Lainey Wilson Had the Best of Both Worlds With Her First Job

Lainey Wilson Had the Best of Both Worlds With Her First Job

These days Lainey Wilson is on country radio singing “Things A Man Oughta Know” — but we have something you oughta know about Lainey…

When she was younger her first music job was working as a “Hannah Montana” impersonator.

That’s right, the character made famous by Miley Cyrus!

Lainey shares the story, “I impersonated ‘Hannah Montana’ for 5 years. It was like my childhood, high school gig. I did it from 8th grade to 12th grade. I did birthday parties, fairs, festivals…the last place I played was St. Jude. Every now and then Lainey Wilson might open the show for Hannah Montana. Sometimes they’d be like ‘Who’s Lainey?’ and ‘Nah, we just asked for Hannah.” (laugh)

Lainey has left ‘Hannah Montana’ behind and now she’s out in front singing her own music, like her current single at country radio, “Things A Man Oughta Know.”

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

When you’re getting a permanent addition to you body, you want to make sure it means something, right?

Michael Ray has several tattoos, but each one has a personal connection to his life, “All my tattoos are either family based, religious based, or music based.”

He shares the story of one of his tattoos that honors his late grandmother, “So, my grandma, Penny, she passed away a couple of years ago, and I have a tattoo memory of my grandfather, and I wanted a tattoo for her. Her nickname was Penny, and I got a penny with my Grandmother’s birth year, 1942, on the date, on the inside of my arm.”

If he could change one thing about the tattoo…it would just be WHEN he got it. Turns out Michael got it on a show day, and it being on his arm, well, Michael admits “I started playing guitar that night…for the show, and it hurt like hell.”

But even with that night of pain Michael proudly says “it’s probably my favorite tattoo.”
