Lainey Wilson claims the top spot on both the Mediabase and Billboard Country radio charts this week with her debut single, “Things A Man Oughta Know.” She is the first new solo female artist to accomplish this feat since Gabby Barrett with “I Hope” in April 2020.
Lainey said, “It has been an incredible privilege to see firsthand how this song has impacted people. Thank you, Country radio for believing in it, sharing it with the world and taking this thing to No. 1—this is a moment I’ve dreamed of my entire life— and to do it with a song that is all about good character is icing on the cake. To my incredibly supportive team—thank you for always being by my side. I can’t wait to cry, celebrate and climb more mountains with you.”
Lainey co-wrote “Things A Man Oughta Know,” which has garnered more than 146 million on-demand streams and has been in the Top 10 in Country single sales for several weeks.
“Things A Man Oughta Know” is included on Lainey's deubt album, Sayin’ What I’m Thinkin’, which was released earlier this year.
