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 program showcased each of the artists covering popular ‘90s country hits from artists like Garth Brooks, Patty Loveless, The Chicks, Toby Keith, Vince Gill and others.

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.
