Credit where it’s due: The ACM’s got this one RIGHT.
In a somewhat surprising (but very well deserved) win, Lainey Wilson took home the ACM Award for Song of the Year. The only female in this category this year, she was up against “Buy Dirt,” “7 Summers”, “Fancy Like” and “Knowing You”.
And I mean, seeing Yellowstone’s Luke Grimes (Kayce Dutton) present the award wasn’t the worst part of the night by any stretch of the imagination:
Every red blooded American woman watching right now is losing their mind at Kayce Dutton. #ACMawards
Lainey and Chris Stapleton are probably the only ones from the soundtrack we’ll get to see on these awards shows, but she’s actually had three songs on the hit show including “Small Town, Girl,” “Straight Up Sideways” and “Workin’ Overtime.”
Lainey’s unquestionably one of the brightest young stars in all of country music, and it’s just fantastic to see her winning the big awards. “Things A Man Oughta Know” was her first career #1 at country radio, and it’s a kickass song that is as country as they come.
