HARDY and Lainey Wilson Rock Seven Peaks Music Festival with ‘Wait In the Truck’

by Blake Ells

HARDY and Lainey Wilson shared the live debut of their duet “Wait in the Truck” at Dierks Bentley’s Seven Peaks Music Festival. HARDY has called the song the best one that he’s ever written. He’d performed it in his own live show before the festival, but this is the first time that he and Lainey Wilson have performed it live together. They recreated their characters from the music video, with HARDY in a prison uniform Check out a fan-shot clip below.

It appears that the track is a one-off single. That is, unless HARDY is including it on a forthcoming, unannounced collection. It’s not on Lainey Wilson’s new album. She recently dropped a new single of her own titled “Watermelon Moonshine.” That came with the news that a new album titled Bell Bottom Country arrives on October 28. There’s plenty to love about the track listing on that one. It includes the new single and her smash hit “Heart Like a Truck.” It also includes songs like “Hillbilly Hippie,” “Me, You and Jesus” and “Those Boots (Deddy’s Song).” There’s also a cover of the 4 Non Blondes track “What’s Up?” to close it out.

Lainey Wilson is also gearing up for her first full season as a cast member of Yellowstone. She performed during last season’s finale, and that landed her a role on the series for the upcoming fifth season. It debuts on November 13. Even though she’s a big television star now, she says that her priority is still her music.

“I’ve never had a plan B,” she said. “This is the plan A for me. I ain’t going home and helping daddy farm – it ain’t happening!”
