Lainey Wilson has unveiled a brand new song, “Hang Tight Honey,” from her upcoming album, Whirlwind.

This song marks the second sneak peek from the album, showcasing the dynamic energy and story Lainey Wilson is bringing to her latest project. Previously, she introduced fans to the album with the debut single, “Country’s Cool Again.”

What Is “Hang Tight Honey” About?

Wilson’s new track incorporates aspects of her own life, reflecting on her dedication to her music career despite the challenges it poses to her personal relationships. The lyrics “I got a bus ‘fore I got a house ‘cause that’s what dreams make you do” and “You can’t hold me, and I can’t hold you from two time zones away” highlight her journey and sacrifices for her dream.

“Hang Tight Honey” blends country elements with hints of ’70s rock, creating an encouraging anthem about perseverance and love. This combination shows off Wilson’s ability to bridge genres while keeping her country roots intact.

Announcing her new song, Wilson opened up about its significance, emphasizing that the dedication to her craft and the opportunity to create something meaningful for her loved ones makes all the hard work worth it.

“I’ve been runnin’ the roads nonstop for a few years now and I ain’t gonna lie to y’all, sometimes it can be tough being away from home that much. At the same time, remembering what ‘home’ is and the things that I get to do for the ones I love because of the work I put in, is what keeps me going and makes it all worthwhile.”

Wilson describes the song as an anthem for hardworking individuals striving to make a life worth living for their loved ones. It’s about the resilience and love that fuel one’s journey through life’s challenges.

“This one’s an anthem for the hard working men and women that get up every dang day and put in long hours to make a life worth living for the ones they love most.”

Fans flooded the comment section of “Hang Tight Honey’s” official lyric video with their reactions, and it’s safe to say, Lainey Wilson’s new song was an absolute hit with them.

“Lainey girl, YOU NEVER MISS!!! My summer jam from now on!!!”
“Loveeeee your music Lainey!”
“Another banger.”
“This is a good one! Love it.”

One fan even likened her vocal prowess to that of the legendary country icon Dolly Parton.

“I close my eyes and hear Dolly, open them and see Lainey, now that’s a great combo!”
