The song was released as the second single off her Redneck Hollywood EP and was also part of her major-label debut studio album Sayin’ What I’m Thinkin’.

About The Song 

The fiery newcomer wrote “Things A Man Oughta Know” with Jason Nix and Jonathan Singleton, wherein she listed a few things that she believes a man should know. This includes simple things like changing the tire to shooting a shotgun. 

But as the song goes, Lainey Wilson sends a clear message of what is even more valuable to know – and that’s not giving up on the woman you love and treating people right. 

“The song is really about having good character,” Wilson said. “It’s about treating people the way that you want to be treated.” She also noted that the song speaks to the values her parents taught her as a child, along with the lessons she learned from her previous romantic relationships.

It comes with a music video filled with personal touches, such as some footage being shot right in the singer’s own kitchen. Some of her close friends made an appearance too, including Luke Combs‘ band member, Kurt Ozan. It earned a Breakthrough Video of the Year nomination during the 2021 CMT Music Awards.
