Lainey Wilson has notched her fifth consecutive No. 1 at country radio with “Watermelon Moonshine.”
The summer love anthem is the second single from Wilson’s critically acclaimed album, Bell Bottom Country, following another No. 1 hit, “Heart Like A Truck.” “Watermelon Moonshine” was written by Wilson, Josh Kear and Jordan Schmidt.
Earlier this month, “Watermelon Moonshine” hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart, making her the first solo female artist in two years to have a song reach No. 1 on that chart. The last solo female to top the Billboard Country airplay was Wilson with “Things a Man Oughta Know” hitting the top spot in September 2021.
“I’m so honored that ‘Watermelon Moonshine’ hit No. 1 on country radio this week! This song was co-written with two incredible songwriters, Josh Kear and Jordan Schmidt, and I couldn’t be more proud listening to folks sing it back at shows,” Wilson shares. “This track represents the storytelling I grew up with and reflects on that young love we all like to reminisce on.”
Wilson continues to prove her staying power in the music industry, as she was recently named the most-nominated artist at the upcoming CMA Awards with a record-breaking nine nominations, including Album and Entertainer of The Year. She also previously broke the record for the shortest gap between No. 1 singles at country radio this year with “Heart Like a Truck” and her “Wait In The Truck” collaboration with Hardy.
