Lainey Wilson surprised fans early Friday morning with the announcement of her headlining Country’s Cool Again Tour. The 2024 trek will feature the superstar alongside special guests Jackson Dean, Ian Munsick, and Zach Top on select dates.
The highly anticipated, 35+ date Country’s Cool Again Tour kicks off on May 31 in Nashville, TN, and includes a stop in New York City at Radio City Music Hall. The tour will make stops across the U.S. and Canada through November 15 (see below for a complete list of dates) and follows Wilson’s Bell Bottom Country Tour, which took place in early 2023.
Biggest Tour Yet
“It’s a big jump from where we were top of this year playing clubs,” Wilson told the NY Post of the Country’s Cool Again Tour. “It’s really crazy to kind of sit back and think about the growth of what has happened.”
Wild Horses Fan Club
Earlier this week, Wilson announced the Wild Horses, her official fan club. Those hoping to gain access to the tour presale, which will take place on Monday, Oct. 23, can join the fan club for exclusive presale access as well as VIP Packages.
Tickets go on sale to the general public beginning Friday, Oct. 27 at 10 a.m. local time.
“Nothing gets me buzzin’ like putting on a show and singing along with the crowd,” Wilson added.
“I want to give a big thank you to all of the fans who have continuously showed up and showed out this year. We can’t wait to see you nationwide on the ‘Country’s Cool Again’ Tour!”
The tour appears to be named after “Country’s Cool Again,” a new song Wilson debuted on social media this week. The current nine-time CMA nominee gave fans a taste of the tune with an acoustic performance just one day prior to the tour announcement.
Wilson puts her signature flair on the tune, which is all about the resurgence of the country lifestyle. The upbeat tune finds Wilson pointing out the fact that “everybody wanna be a cowboy” and that there “must be something in the water” to spark the newfound fascination around country life. It’s unclear if the song will be released as a single at this time.
With a recent three-week reign atop Billboard’s Country Airplay chart with “Watermelon Moonshine,” Wilson continues to prove she is on top of her game. With this feat, Wilson’s “Watermelon Moonshine” now ties Gabby Barrett’s “The Good Ones” for the longest-running solo female chart-topper this decade so far.
“Watermelon Moonshine” marked Wilson’s fifth No.1 at country radio and her sixth is likely tailing right behind as “Save Me” with Jelly Roll continues to climb the charts.
Capping off another whirlwind year, Wilson is heading into the CMA Awards as the most-nominated artist with a whopping nine nominations. Her nods include the following: Entertainer Of The Year, Single Of The Year (“Wait In The Truck” with HARDY & “Heart Like A Truck”), Album Of The Year (‘Bell Bottom Country’), Song Of The Year (“Heart Like A Truck”), Female Vocalist Of The Year, Musical Event Of The Year (“Save Me” with Jelly Roll and “Wait In The Truck” with HARDY) and Music Video Of The Year (“Wait In The Truck” with HARDY).
The reigning CMA Female Vocalist and New Artist Of The Year made CMA Awards history again this year as the only artist to top the nominations list in her first two appearances on the Final Ballot.
Fans can tune into the 2023 CMA Awards in November to see if Wilson will take home the trophies. Co-hosted by country superstar Luke Bryan and National Football League Hall of Fame quarterback Peyton Manning, the 57th Annual CMA Awards will air live from Nashville on Wednesday, November 8 at 8/7c on ABC.
Until then, fans can catch Wilson on tour with HARDY on his headlining mockingbird & THE CROW Fall Tour.
