Big Loud Records recording artist, Morgan Wallen premiered his new music video for “Whiskey Glasses” over the weekend on CMT’s Hot 20 Countdown. “Whiskey Glasses” is the singer’s third single off his debut album If I Know Me, following his debut song “The Way I Talk” and platinum certified single featuring Florida Georgia Line, “Up Down.” With over 16 million+ overall streams, “Whiskey Glasses” continues to gain momentum on country radio.
The entertainer showed gratitude to his fans for allowing the track to be his next single by sharing Instagram clips of concertgoers jamming to the song, captioned with “Every show ya’ll just get louder and louder on this song… and because of that, it was really you guys who chose it as my next single to country radio. Thank you for believing in it and for believing in me. Lets keep it going.”
The video pays tribute to the relatable and honest lyrics, true country sound, and the story-telling nature of the track. Directed by Justin Clough, the video begins with a heartbroken Wallen (and his guitar) reeling over losing the woman he thought he loved. The introductory clips perfectly personify the beginning lyrics and play on words,
“Pour me / Pour me another drink / Cause I don’t want to feel a thing /
No more, hell naw / I just want to sip until the pain wears off.”
Eventually, one of the singer’s friends reminds him that he should not dwell over a broken relationship, where he was cheated on, and encourages him to get pumped up for the show he is set to play that night at a local bar. From that point on, the video shows Wallen, with the help of his boys and a little liquid courage (whiskey of course), bouncing back from heartbreak.
The singer-songwriter is seen “throwing down” whiskey shots, sporting a new hair cut, and performing his song on a wild night out. Although an untraditional break-up song, the entertainers antics are easy to connect to. Check out the brand. new music video below.
In a recent press release and exclusive interview with People, the Tennessee native candidly shared his feelings about the new single, “I think we’ve all been in that situation before when you’re trying to get over somebody and you resort to [drinking]. I connected to it in many ways.”
Next up for the rising country star, he will join the fall leg of Jake Owen’s 2018 “Life’s Whatcha Make It” Tour, with the next stop in Pennsylvania. Visit Morganwallen.com for more information and keep up with Wallen on his Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.
