Lainey Wilson kicked off her 2023 Country With A Flare tour on January 4 in Spokane, Washington, and ever since then she's been picking up fans in their droves as she continues to promote her acclaimed 2022 project, Bell Bottom Country.
The 2023 CMT Female Video of the Year winner is now supporting Luke Combs on his blockbuster world tour. As is to be expected for an opening act, Lainey's setlist is sadly significantly shorter for these shows compared to her headlining dates.
Here you can find Lainey Wilson’s updated setlist as she continues her 2023 Country With A Flare concert tour.
So far on her hugely popular solo tour, Lainey has been centring her setlist around songs from Bell Bottom Country, with a handful of older fan-favourites sprinkled in with her newer material.
The set opener has consistently been one of these earlier hits, ‘LA’, a small-town anthem dedicated to Lainey's home state of Louisiana.
It feels apt that this is generally the first song of the show, given the fact that Lainey kicked off the New Year with a special performance of ‘LA’ during Pasadena's 134th Rose Parade.
During her supporting shows with Luke Combs, Lainey has been starting the show with the fiery ‘Hold My Halo’ instead, as well as joining Luke during his set for a joint rendition of ‘Outrunnin’ Your Memory’, which originally features Miranda Lambert.
Bell Bottom Country contains a plethora of high-octane tracks and rowdy party-starters, which have added a whole new level of energy to Lainey's 2023 performances.
Epitomising this is ‘Road Runner’ and ‘Smell Like Smoke’, the latter of which was featured in the latest Yellowstone season. Lainey appeared in the blockbuster neo-Western as a regular character, Abby, and performed a number of tracks throughout the series.
Lainey Wilson's break-out hit, ‘Things A Man Oughta Know’, unsurprisingly makes the cut for her 2023 setlist, along with her moody, ominous HARDY collaboration, ‘wait in the truck’.
During her live shows, the dark murder ballad is cleverly woven into Lainey's other 4x4-related single, ‘Heart Like A Truck’, which recently became Lainey's latest Country Radio No. 1.
Earlier in the year, when both ‘Heart Like A Truck’ and ‘wait in the truck’ leapt to No. 7 and No. 9 on the chart respectively, Lainey became the first woman in over a decade to have two songs in the Top Ten at Country Radio.
Lainey Wilson still has plenty of dates remaining on her 2023 run of shows, while the Louisiana singer-songwriter has also been booked for a slew of festivals, including Barefoot Country Music Fest, Watershed Festival, Oregon Jamboree and more.
It'll be interesting to see whether Lainey switches up the setlist for her festival appearances, or whether she sticks to the tried and tested route that's been serving her well so far.
Either way, ticket-holders to any of the country star's 2023 shows are unquestionably in for a treat.
