Tennessean Feature: Lainey Wilson releases 'empowering' new single 'Hang Tight Honey'

Lainey Wilson has released her latest single, the countrified funk-rock hybrid "Hang Tight Honey," as she prepares for the possibility of ending May as a six-month cycle in which she became the Country Music Association and Academy of Country Music's Entertainer of the Year.

The single is the latest from "Whirlwind," her forthcoming fifth studio album, scheduled to arrive on Aug. 23, 2024.

About "Hang Tight Honey" and her forthcoming album, in general, Wilson notes, "This new chapter of music is the most cathartic and personal piece of art I've ever made. I hope this record brings some peace to your whirlwind and wraps its arms around you like it did for me."

Described via a press statement as being "rooted in the spirit of hardworking women, empowerment and resilience," "Hang Tight Honey" was written by Wilson, Driver Williams, Jason Nix, and Paul Sikes and is described as an "infectious groove" bearing "empowering lyrics" and infusing classic rock stylings with a "fresh, contemporary vibe."
