Lainey Wilson’s hit song “Watermelon Moonshine” has maintained its strong presence on country radio since its initial release. Remarkably, within a mere 13 weeks, the nostalgic melody has surged to claim a spot in the Top 10 of the Mediabase country charts.
This achievement marks a significant milestone as Wilson’s song becomes the fastest-climbing single by a solo female artist in the past five years, with the previous record holder being Carrie Underwood’s “Cry Pretty” back in 2018.
Crafted through a collaborative effort between Lainey Wilson, Jordan Schmidt, and Josh, “Watermelon Moonshine” is a track filled with nostalgia, where Wilson contemplates the simplicity of young love. Since the beginning, the song has garnered substantial attention, drawing comparisons to a contemporary rendition of Deana Carter’s timeless masterpiece, “Strawberry Wine.”
