Lainey Wilson showed in her latest music video that she has a “Heart Like A Truck,” and the reigning iHeartRadio Music Awards Best New Country Artist performed the song on The TODAY Show in its TV debut on Tuesday morning (May 24).
Wilson “crushed” the live rendition TODAY shared in a tweet. She previously explained that, “‘Heart Like A Truck’ is all about self-discovery, growth and embracing scars as badges of honor. After all, a truck that has hit a few bumps and earned some scratches has proved itself and its tenacity—the shiny one on the lot can’t say that.” She added: “Nothing can hold me back from moving forward and finding a way to enjoy life, no matter what. I hope this song reminds y’all of that.”
Wilson premiered a music video on Friday (May 20), bringing the song to life with the story of “a newbie, underdog horse trainer that struggles to gain the acceptance of her peers,” according to a press release. Wilson tested her acting skills in an environment that felt like home, having grown up riding horses. The whole thing was “such a creatively fulfilling and thrilling experience.”
