After leveling up to country music's upper echelon, Lainey Wilson is wasting little time in releasing new music. Her new album "Whirlwind" will be released Aug. 23.

Why it matters: Wilson is the reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year and her new album will be among the most anticipated country releases in 2024.

Driving the news: "This new chapter of music is the most cathartic and personal piece of art I've ever made," Wilson said in a press release.

  • The record was produced by country heavy-hitter Jay Joyce.

Zoom out: Wilson's next era will include a honky-tonk in downtown Nashville. A Wilson themed bar is set to replace FGL House on Third Avenue South.
