Everything You Wanted to Know About Country Singer-Songwriter Priscilla Block

Last week, country singer-songwriter Priscilla Block dropped her debut album, Welcome to the Block Party, and we haven't stopped listening to it since.

The album, featuring stunning songs including "Just About Over You," "Thick Thighs" and "I Bet You Wanna Know," is an instant classic—and that's not the only exciting thing that happened for Priscilla last week. She was also nominated in the 2022 Academy of Country Music Awards for New Female Artist of the Year, and we're rooting for her to take it home next month. Point is, we're obsessed, and here's everything we learned about Priscilla as our latest Woman Crush Wednesday.
