This week's guest is a fellow singer/songwriter who has become a mainstay on various "Artists to Watch" lists. She's got a southern accent as pure as they come, knows her away around a farm, and started her hustle performing as a Hannah Montana impersonator: LAINEY WILSON
ERNEST and Lainey start things off by talking about what it was like growing up in small-town Louisiana with a population of 300 people. This leads them to reveal Ern's inability to read a map as well as the beginning of Lainey's performing career as a Hannah Montana look-alike. Then they discuss the time Lainey's "Deddy" (that's southern for "Daddy") found a gun in her Camaro, the early days of Lainey's career in Nashville when she was living in a trailer, and why playing at nursing homes is an extremely high-pressure gig.
After laughs throughout, the two close out the episode with some discussion on Chet Hank's "White Boy Summer" movement and why this guy should definitely not be anyone's spokesperson.
All that and MUCH more. Enjoy your Monday, listenERNs!
