Lainey Wilson’s List of Things to Know is Not Just for Men

Lainey Wilson’s List of Things to Know is Not Just for Men

Lainey Wilson is working her way up the country music airplay chart with “Things A Man Oughta Know” from her album Sayin’ What I’m Thinkin’

As she’s listing off all those things in the song, turns out that those are things that are not just for a man to know…but they were also things Lainey’s parents wanted her to know before she embarked on her trip to Nashville to make it in country music. “We sat down to write down things a man ought to know, and the list was way too long. So we had to condense it a little bit. But we really started talking about my childhood and all the things that my parents taught me growing up, things that they thought were important. Things I needed to know before I left Baskin. Like how to change a tire, how to start a fire, how to turn a wrench. Before I moved up to Nashville in my camper they made me weave it in and out of the pine trees in the front yard to make sure I knew what I was doing.”

Lainey shares the real lesson of the song, “But more importantly, it’s not just about that. It’s about the characteristics my parents taught me to look for in myself, but also in other people.”

Along with getting ready to jump inside the Top-10 of the Billboard country music airplay chart with “Things A Man Oughta Know” – the music video for the track has surpassed 1 million views.

Lainey promised her fans something special if that happened, “I told y’all that once my ‘Things A Man Oughta Know’ official music video hit 1 million views on YouTube, I’d release the BTS… so, here she is! I present to you, ‘Things A Man Oughta Know: Making the Music Video.’ Enjoy. Forever thankful for all of your support on this song.”

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.
