‘Yellowstone’ Star Lainey Wilson Catches A Red-Eye Flight To Perform To A Sold Out Grand Rapids Crowd
Lainey Wilson has come a long way in the last year. From playing concerts all over the country, to starring on the silver screen, it's hard to miss the bell-bottom country star.
In a concert that was originally scheduled to be in The Stache, which is one of the smallest rooms at Grand Rapid's The Intersection, Lainey moved so many tickets since her Season 5 'Yellowstone' debut, that her show had to be moved to the venue's biggest room to meet the demand for tickets.
And Lainey knows she's blessed, and she wasn't afraid to share it with the sold out crowd at The Intersection last night.
During one point in the show, Lainey said that her and her band had to catch a redeye flight from Los Angeles to Grand Rapids in order to make Thursday night's concert. She announced to the crowd that her and her band had just won the "troublemaker" award from The Billboard Women in Music awards the night before, to which she quickly added "I didn’t know we was breaking any rules, we just did it!”
Lainey also shared a little inside info for Yellowstone fans about her character Abby, who made her debut this fall on TV's most popular drama. She told the crowd that when the show's creator, Taylor Sheridan, called her, she was excited about the opportunity to share her music with the world.
I haven't acted a day in my life, but I sure have acted a fool at times
While Lainey's music was featured in earlier seasons of the show, her role as Abby and on screen romance, really exploded her presence on the country music scene, with fans flocking to buy her albums after seeing her appearance on the show.
Later after playing her biggest single "Heart like a Truck", Lainey held back tears, telling the crowd that their signing along to her song, was like watching her career bloom in front of her eyes. Lainey is finally hitting it big, and we're getting to experience it ourselves.
Lainey also made a point to point out those in the crowd who might be there because of something else that was 'big'. She laughed saying "I know a lot of y'all saw my big 'ol butt going viral on tik tok, and I guess if that brought you here, I'm glad you're here".
Lainey is a special kind of star, and everyone who was lucky enough to snag tickets to her sold out show last night, really got a once in a lifetime experience. I can't wait to see her selling out stadiums in the future.
