Lainey Wilson and HARDY Collab on ‘Wait in the Truck’

Wilson and HARDY’s “Wait in the Truck” recently dropped. Wilson shared talked about how the collaboration happened.

“You know, HARDY has always been a buddy of mine,” Wilson said while on Sirius XM. “Anytime his truck breaks down, who does he call? Me. To borrow my truck. So of course we’re singing a song about a truck. But I love HARDY. When I tell you – when I think of the best songwriters in Nashville – really just in the world – he is one of those people. He makes me want to be a better performer. He makes me want to be a better writer. So of course when he sent me this song, we couldn’t say yes quick enough.”

The star spoke about how HARDY writes songs and delivers the performance.

“More importantly than that, it’s really just the message that this song puts out there,” she shared. “You rarely hear songs like this. It is a song about domestic violence. But it’s bringing light to heavy situations that people are scared to talk about. And I really, truly believe that it’s our job as artists to sing about the things that the things that some folks are scared to talk about.”

The singers sing in the chorus: “Wait in the truck (have mercy on me)
Just wait in the truck
(Have mercy, have mercy, have mercy on me)
Wait in the truck (Lord, have mercy)
Just wait in the truck

(Have mercy, have mercy, have mercy on me) wait in the truck
Just wait in the truck (please have me mercy).”

Fans have been loving the song since its release.
