Lainey Wilson Sings The First Song She Ever Wrote At Nine Years Old… And It’s Pretty Damn Good

Lainey Wilson country music

I think it’s pretty obvious that Lainey Wilson was destined to be a songwriter…

She stopped by the Kelly Clarkson Show yesterday, and Kelly asked her if she remembered the very first song she ever wrote.

Lainey recalled a little tune she penned at just nine years old called “Lucky Me,” which she actually wrote at a sleepover with a friend:

“Mine’s called ‘Lucky Me.’ I wrote mine at a sleepover, nine years old.

And she went to one room and I went to the other, and we were like, ‘Let’s write a song and come back and share it with each other.'”

Kelly jokingly asked if Lainey’s song was better (obviously, I have no doubt that it was), to which Lainey hilariously responded:

“I mean, one ended up being a songwriter and one didn’t. At nine years old, ‘Lucky Me.'”

And of course, Kelly wanted to hear a little bit of it, asking Lainey if she even remembered any of the lines:

“I do, and it ain’t real good, but I will sing it for you.”

Lainey then sang a couple verses, and honestly, it’s pretty damn good… especially considering she was only nine when she wrote it.

She added that, even way back then, it was about a boy, and it sounds like “Lucky Me” still has potential to be a hit if she ever wants to bring it to a writing session:

“Lucky me, I feel free,
And I can’t deny that he loves me,
Which I know, that he does,

So he is the one,
Lucky me, oh,
I’m the one for him, and he’s the one for me, baby”

You can watch Lainey sing it here, and I highly recommend doing so:
