Hardy and Lainey Wilson‘s chilling duet, “Wait In The Truck,” has reached No. 1 on the Country Aircheck/Mediabase chart.
“I’m just so happy a song like this still has a place in country music,” says Hardy about the achievement. “Thanks to everyone involved for taking this song to the top, and for believing in this one.”
“I’m so honored Hardy asked me to join him on a song that’s had an impact on so many people and shed light on a topic a lot of folks are scared to talk about,” Wilson shares. “He is one of the most brilliant songwriters I’ve ever met and puts on one heck of a show. I can’t wait to be back out on the road together this fall!”
The Platinum hit has also earned three ACM nominations for Song of the Year, Music Event of the Year and Visual Media of the Year. Named one of the Best Songs of 2022 by the Los Angeles Times, Billboard, Wide Open Country and more, “Wait In The Truck,” has been streamed over 219 million times and earned CMT Collaborative Video of the Year for its music video.
Additionally, the duet partners will tour the South and Midwest together on the fall arena leg of Hardy’s headlining “The Mockingbird & The Crow Tour.”
With “Wait In The Truck” and Wilson’s prior No. 1 “Heart Like A Truck,” Wilson breaks a long-standing record on the Country Aircheck/Mediabase chart. The last female country artist to have two No. 1s this close together was Crystal Gayle 40 years ago at eight weeks apart.
