Lainey Wilson Brings Young Fan to Tears Onstage With Kind Gesture

One young Lainey Wilson fan is owed a pony.

Something near the front of the stage stood out to Lainey Wilson during her Friday (June 16) set at St. Louis, Mo.'s Busch Stadium. A young fan named Finley held a sign that read "Lainey, my dad bet me a pony if I get to get on stage at my first ever country concert." Wilson put Finley's father to the test — and continued a trend of country touring artists creating surprise memories for fans — by bringing Finley onstage.

Wilson hugged her special guest, who was visibly moved to tears, while addressing the pony promise. "She's going to get a pony now. I hate to tell you, but you've got to get a pony tomorrow," Wilson told Finley's father. "Finley is getting a pony y'all!"

As TikTok footage captured, Finley also got her poster signed by Wilson.
