“Dear Hippie” — Lainey Wilson Teases New Song Inspired By Her Dog, Hippie Mae

Lainey Wilson country music

Lainey Wilson is so real for this.

The country star announced her forthcoming album Whirlwind earlier this week, and I can hardly wait to hear all the new music.

Her recent song “Country’s Cool Again” will be included on the 14-song tracklist, but other than, we haven’t heard much in the way of teasers or new tunes from the Louisiana native at all, though she has done a ton of features for artists on other songs. She released her Grammy-winning Bell Bottom Country album in 2022, and of course, has had a pretty inane last year or two that’s kept her really busy.

But another new song seems to be coming soon, as Lainey shared a teaser on Instagram earlier of a video of her writing a letter to her dog, Hippie Mae, who she hadn’t seen for about a month until recently because Lainey’s been touring across the pond.

She shared the video with a caption that reads:

“Dear Hippie…”

In addition, she added the “winking” emoji, which definitely means Lainey has something up her sleeve… you can also hear a clip of the rocking new song, where I heard some heavy guitar chords, if you watch all the way to the end:

And speaking of everything Lainey’s accomplished in the last year or two, the Louisiana native recently scored her seventh $1 hit at country radio with “Wildflowers and Wild Horses,” and is planning to open up a bar in downtown Nashville, Bell Bottoms Up, this summer too, along with releasing the new record.

Stay tuned…
