Lainey Wilson Tracks Down Country Breakdancers For ‘Grease’
Lainey Wilson released a new video for her song “Grease” today (5/8), and the latest video has her making some serious dance moves along with some breakdancing country fans she spotted at a show.
Lainey posted a clip of the new video on Instagram. She wrote, “Grabbed me a @sonicdrivein Strawberry Sprite Zero and threw ourselves a parking lot party for the Grease music video. I saw these guys about a year ago at one of my shows in Charlotte, NC, and they were bustin’ a move out in the crowd. I thought it was the coolest thing they were breakdancing to country music, so I tracked them down on socials and asked them if they’d want to be a part of this official video..now, here we are! Y’all check out the official video now!”
Fans loved the new video, and many responded to her post with one writing, “So good and love that you tracked them down!” Another fan commented, “That is so fun!” One more fan said, “Very North Louisiana-like to have @sonicdrivein in the video… girl knows we gotta have our sonic drinks.”

Wilson recently talked about knowing Luke Combs before they were famous. She’s opening stadium dates for him on tour this spring. Wilson said in a recent interview, “He used to come over to my camper trailer, and we’d write songs, and he’d drink my cold drinks and eat my snacks, and now he invited me on the road with him. He just believed in me from the beginning, and he put his money where his mouth is.”
Lainey also touched on playing a part in the super-popular Yellowstone TV series. She noted of the role, “I got to be myself playing the role of Abby. I got to wear bell bottoms, and sing my own songs, so I got to play with a little salt and pepper. I had a kissing scene; I thought I was gonna end up on the prayer list back home! So I had to step out of my comfort zone. It was such a cool learning experience.”
