Lainey Wilson takes the top spot on the Mediabase and Billboard Country radio charts this week with her hit “Things A Man Oughta Know”, becoming the first new solo female artist to accomplish this feat since Gabby Barrett with “I Hope” in April 2020.
“Things A Man Oughta Know” has garnered more than 146 million on-demand streams and has been in the Top 10 in Country single sales for several weeks. The single has also been certified Gold in Canada, reaching the Top 5 on Canadian Country radio and is just as popular in the UK. The single, written by Lainey, Jason Nix and Jonathan Singleton, appeared on her critically acclaimed album, Sayin’ What I’m Thinkin’, which debuted earlier this year.
“It has been an incredible privilege to see firsthand how this song has impacted people. Thank you, Country radio for believing in it, sharing it with the world and taking this thing to No. 1—this is a moment I’ve dreamed of my entire life— and to do it with a song that is all about good character is icing on the cake,” said Lainey Wilson. “To my incredibly supportive team—thank you for always being by my side. I can’t wait to cry, celebrate and climb more mountains with you.”
Lainey is currently on the road on Jason Aldean’s Back In The Saddle Tour, working on new music and continuing to write.
