Wilson gives "Middle Finger" to "Rock and Roll, Hoochie Koo"

Wednesday, December 28, 2022 – Lainey Wilson debuted two Spotify singles today: a reimagining of her original song "Middle Finger" and a cover of Rick Derringer's "Rock and Roll, Hoochie Koo."

In the former, Wilson delivers a cheeky salute to her middle finger. For "Rock and Roll, Hoochie Koo," Wilson fuses the high-energy song with her country twang.

"I got to bring my whole band into the studio for the first time for these Spotify singles," Wilson said. "'Rock and Roll, Hoochie Koo' is the song my band gets pumped up to before every show, so we were really excited to get in the studio with Jay Joyce and put our own flare on it. The song just feels so good. Same with 'Middle Finger' - it's an anthem we can all sing along to and feel a little better. That song has been a fan-favorite since it came out on my EP in 2018, and I'm excited for it to have another chance as a refreshed, rerecorded Spotify Single."

This fall, Wilson released "Bell Bottom Country" and made her acting debut in the season five of Paramount Network's hit series "Yellowstone "in a role created specifically for her by creator and Academy Award nominee Taylor Sheridan. The album features 16 tracks including hit single "Heart Like a Truck," which is currently Top 10 and climbing as well as "Watermelon Moonshine," "Hold My Halo," "Smell Like Smoke" and "New Friends," all of which were featured on "Yellowstone."

On Jan. 4, 2023, Wilson will embark on her first headlining tour, the Country With A Flare Tour, which has already sold out. She'll also Luke Combs on all North American dates of his 2023 World Tour.
