Lainey Wilson Honored with Rulebreaker Award at Billboard Women in Music Awards

One of the country music genre's brightest rising stars Lainey Wilson was honored at the Billboard Women in Music Awards on March 1st.

Since getting a No. 1 hit with her track "Things A Man Oughta Know," Wilson has won an ACM for Song of the Year and taken CMA trophies for both Female Vocalist of the Year and New Artist of the Year in 2022. Her track "Heart Like A Truck" is currently making waves on country radio and so is her collaboration with HARDY, "wait in the truck." She also made her acting debut in hit show Yellowstone. Wilson is easily one of the biggest standouts in Nashville blazing her own path with not only a signature, twangy sound, but a standout fashion sense to go with it.

Yellowstone actress Piper Perabo, who described Wilson's music as, "tough and vulnerable at the same time," presented Wilson with her award after she performed a stripped-own rendition of "Heart Like A Truck." When accepting the honor, Wilson shared, "This award right here is for all the women who do things their way. The ones who are not afraid to go against the grain. The ones who are not afraid to paint outside of the lines. The ones who take no on the nose and somehow turn it into a yes."
