After Wilson performed two full songs, the speakers blew out, and the crowd was left waiting for an update on if the venue could resolve the issue. When no announcements were made, and Wilson could see that fans were getting a little antsy, she took matters into her own hands.
Wilson got out on stage with her acoustic guitar, roped one of the stage crew guys into helping her out, and did her best to give the crowd at Billy Bob’s the show they deserved.
I’m sure a lot of readers at this point are wondering how Wilson chose to project her vocals through the massive building. We all know she can belt out some songs, but even the most booming voice needs some help in a place like that.
She got a megaphone.
Yes, a good old-fashioned megaphone with the walkie-talkie detachment.
As Wilson sat on her stool and accompanied herself on guitar, her crew held the megaphone to her while she sang. It might not have been the most clear sounding event, but you have to give Wilson around of applause for trying to make something work.
This is just another instance proving that Lainey Wilson is a one-of-a-kind performer who truly cares about the time and effort made to come to see her by those in the crowd.
Rain, shine, blown speakers, and more, you know that Wilson will give her all to put on a show.
