As we learned last weekend during Noah Kahan's two-night stint at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena, there's something special – and almost sacred – about seeing a show in Music City.

This time around, Lainey Wilson graced the city by kicking off the U.S. leg of her Country's Cool Again Tour at Ascend Amphitheater on Friday (May 31), which also happened to be the grand opening of her brand new honky tonk, Bell Bottoms Up.

While night one featured guest appearances from the likes of Wynonna Judd and Terri Clark, it was simply no match for the tricks the reigning CMA and ACM Entertainer of the Year had up her sleeve for Saturday (June 1).

After opening sets from country risers Ian Munsick and Zach Top, Wilson was quick to bring out the first of several special guests for the night during the fifth song, an unreleased ballad that could be titled 'Good Horses Always Come Home.'

Singing the first verse and chorus perched atop her trusty red pickup truck, perfectly placed at center stage, the crowd was absolutely stunned by the sudden appearance of country stalwart Miranda Lambert, who happily joined in for the rest of the new tune. The pair ended the song acoustically, both sitting side by side in the back of the pickup.

Lambert also returned to the stage just before the high energy encore to assist the 'Watermelon Moonshine' hitmaker on a cover of her own smash hit, 'Kerosene.'

However, Lambert was just the tip of the iceberg for the lucky Nashville crowd as the show veered into its multi-song encore.

Beginning with a solo acoustic moment that found Wilson singing portions of her recent collaborations, including 'Never Say Never' and 'wait in the truck,' she shocked the audience once again with Aussie shredder, Keith Urban, who joined her for the live debut of their new duet, 'GO HOME W U.'

As if that wasn't enough, 'Save Me' duet partner, Jelly Roll, also strutted onto the stage to share a moving rendition of their award-winning tune, marking his second weekend popping up in Music City.

The newest Opry member-elect treated fans to a jam-packed setlist, that saw her teasing several new songs that can be expected from her forthcoming 2024 album, Whirlwind, such as the sentimental '4x4 By You' and rowdy 'Bell Bottoms Up,' aptly named after her shiny new Broadway bar.

It was truly a night for the country music history books, and one that we won't forget anytime soon.

Wilson's momentum continues to build and her star consistently keeps rising as 2024 shapes up to be yet another hugely successful year for the Bell Bottom Country trailblazer.
