In case you missed it, Lainey announced back in June that she would be making her acting debut on season 5 of the critically-acclaimed series, which began airing new episodes on November 13th. She plays a character named Abby, a singer on the show who greatly resembles her overall style. After only 3 episodes, fans have already gathered that Wilson’s character seems to be a lot like her in real life.
The 2x CMA Award-winner has had her music featured on Yellowstone in the past, but this new character allows her to actually perform her songs, which is a big step for the country superstar. After airing on the most recent episode of Yellowstone, Wilson added “Smells Like Smoke” to her most recent album Bell Bottom Country, and we’ve been streaming it nonstop ever since.
We are so excited to see what other music Abby performs on Yellowstone season 5, because that means there will be even more hot new releases for Lainey Wilson fans to add to their playlists! We seriously can’t wait.
Aside from Wilson’s new song, there were several other releases that serve as a part of this week’s New Music Friday. Sam Hunt came out with “Start Nowhere,” Ross Copperman and Kate York with “You,” Vincent Mason with “Me and Tennessee,” Taylor Austin Dye with “Damage Control,” and Spencer Burns with “Thanks To You,” five new singles that country music fans are already raving about!
In addition to this, Randall King and Hayden Baker released new singles, as well. With Thanksgiving behind us and Christmas right around the corner, it is clear that we will have both “Old Time Christmas” and “Santa Claus is Back in Town” on repeat until further notice!
