Lainey Wilson’s Stellar Performance at RodeoHouston with a Special Appearance by Randy Travis

Country music sensation Lainey Wilson made a memorable debut at RodeoHouston, captivating a sold-out crowd of 75,000 fans. The event, held at NRG Stadium, is a 20-day competition featuring various rodeo events. Performing on a star-shaped stage, Lainey thrilled the audience with hits like “Heart Like A Truck,” “Watermelon Moonshine,” and “Smell Like Smoke.”

Her performance drew the largest attendance of any performer at the event so far, with a total of 74,940 people. A highlight of the night was when she sang an a cappella rendition of Deana Carter’s “Strawberry Wine,” with the audience joining in for a powerful sing-along.

The concert took an exciting turn when Lainey Wilson invited country legend Randy Travis to join her on stage. Despite being unable to sing due to a stroke in 2013, Randy’s presence was warmly received, with Lainey expressing her gratitude and positioning his wheelchair center stage. Randy later expressed his appreciation for the experience on social media.
