Lainey Wilson to Guest on the Black Crowes’ New Album

Lainey Wilson has collaborated with the Black Crowes on a new song that will feature on Happiness Bastards, the rock band's first studio album in 15 years. 

Wilson performs harmony with vocalist Chris Robinson on "Wilted Rose," a gospel-tinged song.

According to Rich Robinson, the group's guitarist, the idea for Wilson's guest appearance began backstage at last year's CMT Awards in Austin, 

 when Wilson told the Robinson brothers that she was a longtime admirer. The Crowes

performed their 1990 hit ballad "She Talks to Angels" on the CMT Awards alongside their Nineties rock colleague Darius Rucker.

"I'm so excited to be apart of the new the Black Crowes record," Wilson tells Rolling Stone. "I'm a tremendous fan of their music, 

their legacy has certainly endured the test of time. I can't wait for folks to hear our song 'Wilted Rose.' It's a mix of country, rock, and soul."

Wilson has a long history of rock and roll. She frequently performs Rick Derringer's "Rock and Roll, Hoochie Koo" and Queen's "Fat Bottomed Girls"

 in concert, and she recorded a rendition of 4 Non Blondes' 1992 radio hit "What's Up?" for her most recent CD Bell Bottom Country. 

"What's Up?" was released the same year as the Crowes' The Southern Harmony and Musical Companion, and it's been a secret weapon in Wilson's set since her bar days.
