The country music sensation has achieved unprecedented success, earning the praise of the rock legend and securing a spot as the latest member of the iconic Grand Ole Opry.

AceShowbiz - Lainey Wilson, the 32-year-old country star, has garnered the admiration of one of the most respected rock artists, Jon Bon Jovi. During an interview with Jelly Roll, Bon Jovi hailed Wilson as "the greatest thing ever." Wilson expressed her gratitude, revealing that Bon Jovi had written her a letter and provided his phone number.

Wilson's musical prowess has not gone unnoticed by veteran country crooner Keith Urban, who has shared valuable life lessons with her. "Keith has given me some of the best advice," Wilson said, citing his remark, "Remember Lainey, no whining on the yacht."

Wilson's status in the upcoming season of "Yellowstone" remains uncertain, but she remains hopeful. "I'm waiting!" she exclaimed. "I think it's got to be finished out and storylines got to go somewhere... Any chance I get to be a part of that universe right there, sign me up!"

On related news, Lainey's star shone brightly as she was inducted as the latest cast member of the Grand Ole Opry on June 8. Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood welcomed her into the esteemed organization, recognizing her exceptional talent and authenticity.

Wilson performed a captivating set, including collaborations with Terri Clark and Wynonna Judd. Overcome with emotion, she declared it the "biggest night of (her) life." The invitation to join the Opry came just two weeks prior, extended by Reba McEntire on the finale of "The Voice".

Wilson's induction marks a significant milestone for women in country music. Nearly 45 percent of the Opry's new cast members since 2020 have been female, solidifying the genre's commitment to diversity and inclusivity.

Trisha Yearwood paid tribute to Wilson's potential, stating, "We are honored to be here tonight. There can never be too many women at the Grand Ole Opry. When I think about the future of country music, I know with you in it we are going to be ok."

Lainey's meteoric rise continues, demonstrating her exceptional talent, unwavering determination, and the enduring power of country music.
