Country music singer and Yellowstone star Lainey Wilson testified in a congressional hearing on AI and intellectual property about her unsettling experience of having her voice cloned by AI technologies.

She highlighted the concerns among artists over AI’s unauthorized use of their voices and likenesses, emphasizing the personal and professional violations they face.

Wilson also expressed worry about the misuse of AI in taking personal rights and the negative impact on her audience’s self-perception.

“I use my music and my voice to tell stories, to connect to my fans and to help them to connect to each other. My art is uniquely and literally me, my name, my likeness, my voice,” she said.

“I do not have to tell you how much of a gut punch it is to have your name, your likeness or your voice ripped from you and used in ways that you could never imagine or would never allow. It is wrong, plain and simple.”

“There aren’t many things that we can control in life, but making decisions about the use of our own selves, our own unique qualities, that should be one,” Wilson said. “I am excited about a lot of ways that artificial intelligence can be used to help people, but I’m nervous about how it can be used to take personal rights.”

“I’ve got a lot of little kids watching me, a lot of little girls and a lot of little boys. And I want to encourage them to feel comfortable in their own skin and love themselves. And I would never in a million years ever do anything like that. But at the end of the day, you know, people are like, ‘I got to see it to believe it.’ Well, they’re seeing it, and they’re believing it.”
