As one of the fresher blue grass specialists on the scene, she demonstrated that she’s not going anyplace soon, with six selections at the current year’s CMA Grants.
It was an extraordinary night for the “Things a Man Oughta Know” vocalist. The 30-year-old carried her own remarkable style to honorary pathway as she dazed in an orange velvet coat and chime base jeans. She adorned with striking, turquoise gems and wide overflowed cap to finish the look. With respect to her date? Indeed, she brought the one who implies the most — her father (Awww ).
Between making that big appearance with Solid for a strong exhibition to “Stand by in the Truck” and assisting with an extraordinary recognition for the unbelievable Alan Jackson, Lainey won everybody’s love as she was granted Best New Craftsman and Female Performer of the Year.
In an interview with Country Living earlier this year, Lainey explained that “Country music is [her] life. Growing up [she] didn’t even know country music was a genre. [She] just thought it was a way of life.” After years of dedication, her hard work paid off and the emotions started flowing as she accepted her award.

She began by joking, “If you know me, then you know that I am rarely speechless and I feel pretty speechless right now” then dedicated the award to her 9-year-old self who wrote her first song.
The water works continued when Lainey was surprised to win Female Vocalist of the Year.
I look up to every woman in this category. Each of them has paved the way for me so to be named CMA Female Vocalist of the Year is a dream come true. Thank you @carrieunderwood @AshleyMcBryde @mirandalambert @carlypearce for leading by example. I promise to do the same #CMAawards pic.twitter.com/wuB3kDaf5Z

Fans rallied around the country newcomer with sweet messages like:
- “Girl, you deserve it! You’ve got one hell of a voice & you’re bringing back some of the sounds we’ve been missing from female country music! And the fashion!!!!”
- “Well deserved!!! and Glad you could share evening with your father!!!”
- “That is the best acceptance speech I’ve ever heard! 👏”
With her as of late delivered second studio collection named “Chime Base Nation” and two pristine down home music grants, Lainey is destined for fame. What’s more, that incorporates adding “entertainer” to her resume.
With her expected job in the forthcoming time of Yellowstone, we can hardly stand by to see what Lainey’s splendid future holds!
