Morgan Wallen Releases Personal Letter to His Fans

Nearly ten weeks after leaving the spotlight due to racial slurs controversy, Morgan Wallen took to social media today, April 13th, to release a personal letter to his fans.

Morgan Wallen has had a tumultuous year. He released his record Dangerous: The Double Album early this year, but unfortunately was dropped from radio and suspended by his label over the use of a racial slur, which was captured on video. Despite that, his record spent ten consecutive weeks at the top of the all-genre charts, shattering previous records for country artists.

Today, Wallen broke his silence, sharing a handwritten four-page letter to fans on his social media platforms. The singer-songwriter thanked fans for their dedication and their love, sharing “I’m so aware that it was you all who have bought it and played it as much as you have so I truly feel I share this honor with you.”

Despite being appreciative of his fans, Wallen shared that he still has some learning and growing to do. He declared that he will not be performing at any festivals or tours this summer. He still encourages fans to support country music and go to all these shows.

Ending the letter, Wallen shares an uplifting sentiment, “My story is far from over and getting back out to see ya’ll is all I can think about. So just know you’ll be seeing me sooner than later.”

Morgan Wallen’s ‘Dangerous: The Double Album’ Spends 10th Week At #1

Morgan Wallen’s Dangerous: The Double Album tops charts for the 10th consecutive week, making the project one of only three albums ever to do so.

For ten consecutive weeks, Morgan Wallen’s newest record Dangerous: The Double Album has sat firmly in the #1 spot since its debut on the Billboard Top 200 Chart. Despite the chaos surrounding the budding superstar, the album is shattering records.

Dangerous: The Double Album is the first record since Whitney Houston’s Whitney, in 1987, to spend its initial 10 weeks at number one. Joining Houston’s album along with Stevie Wonder’s 1976 album, Songs In The Key Of Life,  Wallen’s sophomore project becomes only the third album of all-time that has reached this accolade. Even more, the album is currently on track to overtake Drake’s record-breaking album, Views, which spent 13 nonconsecutive weeks in the lead in 2016.

If that’s not impressive enough, Wallen’s record is the first-ever country album to spend more than six weeks topping the charts. It’s also only the fourth album across genres to spend at least nine weeks atop the charts.

Despite how some may feel about Wallen and his newest record, it’s fair to say that Dangerous: The Double Album is a certified masterpiece. Only time will tell what this news continues to mean for Wallen and his place in country music.

Morgan Wallen Dropped from Radio and Suspended By Label Over Racial Slur

After a video surfaced of Morgan Wallen outside of his home in Tennessee Sunday evening, saying profanities and a racial slur – radio stations across the country as well as streaming services have removed his music from their playlists.

“I’m embarrassed and sorry. I used an unacceptable and inappropriate racial slur that I wish I could take back,” Wallen shared in a statement to TMZ. “There are no excuses to use this type of language, ever. I want to sincerely apologize for using the word. I promise to do better.”

Just a few hours after the news broke, his record label Big Loud Records which is in partnership with Republic Records posted “In the wake of recent events, Big Loud Records has made the decision to suspend Morgan Wallen’s recording contract indefinitely. Republic Records fully supports Big Loud’s decision and agrees such behavior will not be tolerated.”

Country artists, members of the country music community, and fans across the country have shared their feelings and emotions regarding the incident. This all takes place as his recently released double album continues to break records and sits at the top of the charts.

Morgan Wallen Drops Two Brand New Songs

As fans are still digesting all 30 songs from Morgan Wallen’s, Dangerous: The Double Album, the country superstar added to the total, releasing two brand new songs – “This Side of a Dust Cloud” and “Bandaid on a Bullet Hole” — and a live performance recording of “Sand in My Boots’, available on all streaming platforms. Keep reading below as we dig deeper into the new tracks.

Apparently, the multi-platinum artist wasn’t satisfied with only having ten songs on the all-genre charts. “This Side of a Dust Cloud” and “Bandaid on a Bullet Hole” were exclusive songs on the Target CD and vinyl editions, however, due to a manufacturing error, the bonus tracks were not included in the original CD production. Now, regardless of how you listen, these tracks are available everywhere and continue promoting the album’s theme of heartbreak and vulnerability.

“This Side of a Dust Cloud”’s message is very similar to Jon Pardi’s “Ain’t Always the Cowboy,” as Wallen sings how it’s usually him “doing the leaving” and being the heartbreaker, but this time he’s on the other side of the breakup. Although the story sounds depressing, the tempo of the song would suggest otherwise. The songwriters Matt Dragstrem, Chase McGill, Josh Thompson, and Wallen, elected to use a more upbeat production in this track.

“Guess she beat me at my own game / Thing about a two lane / Guess it’s gotta work both ways / What goes around comes around came around and here I am now / On this side of a dust cloud”

“Bandaid On A Bullet Hole” is much darker; a piano is the only instrument that backs Wallen’s somber voice. Written by Wallen with Ashley Gorley and Jacob Durrett, the man in the story tries everything from whiskey, old country songs, and other women to get over this particular girl, but nothing seems to be working.

Wallen sings “If I was heartbroke and lonely, I’d head on back down to the bar. Find me a companion, but you left a canyon, can’t nobody fill this heart.” ‘Bandaid on a bullet hole’ is a comical phrase, yet extremely profound as it captures the severity of this singer’s feelings.

On top of having ten songs charting on the Billboard Hot 100, Dangerous: The Double Album has topped the album charts for the past two weeks. These new tracks will certainly help Wallen stay at that spot for next week. As the album was released, we caught up with Wallen to talk about the songwriting process, releasing it in 2021, and giving fans exactly what they want: a ton of new music. Watch the virtual interview below.

Morgan Wallen LIVE From The Ryman – A Full Recap

Country break-out superstar, Morgan Wallen released his highly anticipated sophomore double album, Dangerous last Friday. Within three days, it pulled in over 100 million streams, which is the most single-week on-demand audio streams for a country album in history. He celebrated this tremendous feat with a live show at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville in front of real, non-cardboard, socially-distanced fans. Viewers at home could stream it live on Facebook and YouTube.

The crowd of only a few hundred sounded like a few thousand when the curtains drew and Wallen was alone on stage with his piano. The heart-wrenching “Sand in My Boots” may be a slow song and an odd choice for a show opener to get the crowd into it, but the fans did not seem to mind, as a sense of magic gloomed over the excited crowd – just happy to finally be seeing a live show again featuring their favorite artist. When that song was over, the full band took the stage and gave the audience a more traditional opening as Wallen sang the more rocking “Somethin’ Country.” The long break from touring did not seem to affect Wallen’s vocal stamina as he rapped the chorus effortlessly.

The singer-songwriter stopped for a moment to take in the whole scene as if already knowing he was living through a very special part of his own history. Wallen told the crowd, which included his family, members of his team, and members of his fan club that this was a special night, not only because it was his first show since March, but it was his first time headlining the legendary Ryman Auditorium. He also informed the crowd that he will be playing all new songs and “if you came to hear our old stuff, you’re in the wrong place.” He followed the speech with a performance of “Dangerous”, the title track off the double album.

Wallen kept the party going with more songs from the fun, second half of the album including “Still Goin Down” and “Beer Don’t” but also sprinkled in a lot of songs from his more emotional first half such as “Wasted on You” and “Neon Eyes.” He admitted that “Wasted on You” was one of his favorites and most personal songs on the record, and was humbled to see it is one of the most-streamed songs so far.

“My first album, it kind of got rushed out a little bit just because I was out on the road touring and I had to go back and forth trying to get it done. But with this one I got to be home, I got to be more a part of it, so this one feels more like my baby,” Wallen confessed. “I’m a little bit closer to this album than I was the first and I hope you guys end up closer to it as well.” Next, he performed a song that admittedly wasn’t exactly something he had experienced, but a beautiful story nonetheless called “Silverado for Sale.”

Throughout the album, Wallen is very sentimental towards his hometowns of Sneedville and Knoxville, Tennessee. This is apparent on many songs such as “Rednecks, Red Letters, Red Dirt” and “865,” both of which he performed during the show. The latter is already a fan-favorite, as many audience members made it apparent that they already had the phone number memorized.

After a fiery performance of “Warning,” Ben Burgess came on stage to sing “Outlaw” with Wallen. Burgess was rocking a Tennessee Orange western shirt, matching Wallen’s Tennessee Orange long sleeve and signature cut-sleeve flannel.

Wallen performed his first number-one song off the album “More Than My Hometown” before exiting the stage for the first time since the start of his nearly hour and a half set. He came back out several minutes later for the encore and sang “Cover Me Up,” marking the official final performance of what was an incredible night for Wallen and his fans.

Wallen fit 19 songs total into his hour and fifteen-minute set, giving the fans in attendance and even the viewers at home the feeling of a real, live show– a feeling that we have all missed so dearly during the pandemic. It is comforting to know that there is now a vaccine out there and we are getting closer to having concerts back because there is no feeling that can match the rush of seeing your favorite artist take the stage in-person. In case you missed it, catch the entire show here:

Country Artists Show Their Comedic Side on Saturday Night Live

NBC’s famed show Saturday Night Live has featured various country artists over the year, such as Morgan Wallen and Luke Combs. Check out our list of country artists who have been on SNL below.

After some initial drama surrounding his invitation to perform on NBC’s Saturday Night Live, Morgan Wallen performed his new songs and a skit with the cast earlier this month. His amazing performance of  “7 Summers” and “Still Goin’ Down” prompted us to look back at the catalog of amazing country artists, who have also been featured on the prominent show.

Chris Stapleton + Sturgill Simpson

Back in 2018, one of the best vocalists in the country music genre, Chris Stapleton was invited to be a musical guest on SNL. The singer-songwriter performed both “Midnight Train to Memphis” and “Hard Livin.” As a surprise to fans, the great Sturgill Simpson joined Stapleton in his performance.

 

Luke Combs

Arguably one of the most successful artists in the genre, Luke Combs was also featured on SNL. Just before the pandemic struck, Combs graced the SNL stage to help kick off Super Bowl weekend. Singing his hits, “Beer Never Broke My Heart” and “Lovin’ on You,” Combs’ performance was one to remember.

 

Kacey Musgraves

It seems that Kacey Musgraves has been invited to perform on every show known to man at this point, so Saturday Night Live was just another notch on her belt. Back in 2018, the songstress performed both “High Horse” and “Slow Burn” off her critically-acclaimed record Golden Hour. The singer even partook in a skit with Amy Schumer that was not aired, but fans can check it out below.

Thomas Rhett

No stranger to New York City stages, Thomas Rhett performed on SNL in May of 2019. At the time Rhett debuted two songs off his record Center Point Road, including “Look What God Gave Her” and “Don’t Threaten Me with a Good Time.” His performance fired up the crowd and further proved that country music deserves a spotlight in mainstream media.

 

Blake Shelton

Paving the way for the country artists after him in a sense, Blake Shelton performed both songs and a skit in a 2015 episode of the hit show. Between his ‘Hee Haw’ sketch (below) and his vocal performance, it is clear why Shelton continues to be a staple in the genre.

We hope in the future SNL continues to showcase more country artists on their stages, especially some more female country artists.

Morgan Wallen: ‘Dangerous’ The Double Album – Review

Morgan Wallen’s highly-anticipated record Dangerous: The Double Album is officially available now, January 8th on all streaming platforms. We spoke with the superstar about the process of writing the project, releasing it in 2021, and giving fans exactly what they want; a ton of new music. Check out the full virtual interview in the video below, then read further on and check out our full album review as we dig a little deeper into the music.

Morgan Wallen is an artist that is on the brink of superstardom with international recognition during his few years in the limelight. His debut record If I Know Me continues to garner him more and more fans and accolades, but his brand new sophomore album Dangerous is sure to secure his staying power. The double album is one of a kind, gritty, elevated, and creative, all qualities that Wallen clearly possesses in his own right.

With thirty songs in total, plus two bonus songs exclusively for Target buyers, the singer-songwriter shatters any expectations that fans or industry executives might have had for his sophomore project. Each of the songs convey a different side of Wallen’s personality, but they all bare a part of his soul and heart. He sings and writes about universal truths in love and heartbreak, but also expresses his undeniable gratitude for his country roots and values.

Disc one opens up with “Sand In My Boots,” a track that combines all the elements. Wallen recounts falling in love with a girl, who he thought accepted his upbringing and hometown. It turns out that was not the case, but still, the singer finds a way to convey some hope in the expressive song. Lyrics like “I said girl you never seen stars like the ones back home / And she said maybe I should see them for myself” make you envision a love affair like this one.

Previously released songs and fan-favorites “More Than My Hometown” and “7 Summers” both have a similar feel to the opening track. All create imagery like no other, and it’s clear that Wallen knows a thing or two about heartbreak. On the contrary, brand new song, “Silverado For Sale” creates imagery in a different way. The artist tells the story of falling in love and needing to sell his truck to have the life he wants with his soulmate. Simple, yet beautiful, the more you listen to the love song, the more you will recognize how certain gestures can touch your heart.

Wallen also included his rendition of “Heartless” and of course, “This Bar” on the record. The latter is reflective and personal. The singer shares personal accounts of his 21st birthday, a break-up, and other experiences that have helped him grow into the person he is today. His willingness to share and be honest with his fans through his music is one of the many reasons we have fallen in love with his artistry.

“Making mistakes and making new friends / I was growing up and nothing made sense / Learning how to live with a broken heart / I found myself in this bar”

That reflective nature is also evident in songs like “Whiskey’d My Way” and “Livin’ The Dream,” which both happen to be two of our favorites off the record. On the former, Wallen considers all the options that he could have used to get over his ex, admitting that whiskey was what worked. Singing that he should be in the “moving on hall of fame” and later declaring “Tequila made me crazy / Cold Beer wouldn’t do / So I whiskey’d my way over you” just further shows Wallen’s ingenuity with lyrics.

“Livin’ The Dream” which was pre-released with songs “Somebody’s Problem” and “Still Goin’ Down” reflects on a little bit more than a break-up. One of Wallen’s most honest and raw songs to date, “Livin’ The Dream” co-written by Wallen and HARDY, as well as, Ben Burgess and Jacob Durrett, expresses the less glamourous side of success and fame. With this song, Wallen gives fans a vulnerable account of his thoughts and feelings in what seems like a journal entry, including both his struggles with alcohol and his priorities.

Continuing to lean into the vulnerability, Wallen included a song with “Little Rain” vibes on the record. “Me on Whiskey” is flirty and sensual in all the best ways. “Outlaw” a collaboration with Ben Burgess also conveys a similar, yet hopeful message on finding and holding on to love. Wallen also collaborates with superstar, Chris Stapleton. Their song “Only Thing That’s Got” is a brooding, break-up song with killer guitar riffs and even better vocals.

Of course, it would not be a Wallen record if the singer didn’t include songs that were primed for concert season and live performances, as well as, express his immense pride for East Tennessee Roots. “Somethin’ Country,” “Beer Don’t,” “Still Goin’ Down,” “Country A$$ Shit,” and “Whatcha Think Of Country Now” all remind the listeners that Wallen is a good ole boy and proud of it. Out of the group of songs all primed for the stage, “Whatcha Think Of Country Now” is a standout.

“Half way down your first country mile / You called your mama said it’s gunna be a while / didn’t think way out was your style / but now you know what it’s about / whatcha think of country now”

Wallen also explored sonically with the title-track “Dangerous,” 865,” and “Warning.” All super catchy, both “Dangerous” and “Warning” explore a more hip-hop edge, while “865,” arguably a top pick off the record focuses on unique and exciting phrasing. Vocally, “865” challenges Wallen in the best way, but sonically, the song soars with a killer instrumental and phrasing that we just cannot get enough of.

The hitmaker said it best in a recent press release, sharing, “I know 32 songs sounds like a lot to digest, but I truly did my best to make sure there’s not a song that I would press ‘next’ on. I also wanted the songs to speak to multiple phases of life and have multiple different sounds based on my influences and based on what I enjoy.” Both sonically and lyrically, Wallen nailed it with this incredible project that is sure going to take him to next level!

Country Songs That Embody 2020

The top country songs that embody 2020…

At last, 2020 is coming to an end. Despite how crazy this year has been, country music still prevailed, bringing us new songs, records, and even livestreams to enjoy. We thought it would be fun to take a look back at some of the songs that we think personified this year.
“F2020” – Avenue Beat
“Lowkey fuck 2020 / I don’t know about everybody else / But I think that I am kinda done / Can we just get to 2021” 
Obviously, we have to start our list off with this certified jam! The ladies killed it with this viral song, personifying exactly how we all felt midway through quarantine. Of course, regardless, it’s such a bop.
“7 Summers”- Morgan Wallen
“Back then you used to love the river / And sippin’ on a mixer with me / Does it ever make you sad to know / That was seven summers ago”
This nostalgic Morgan Wallen tune is quite possibly one of his best to date. Despite the fact that it’s about a past relationship, the song brings back memories of better days and even more innocent times. It is also super catchy and Wallen’s vocals shine on the track.
“Black Like Me”- Mickey Guyton
“It’s a hard life on easy street / Just white painted picket fences far as you can see / If you think we live in the land of the free / You should try to be black like me”
One of the most poignant country songs arguable ever, Mickey Guyton spoke her truth with this powerful song. Making the country music industry and the world pay attention to the societal issues in regards to racism and disenfranchisement, we are so happy that this song was brought to life by the incredible artist.
“I Should Probably Go to Bed” – Dan + Shay
“In a crowd of strangers and lovers / Someone told me that you were coming so / I should probably go to bed”
The irony of this song just cannot be beat. Although it was not about the pandemic, we cannot help but think that we “should probably go to bed,” when we are fatigued from the whole year. Also, the song is just plain great, so it had to make our list.
“We Were Rich”- Runaway June
“I never thought that grass was greener / On the other side of our old chain link fence / Yeah, we were rich”
Runaway June’s latest single, “We Were Rich” was one of our favorites off their last project. The song reminds us to be thankful for what we have, even when times are tough. It is the perfect reminder for us during these last few months and into 2021.
“Six Feet Apart”- Luke Combs
“But there’ll be crowds and there’ll be shows / And light after dark / Someday when we aren’t six feet apart”
Luke Combs was honestly the king of quarantine, giving fans so much new music. This particular song is lyrically-genius. He reminds us all that the world will not be like this forever, a reminder that we definitely all need.
“Be A Light”- Thomas Rhett + Friends
“In a world full of hate, be a light / When you do somebody wrong, make it right”
Finally, we leave you with this impactful song by Thomas Rhett featuring Reba McEntire, Hillary Scott, Chris Tomlin, and Keith Urban. This song is the encouragement we need in our world right now. Even in the darkest of times, there is always good in the world. If you cannot find any, be the light.

As we look forward to a better 2021, we want to thank each and every one of you who show us so much love throughout the year. We are looking forward to the new year and better days together!
