Lainey Wilson shared a beautiful new performance of her fan-favorite track “Heart Like a Truck” via social media on Friday (Dec. 9). For this unique rendition, Wilson also had a bit of help from the University of Nebraska Omaha choir.

The performance was captured in a heartwarming video that was filmed in Omaha in October, following the release of her critically-acclaimed album, Bell Bottom Country.

“I’ll never get over how beautiful this was…I still get chills. Thank you joining me @uno.sings @unomaha ❤️,” Wilson wrote on her post along with the hashtags #heartlikeatruck #bellbottomcountry.

Many users took to the comment section to share their positive feedback on the goosebump-inducing vocals. 

“I think that is absolutely beautiful. Best version of that song,” one person wrote while another said, “Chills!! Love this so much!!❤️”

Wilson’s current single, “Heart Like a Truck” is among the 16 tracks on Wilson’s latest album. She co-wrote each song except for one cover, allowing her to incorporate her authentic country sound with the addition of some elements of ‘70s Rock, Funk, and Soul.

“It’s whatever makes you different, whatever makes you special, makes you, you,” she shared with Country Now of the album. “It’s about finding that and leaning into it as much as you possibly can. I think everybody’s got a little bell bottom country about them. So that’s what this record is.”

The project features fan favorites like “Watermelon Moonshine,” “Live Off” and “Heart Like A Truck,” which continues to climb the country radio charts.

Since she released a few songs from the album before dropping the full collection, Wilson had the chance to test out the new music live on the road. In doing so, she shared that the energy from the audience has been nothing short of amazing.

Another original song that was recently added to the album is “Smell Like Smoke” which she debuted during a recent episode of Paramount Network’s hit TV series, Yellowstone.

In addition to having several of her songs featured on the TV series like “Watermelon Moonshine” and “Hold My Halo,” the Louisiana native also as a role on the show. She plays a character named Abby, who was created specifically for her by Taylor Sheridan.

The “Hillbilly Hippie” singer first revealed the news of her debut acting gig back in June, and for months, fans had been eagerly awaiting the new season to begin and find out more about her role.

Lainey Wilson recently wrapped her time on the road with Luke Combs, serving as a special guest on The Middle of Somewhere Tour.

She’ll pick things up in the new year with her first headlining tour, the Country With A Flare Tour, which is set to launch on January 4 and continue through the end of March. Several dates in major cities have already sold out. 

Following this stint of shows, Lainey Wilson will rejoin CMA 2022 Entertainer of the Year Luke Combs on the North American leg of his 2023 World Tour.
