Country Star Lainey Wilson Actually Lives in the Music City! Details on the State She Calls Home

I used to watch the current CMA Entertainer of the Year frequently upload renditions of old country songs to her YouTube account, 

but my favorite is this rendition of "Truth Hurts" by pop artist Lizzo. 

Before anything else, that song will be in your head for days. And trust me when I say that Lainey's rendition is superior to Lizzo's— 

No disrespect intended toward Lizzo's original, which became an international smash hit after a rerelease in 2019. 

In 2017, it was released as a radio single but did not even manage to make it onto the charts, despite the fact that it was written by Melissa Jefferson, 

Eric Frederic, Jesse Saint John, Steven Cheung, and Amina Bogle-Barriteau (yes, that many people really worked on it...). 

Following its 2019 TikTok viral success, Lizzo added the song as a bonus track on the deluxe edition of her third studio album, Cuz I Love You, which was released in 2019. 

"Truth Hurts" is an exception to my usual rule of not loving Top 40 pop music; the record has since been certified 7x Platinum in the US by the RIAA.
