Twinnie & Lainey Wilson

First Published November 2022



Following on from the release of the powerful EP WELCOME TO THE CLUB earlier this summer, British artist TWINNIE rounds out 2022 in style with her fantastic new Christmas single titled ELF YOURSELFscheduled for a November 25th release which will deliver all the playful cheer you need this holiday season. Twinnie has also just shared the official music video for latest single BAD, BAD BITCHwhich is out now.

Throughout the tongue-in-cheek lyrics  of Elf Yourself’ we witness Twinnie getting into the festive spirit with this holiday themed break-up song that celebrates leaving a bad relationship behind and the joy of stepping into Christmas alone knowing it’s what’s best for you – and this is all underpinned by the cheery production that is so brilliantly put together. Meanwhile, the official video for Bad Bad Bitch, shows the satirical side of the singer/songwriter and captures the essence of her storytelling-based artistry and further enhances her growing reputation as an all round artist.

Elf Yourself is a fun-filled, pop-country offering that has all the hallmarks of a Christmas classic allowing for Twinnie to bring 2022 to a close in wonderful fashion – this is one song that you’re definitely going to want blasting when you’re wrapping those presents or putting the Christmas tree up, and with the new music video shows the good, the bad, and the ugly as she gets to know her dates and leaves nothing unsaid. 

Speaking about Elf Yourself, Twinnie says,“Elf Yourself’ feels like a really great tongue-in-cheek message to send to anyone you’re disliking around Christmas time, and it let me get to grips with showing my personality too, and the official video will also star my nieces Demi and Victoria which I’m also really excited to share.”

And referring to the video for Bad Bad Bitch, Twinnie adds, “This is the apotheosis of empowerment, freedom of expression and authenticity. It’s a playful reality of any relationship and me being completely transparent about the good, and the bad sides which is something in all relationships we inevitably experience with people. Bad Bad Bitch is also referred to as a woman who is badass, independent, confident, speaks her mind and makes her own path.”

A real-world traveler with a gypsy heart and a storyteller’s soul, Twinnie delivers vibrant lyrics and effervescent melodies through her vivacious soundscape.  Twinnie is both a fresh and a real voice for the outliers everywhere, and – as The Telegraph remarked –  a “pop-country star on the rise with a personality as powerful as her magnificent voice”  

Following the UK success of her 2020 album Hollywood Gypsy, a mainstay at Radio 2 with an Album of the Week accolade, her track Bad Bad Bitch is a self-affirming, bold offering that boasts self-confidence and female empowerment. Twinnie, wrote People magazine, is “speaking her mind and creating a safe space for fans to be themselves” . A creative fixture in Nashville since 2015, Twinnie’s new music was written, recorded and produced in Music City.

In February of last year we had the pleasure of sitting down for a chat with the one-in-a-million LAINEY WILSON, just ahead of the release of her SAYIN’ WHAT I’M THINKIN‘ album. Here’s a little reminder about part of what we said at the time…

“In short, Lainey’s music, much like any encounter or experience with the lady herself, will leave you with a great big smile on your face, and with your world brightened immeasurably by the light she pours into life through everything she does. Am I a fan? Damn right, I am! And if you’re not one already as well, then you will be as soon as you hear Neon Diamonds – the opener on Sayin’ What I’m Thinkin’ – kick in. Much like Lainey, it’s pure country bliss.” 

Well, I guess we weren’t the only ones to rate Lainey so highly, because earlier this month the BMG artist took home the highly coveted trophies for Female Vocalist of the Year and New Artist of the Year during her Country Music Association (CMA) Awards debut. Wilson – the most nominated artist of the night – is the first artist to win both awards in the same year since Carrie Underwood in 2006. 

Following the award ceremony, Wilson performed current radio single Heart Like A Truck from her new album Bell Bottom Country on Jimmy Kimmel Live! 

At the CMA Awards ceremony, Wilson performed her current radio collaboration wait in the truck (the song title is intentionally all lower-case) with HARDY and Chasin’ That Neon Rainbow with Jon PardiDierks Bently, and Carrie Underwood during Alan Jackson’s Lifetime Achievement Award tribute. Wilson also partnered with Crown Royal to honour active-duty military and veterans, and, during the telecast, presented their $50,000 donation to CreatiVets, an organisation dedicated to empowering wounded veterans to heal through the arts and music.

Prior to the show, she walked the red carpet in a custom Laura Citron suit, Alexis Bittar and Mud Lowery jewellery, Sam Edelman shoes, and a Standard Hatworks hat.

Following a national broadcast on ABC in the US, highlights from what were the 56th Annual CMA Awards were broadcast in the UK on BBC Radio 2 on November 13th, and will be available to watch on BBC Four on November 18th.

In March 2023, Wilson will be making her highly anticipated return to the UK to perform on the main stage at C2C: Country to Country Festival in London, Glasgow and Dublin. Tickets and more information can be found at

Wilson’s successes last week came just days before she made her acting debut, starring in the fifth season of Paramount Network’s mega hit TV show Yellowstone, which became available to stream here on Paramount Plus on November 13th. Wilson will take on the role of Abby, a character Taylor Sheridan (co-creator of the show) crafted specifically for her, where she will play a musician and perform new original music.

As well as now holding the title of the CMA’s 2022 Female Vocalist of the Year, and New Artist of the Year, Lainey is also the ACM’s (Academy of Country Music) New Female Artist of the Year for 2022. One of country music’s fastest rising new stars, she has been named to nearly every Artist to Watch list, being crowned Billboard’s Top New Country Artist of 2021, and earning CMT Breakout Artist of the Year for 2022. 

The Louisiana native is one of Nashville’s hottest and most buzzed-about new artists. Landing her first #1 with her PLATINUM Certified ACM Song of the Year Things A Man Oughta Know, nearly ten years to the day after leaving her small farming community in a camper-trailer to chase her dreams. Now, Wilson has won over legions of fans with her signature ‘bell bottom country’ sound and aesthetic, which blends traditional country with a modern yet retro flare. A prolific and sought-after songwriter (having co-writer credits on songs by artists including Luke Combs, Flatland Cavalry and more), Lainey is a fresh, fierce voice in Nashville.

With a rockstar stage presence, her artistry has taken her across the globe, performing for sold-out crowds throughout the US, UK, and Germany with notable names like the aforementioned Jon Pardi, Luke Combs, HARDY, and Ashley McBryde too, as well as many more. After topping the Country radio charts for a second time with the two-week #1 hit, Never Say Never with Cole Swindell, her current single Heart Like a Truck is Top 25 and climbing, with the HARDY collaboration wait in the truck sitting close behind in the Top 35.
