Lauren Alaina and Lainey Wilson are flaunting what they’ve got in their new collaborative song, “Thicc As Thieves.”
This upbeat track serves as a comedic ode to the female country star’s “thicc” assets as they boast about their high waisted jeans and bell bottoms that only accentuate their curves. With their southern accents coming out to play, the country stars celebrate female empowerment by showcasing their tight-knit friendship of and also poking fun at their similar body shapes.
“We’re thicker than our accents, thicker than our hair / Thicker than the Georgia and Louisiana air / Thicker than molasses from the patches to the seams / Stealing hearts is in our jeans / Us southern girls, We’re thicc as thieves, We’re thicc as thieves / We’re thicc as thieves, We’re thicc as thieves,” Alaina and Wilson deliver throughout the cheeky chorus.
In the final verses, the singer/songwriters tip their hats to a co-writer on the song, Luke Bryan, and his signature tune, “Country Girl (Shake It For Me).”
Alaina poses the question, “Hey Lainey, what’d that Georgia boy say about us country girls?” to which Wilson responds, “Didn’t he say somethin’ about shakin’ it?”
Then, they proceed to incorporate a few lines from Bryan’s party anthem as they sing, “Country girl shake it for me girl / Shake it for me girl / Shake it for me.”
Wilson and Alaina debuted their new duet during this year’s CMA Fest on Thursday, June 8 at Nashville’s Riverfront Stage.
Bryan serves as a co-writer on this fun-loving new tune alongside Lauren Alaina, Rocky Block, Dallas Davidson, Jacob Durrett, and Parker Welling.
Sharing the news through a minute-and-four-second teaser via social media, Alaina revealed a behind-the-scenes look at the making of this unapologetically honest set of work. The clip features the singer/songwriter setting the tone through a series of footage from her time in the studio with diamond-certified producer Joey Moi.
Her caption read, “Sometimes you have to look all the way back to really move forward. My heart is completely Unlocked with this new project. This is just the beginning. 🔐”
Fans got an early glimpse into the project through the tracks “A Walk in the Bar,” and “Hangovers,” which were made available following her announcement on social media.
Created by an assembly of Nashville talents, Unlocked is set to include cuts by artists such as Cole Swindell, Ella Langley, and Luke Bryan, as well as hit makers Josh Osborne, Parker Welling, and Hunter Phelps, and some up-and-coming newcomers Emily Landis, Rocky Block, John Byron, and Lydia Vaughan among others.
This project serves as a reintroduction to the world as the 28-year-old unlocks a whole new chapter of herself both personally and professionally while going deeper than she’s ever done before.
“It’s been 13 years since we first met, and until a couple of years ago, I don’t know that I ever slowed down for more than a day or two at a time,” Alaina reflected in a press release. “I spent more time with the people that matter most to me – my family, my fiancé, my friends – during that period than I had in years. This music comes from my heart and my hometown. I am who I am because of where and who I come from, and I’m more me today than I’ve ever been. I can’t wait to unlock this next chapter with you.”
Unlocked also serves as a follow-up to 2021’s Sitting Pretty On Top Of The World, which spawned fan favorites like “Getting Good” and “Getting Over Him” with Jon Pardi.
Lauren Alaina will take her new collection on the road this summer as she’s booked to perform at several fairs and festivals before joining the North American leg of Pentatonix’s World Tour.
