Lainey Wilson added her signature Bell Bottom Country flair to the Rolling Stones’ iconic hit, “You Can’t Always Get What You Want.” 

The track opens with the Louisiana native’s pristine vocals on full display as she sings, “I saw her today at the reception/ A glass of wine in her hand/ I knew she would meet her connection/ At her feet was her footloose man.”

With a touch of twang, Wilson croons, “You can’t always get what you want/ You can’t always get what you want/ You can’t always get what you want/ But if you try sometimes, well you just might find/ You get what you need.”

The tempo picks up and the award-winning star is joined by a choir. She continues to add a bit of funk to her rendition of the Rolling Stones classic, making it her own. 

“I put a lil extra #bellbottomcountry on @RollingStones “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” and it’s out now on Stoned Cold Country. Man…if I haven’t had to learn that lesson time and time again. This song leaves me shaking my head, smiling at myself, and feeling grateful,” Wilson shared upon the release of the track.

“This album is Country Music’s thank you to The Rolling Stones for 60 years of inspiration and providing the soundtrack of our lives. While recording the record, I was reminded that this is a showcase and spotlight on the best we have to offer as a genre,” Deaton says of the project. “From our artists to all of the musicians that played on the record, we boldly state that Country Music is second to none when it comes to artists of integrity and creativity.”

The Rolling Stones, which consists of Mick Jagger, Ronnie Wood, Keith Richards and the late Charlie Watts, are one of the most iconic rock bands and have been active for more than six decades.

Formed in London in 1962, the Rolling Stones have gone on to sell over 240 million records, making them one of the best-selling music artists of all time. The popular rock band has also been ranked as one of the greatest of all time by Billboard and Rolling Stone.
