Lainey Wilson Joins The Black Crowes At The Grand Ole Opry House For Electric “Wilted Rose” Performance

Last night The Black Crowes kicked off their Happiness Bastards Tour at the legendary Grand Ole Opry House.

The tour, appropriately named after their new, critically-acclaimed album, highlights the gritty rock ‘n roll energy that the band is known for. While the whole show, I am sure, was filled with rip-roaring guitar riffs and more, the portion of the show that I was thrilled to see already on social media includes an artist we love here at Whiskey Riff… Lainey Wilson.

Recently, the band enlisted Wilson for the track “Wilted Rose,” and whole it’s much different from Wilson’s typical twang, if you are a fan of Whiskey Myers or Blackberry Smoke, this song is right up your alley.

Wilson stepped out on stage immediately, belting out soulful harmonies with lead singer Christopher Mark Robinson before she let it rip during the song’s breakdown. Her vocals are so powerful I bet they blew the first few rows back, and just when you think it’s done, she keeps going.

“She held a wilted rose
Under a darkening sky
She held a wilted rose
Crying when I looked behind
Hear her cry, I can hear her cry…”

Talk about putting your whole back into a performance. Lainey Wilson just keeps on proving she can do it all, and rock and roll sounds pretty damn good on her.

While this video performance highlights the second half of the song that features Wilson’s vocals the whole track is well worth a listen.
