Lainey Wilson Accepts the People’s Choice Award

Wilson took the stage for the first time tonight to deliver a stellar performance of her new song “Country’s Cool Again” and a medley of her other hits. Then, she took the stage a second time to accept the award for which her fans voted.

“These last couple weeks have been crazy,” the Louisiana native said in a massive understatement. “I am so proud of country music right now,” she continued. “So proud to be a part of a generation of country music where I feel like everybody looks different and sounds different and has a different story and comes from different walks of life.”

She continued saying, “It truly is the story-telling in country music that keeps drawing people to it. I just want to say thank y’all so much for letting me tell my story. Thank you for letting me tell my story and somehow finding your story within the lyrics, within a melody, within the guitar riffs. Whatever it is.” Then, she went on to talk about another large draw of the genre. “Country music makes you feel at home. I think everybody wants to feel at home.” She added, “Like I said I’m so proud of [country music] right now.”

Wilson went on to thank several people including her team, her parents, and Jesus. Then, she thanked the people who were responsible for her standing on the stage. “Also, I want to thank the fans. I’m telling you right now, I couldn’t do this without you y’all. My Wild Horses. Y’all keep showin’ up and I’ll keep showin’ up, too.”

Time will tell if Wilson shows up one more time tonight to accept the Female Artist Award.
