Lainey Wilson delivered one of the stand-out performances of the evening at the 2024 CMT Awards in Austin, Texas, with the country megastar serenading the packed-out audience at the Moody Center with her latest release, ‘Country's Cool Again’.

We've come to expect a certain level of poise and charisma from Lainey Wilson when she takes the stage, and she undoubtedly brought this in spades during her 2024 CMT Awards set.

Unlike the simmering drama and intensity that underpins her current country radio single, ‘Wildflowers and Wild Horses’, ‘Country's Cool Again’ is a fun, light-hearted commentary on the explosion in popularity currently being enjoyed by the genre.

As Wilson showcased her stellar vocals and unrivalled stage presence during the 2024 CMT Awards, it felt like a touching full-circle moment for the 2024 Grammy winner. Here, crooning ‘Country's Cool Again’, was one of the key figures that has helped to indeed make country "cool" again over the past couple of years.

The 2023 CMA Entertainer of the Year dropped the wonderfully twangy, traditional-leaning track back in February, and ‘Country's Cool Again’ has since established itself as a fan-favourite. Lainey is gearing up to embark on her 2024 tour of the same name at the end of May, with many listeners speculating that it'll also serve as the title for her upcoming album, which is expected to arrive later in the year.

Heading into the CMTs with three nominations, Wilson's jubilant, high-energy performance capped off another successful awards ceremony for the singer-songwriter.

During the star-studded evening, the 2024 CMT Awards enjoyed captivating performances from Kelsea Ballerini, who did double duty as the night's sole host, as well as Parker McCollum & Brittney Spencer, Trisha Yearwood, Bailey Zimmerman and more.
