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

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…
