Lainey Wilson is turning heads with the release of her brand new, Dolly Parton-inspired track, “WWDD.”
Short for “What Would Dolly Do,” the country anthem finds Wilson looking to the beloved entertainer to help her navigate life.
“WWDD/ That’s the bottom line for me/ My go-to compass and my golden rule/ When life rings my southern bell/ I just gotta ask myself, hell/ What would Dolly do,” Wilson sings throughout the chorus.
The rising star also released a video to accompany the song. With her spunky personality on full display, Wilson channels her inner Dolly Parton while sporting big hair and an animal print ensemble.
“I’ve been playin’ a few new songs at my shows and people seem to be liking them so I figured I should put ‘em out so they can keep liking them. I’m kicking off the release series with ‘WWDD’ because people have started singing along to it before the song is even over,” Wilson shared in a statement. “It makes sense. I don’t know anyone who don’t love Dolly. From her sense of humor, to her look, to her songwritin’, to her singin’ to how she has such an incredible giving heart, to how she’s an awesome businesswoman…Dolly does everything just a little better with a little bow on top. Dolly is an international icon and role model for a lot of folks around the world, so it’s an easy song for a lot of people to relate to.”
Co-written by Wilson, Casey Beathard and Michael Heeney, “WWDD” is a much-needed dose of pure country fun.
