Lainey Wilson seems to be an overnight success as her debut single, "Things A Man Oughta Know," sits inside the Top 10 and climbing on the country charts, but the truth is she's been chasing this music dream since she was nine years old. That's when Lainey wrote her first song, and she's already been living in Nashville for a decade.

Lainey tells us EXCLUSIVELY: ["This year I have been here for 10 years. Even when I got here I still didn't know what to do or how to even get started and so I just kind of kept my blinders on and would hope and pray for opportunities along the way and I knew that timing is important, and I knew that one day I was gonna have my time if I didn't have a plan B so I was like, 'You know what? If you ain't gotta plan B, if you got a plan A then it's gotta work at some point in time."] SOUNDCUE (:26 OC: . . . point in time.)

Lainey released her debut album, Sayin' What I'm Thinkin', in February.

She will join headliner Jason Aldean on his Back In The Saddle Tour beginning next month.
