Lainey Wilson was a recent guest on The Kelly Clarkson Show and she praised Clarkson for her cover of “Heart Like A Truck.” Wilson says Clarkson sang the song so well and “was feeling it for everything that it is.” She said that Kelly singing her song meant so much to her.

Clarkson praised Lainey for “writing songs that inspire,” calling Lainey the baby of Dolly Parton and LeAnn Rhimes.

Wilson gave one last compliment, saying Clarkson is covering the songs better than the original artists, to which Clarkson quickly responded, “No, I’m not.” Wilson will kick off her “Country’s Cool Again” tour on May 31st.
