Lainey Wilson’s ‘Watermelon Moonshine’ Breaks Country Radio History

Lainey Wilson‘s ‘Watermelon Moonshine’ is making history.

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.

Since the beginning, the song has garnered substantial attention, drawing comparisons to a contemporary rendition of Deana Carter’s timeless masterpiece, “Strawberry Wine.”

Recently, Wilson also dropped the music video for the track, giving fans a behind-the-scenes look into the production of the project.
