Lainey Wilson turned heads on the GRAMMY Awards red carpet in a sleek all-black ensemble on Sunday, February 4.
The country superstar didn’t shy away from her signature bell bottom style for Music’s Biggest Night. Styled by Karla Welch, Wilson opted for an all-black Balmain jumpsuit, complete with gold accents. She donned Casadei shoes, a bag by Tyler Ellis, and jewels from Pomellato. Her blonde hair appeared to be a bit shorter and was styled in loose waves by Renato Campora. Nikki DoRoest, Wilson’s makeup artist, achieved a flawless and exceptionally natural appearance for her on the red carpet.
Wilson Is A Two-Time GRAMMY Nominee
Wilson is attending the 66th Annual GRAMMY Awards as a two-time nominee with nominations for Best Country Album for Bell Bottom Country and Best Country Duo/Group Performance for “Save Me” with Jelly Roll.
GRAMMY Nominations Are A ‘Stamp Of Approval’ For Wilson
Ahead of the show, the Louisiana native reflected on her nominations admitting, “It’s crazy” to think of herself as a GRAMMY-nominated artist.
Of her nominations, she told Apple Music’s Kelleigh Bannen, it felt like “a stamp of approval or respect from people in the industry as a whole.”
“Of course, I didn’t move to Nashville to just win awards. I moved here because this is what I love to do, but it’s like a cool thing that comes along with it,” Wilson admitted. “To think about a girl that grew up in a town of less than 200 people getting nominated for a Grammy… I hope that people who feel like, ‘Oh, there’s no chance in hell I would ever be able to do that,’ I hope that they can look at the story and be like, ‘Well, hey, you never know.’”
Wilson is still riding high from the CMA Awards last fall where she took home five awards, including the top honor of CMA Entertainer of the Year. Later this year, she will embark on her headlining Country’s Cool Again Tour. The trek kicks off May 31 in Nashville, TN, and includes 35 dates across the U.S. and Canada with the last stop being Monroe, LA on November 15. Special guests Jackson Dean, Ian Munsick, and Zach Top will appear on select dates of the 2024 run.
