Nashville Singer-Songwriters Kasey Tyndall And Lainey Wilson Will Play A Show At Tin Roof In Downtown St. Louis On May 26
A little bit of Nashville is coming to St. Louis this weekend when singer-songwriters Lainey Wilson and Kasey Tyndall take the Tin Roof stage on Saturday night at 7 pm.
Best friends Tyndall and Wilson are veterans of the Song Suffragettes songwriter showcase in Nashville and took rather interesting paths to country music.
Kasey Tyndall Rolls With Jesus And Rocks With Joan Jett
Kasey Tyndall was in nursing school at East Carolina University in 2014 when she won a contest put on by radio station WQDR. Her prize was the opportunity to join Keith Urban on-stage during his concert in Raleigh, North Carolina to be his duet partner on “We Were Us.” The song, co-written by Nicolle Galyon, was a #1 hit for Urban and Miranda Lambert at the time.
Tyndall’s performance with Urban led to local venues reaching out to book her for shows. She then signed with William Morris and started booking national shows, thanks largely to the confidence she gained from performing with Urban.
After moving to Nashville, Tyndall got invited to perform at The Listening Room Cafe with the Song Suffragettes and signed a publishing deal with Sony/ATV. Along with playing more than 100 shows last year, she also released her debut album, Between Salvation and Survival.
Kasey Tyndall released the music video for her latest single, “Bar That’s Open” back in February. Tyndall wrote the song, which is like an edgier version of Toby Keith’s “I Love This Bar”, with Lainey Wilson and Ashley McBryde. McBryde has seen her career take off since the release late last year of “A Little Dive Bar In Dahlonega.”

Personally, I’m most excited to see Tyndall perform ‘Jesus and Joan Jett”, which she played earlier this month at a Song Suffragettes show in Nashville. Check out the video of the performance below.

Lainey Wilson Went From Hannah Montana To A Trailer In A Nashville Parking Lot
Lainey Wilson essentially worked two jobs during high school. She would travel around the South, she’s from the small town of Baskin, Louisiana, opening for Hannah Montana at fairs, festivals and even St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. The “real” Hannah Montana, who was played by Miley Cyrus on the Disney Channel for four seasons, was of course not actually the one Wilson was opening for, as she told Taste of Country in an interview last year.
“I would open for myself. Lainey Wilson would open for Hannah Montana,” she says. “It taught me so much about stage performance and like getting out there and just doing the thing.”
After high school, Wilson moved to Nashville to pursue her musical career. She didn’t move into a house or apartment in Music City, she brought a camper trailer to town and parked it in a West Nashville recording studio parking lot. The studio belonged to a friend of Wilson’s.
Now as far as whether that studio owner was a friend of WIlson’s before she parked her trailer there or if they became friends during her two years living in the parking lot?
You could say Lainey Wilson put in “overtime” during those two years working her way into the Nashville music scene. Sony/ATV signed her to a publishing deal in November 2017.
Two months ago, Wilson released her self-titled EP. Last month, the guys over at Whiskey Riff picked her song “Waste of Good Whiskey” at their Song of the Week.
Lainey Wilson recently released the music video for her latest single, “Workin’ Overtime.”
