ACM New Female Artist of the Year and iHeartRadio Music Awards’ Best New Country Artist, Lainey Wilson today announces her new album Bell Bottom Country will be released October 28 via BBR Music Group/Broken Bow Records. In celebration of the announcement, the fast-rising star revealed the album cover on the Paramount billboard in Times Square and released a brand-new track from the album, “Watermelon Moonshine.”
Bell Bottom Country draws its name directly from the monifolks have come to use to describe the Louisiana native’s unique sound, style and aesthetic — it’s Country, but with a flare. The hotly anticipated album reflects Lainey’s depth and multifaceted character with elements of ‘70s Rock, Funk and Soul but remains Country to the core. Across the 14 songs (all of which she co-wrote, except one cover), Lainey reveals her dynamism and makeup as a woman who is wise, fun, empowering, vulnerable, badass, unceremonious, tenacious and above all else, real. While just as authentic as her critically-acclaimed Sayin’ What I’m Thinkin’, Bell Bottom Country displays Lainey’s immeasurable growth as person, artist and especially as a songwriter that has levelled up since writing the last album.
“I’ve lived quite a bit of life the past few years, and I have a lot more to say,” said Lainey Wilson. “Sure, I love a good pair of bell bottoms, but Bell Bottom Country to me has always been about the flare and what makes someone unique — I have really embraced mine, and I hope y’all can hear that across this project.”
