Tuesday, July 11, 2023 – Lainey Wilson released a music video for "Watermelon Moonshine" from her "Bell Bottom Country" disc.
Directed by Stephen and Alexa Kinigopoulos, "Watermelon Moonshine" portrays the reminiscent feeling of being a teenager and experiencing that first true love encounter starring Rachel Lynn Matthews and Sam Sherrod.
"I'm so excited to premiere the 'Watermelon Moonshine' music video. This song is about the young, wild, crazy love that we all hope to experience," said Wilson. "From locking eyes for the first time, to playing spin the bottle with an Ole Smoky mason jar, to being too crazy about each other to tame it, I am so happy with how Rachel Lynn Matthews and Sam Sherrod brought the vision to life through their portrayal of their innocently passionate characters."
Wilson is also teaming with food and drinkware brand, Stanley, on a limited-edition Stanley Quencher H2.0 FlowState Tumbler in a "Watermelon Moonshine" color.
Wilson has enjoyed an excellent 2023. She won four ACM Awards, two CMT Music Awards, completed a 28-date sold-out headlining tour and started touring stadiums with Luke Combs as support on his world tour. She will play festivals including Lollapalooza and Watershed, amidst headlining Red Rocks Amphitheatre and her first arena show at Mohegan Sun before she embarks on HARDY's The Mockingbird & The Crow tour in August.
Lainey Wilson was named Billboard's Top New Country Artist of 2021, ACM 2022 New Female Artist of the Year, CMT's 2022 "Breakout Artist of the Year" and scored six CMA Awards nominations, some impressive achievements for a relatively new face on the country music scene. This new album only confirms that she is a unique talent with her own sound in a genre that usually rewards conformity and sameness.
There is as much rock 'n' roll in these tunes as there is country ...
