Lainey Wilson to make her Grand Ole Opry debut on February 14
Lainey Wilson will achieve one of her childhood dreams on February 14 as she will make her Grade Ole Opry debut on the date.
The rising star made huge waves within the country scene even before she signed with Broken Bow Records, but her progress has now accelerated since signing with the label – partially due to her recent EP release, ‘Redneck Hollywood‘.
Speaking about the opportunity, Wilson explained that it had been her dream since she was nine to perform on the hallowed stage and that she cannot wait to follow in the footsteps of so many of her heroes.
“Most little girls dream about their wedding day, walking down the aisle in a beautiful wedding dress,” Wilson said. “Well, this is the day I’ve been dreaming about my whole life—to be standing in the Grand Ole Opry circle in a pair of bell bottoms, doing what I love.
“Stepping into that circle is about like stepping into Country music heaven. You hear about how it’s the best feeling in the world…how it’s better than you imagined it…but you don’t really understand until you get there and experience it for yourself.
“So many of my influences have stood in that circle. I’m humbled and excited to feel their spirit when I step in for the first time.”
Things are very much looking up for Lainey Wilson, who has support tours with Hot Country Knights and Reba McEntire to look forward to later on this year.
