Lainey Wilson Reflects On Early Love With “Watermelon Moonshine”

Lainey Wilson Watermelon Moonshine

Lainey Wilson has a new album coming out in October, and her latest single “Watermelon Moonshine” is a preview of what’s to come. “Watermelon Moonshine” is a tale of young love. It’s in a similar vein to Deana Carter‘s “Strawberry Wine”, evocative of those drinks teenagers drink to ease them in to alcohol. Watermelon moonshine is Lainey Wilson and her partner’s pick of poison in this coming-of-age track. Its dreamy melody is the perfect backdrop to the nostalgia the track conjures.

Drinkin’ watermelon moonshine

A cup of burn with a little lime

Parking back in them kudzu vines

I was his and every bit of that boy was mine

‘Til we ought to know what love was

That we were learnin’ on a sweet buzz

There’s never nothin’ like a first time

And mine’s always gonna taste like

She’s excited to share what she has in store, which includes a cover of 4 Non Blondes‘ “What’s Up”. “Sure, I love a good pair of bell bottoms, but Bell Bottom Country to me has always been about the flare and what makes someone unique — I have really embraced mine, and I hope y’all can hear that across this project,” says Lainey. We’re looking forward to what she has in store! Stream “Watermelon Moonshine” below. Follow Lainey Wilson on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for more updates on what’s to come on this new album.
