Lainey Wilson delivered a rowdy rendition of a classic Travis Tritt tune on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville.

The country hitmaker covered Tritt’s 1992 hit “T-R-O-U-B-L-E,” a song she often performs during her live concerts.

Donning a silver jacket over a red shirt, Wilson worked every inch of the iconic stage in Music City while allowing her southern twang to be put on full display. 

“Well hello T-R-O-U-B-L-E / Tell me what in the world / You doin’ A-L-O-N-E / Yeah say hey good L double O-K-I-N-G / Well I smell T-R-O-U-B-L-E,” Wilson sang on the chorus.

The one-hour concert also included an exclusive collaboration of the 1996 No. 1 hit “Strawberry Wine” between Deana Carter and Opry NextStage artist BRELAND. 

Hosted by Natalie Stovall, Opry Live: Opry Loves the ’90s premiered via Circle Network on Saturday, July 23 at 9/8c and re-aired at 12/11c. 

In May, the Grand Ole Opry launched a celebration of ‘90s country music with the limited-time “Opry Loves the ‘90s” experience. 

The exhibit showcases the artists, songs and songwriters that defined the decade with displays including iconic stage wear and artifacts representing career milestone moments. Performances from Opry members Clint Black, Garth Brooks, Terri Clark, Alan Jackson, Martina McBride, Reba McEntire, Lorrie Morgan, Marty Stuart, Travis Tritt, Trisha Yearwood and more are also featured throughout. 

Additionally, the Opry is commemorating the ‘90s with ‘90s-themed Opry Plaza Parties and surprise artist collaborations celebrating ’90s Country Music.

The Opry’s ’90s experience runs through the end of 2022 and continues across other Opry Entertainment Group properties including WSM Radio, Circle Network and Opry.com, as well as across the Opry’s social channels.
