to be nominated. Thank you to the entire country music community! @CountryMusic #CMAawards.”
With her new CMA fame fresh today, we look at some of the things that Lainey, who is also currently filming her first acting role on Paramount’s Yellowstone series this month, has been up to in the last year.
