According to the song sheet, the track was written back in March of 2023, and co-written by Lainey, along with Aslan Freeman, Dallas Wilson, and Trannie Anderson. The lyrics of the upcoming song are:
I’s born in boots on humble ground. / These kinda roots, yeah they sure don’t grow out / Yeah even in a guitar town. / My crooked drawl the way I sung / My mama’s genes sure stuck out like a sore thumb / in a metro city crowd. / Oh me, oh my how things changed / I can’t believe my eyes these days.
Everybody wanna be a cowboy / Drive a John boat whip a John Deere / Everybody wanna backwoods front porch/ With a tub full of iced down beer / Must be something in water flowing out of the holler / Doggone daggummit / Didn’t see that coming/ Country’s cool again
Lainey Wilson has been on a winning streak since last year, scoring five awards, including Entertainer of the Year at the CMA Awards last November. And most recently, she has reached a whole new level by winning her first Grammy Award for Best Country Album on February 4.
As Lainey’s fans eagerly anticipate new music, they can also get excited for her 2024 tour. Lainey will launch her “Country’s Cool Again Tour” in May 2024, with over 35 stops planned across North America. The tour will kick off with a performance in Nashville on May 31st.
