Rising singer-songwriter Lainey Wilson today releases her new EP, ‘Redneck Hollywood’, following her third trip to the UK last week including shows with superstar Josh Turner and an appearance at The Long Road, as well as on-air performances for BBC Radio 4’s Loose Ends and BBC Radio London, among others.
Produced by mastermind Jay Joyce (Eric Church, Keith Urban, Little Big Town), the four-track project is Wilson’s first release with BMG/BBR Music Group’s Broken Bow Records. The EP title is drawn from lyrics in the semi-autobiographical track, “LA,” which celebrates the Louisiana native’s down-home upbringing, zest for life and dreams of making it in this big world. Listen to Redneck Hollywood here.
“This project gives a snapshot of my story and moments in my life that have led me to exactly where I am today—growing up in northeast Louisiana, the word ‘redneck’ was a way of life. It’s a word outsiders would use to describe us and a word we’d proudly call ourselves,” said Lainey Wilson. “I’m a proud Louisianan, and always will be, but from a very early age I’ve had stars in my eyes for the glitz and glamour of Hollywood and I’d like to think that little twinkle helped propel me toward following my dreams and continues to keep me reaching further.”
