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.”

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
