NASHVILLE, TENN. (February 19, 2019) — Breakout Country hitmaker and Big Loud Records talent MORGAN WALLEN is set to make his debut on NBC News’ TODAY Thursday (February 21), lining up a performance of his smooth burning single “Whiskey Glasses” for the high-profile national broadcast.
Currently inside the Top 25 and rising at Country radio, the buzz-inducing hit has been going down easy with fans and critics alike, with Whiskey Riff praising the second single from Wallen’s IF I KNOW ME album as “catchy, clever and if you’ve ever had to drink away a broken heart, you know exactly where he’s coming from.”
A searing slow pour of heavy-grooving heartache, it’s become a staple of Wallen’s electrifying live shows, which are constantly building in both energy and attendance. Making his case as a burgeoning star, Wallen has been impressing crowds nationwide with his headlining IF I KNOW ME TOUR – recording an incredible 21 pre-show sellouts to date and rocking amped up fans wherever he goes.
MusicRow has described his concerts as a “sea of flannel shirts and cowboy boots” which continually “chanted Wallen’s name,” remarking on jam-packed venues and a stage presence which “had the crowd with their hands up and singing every word.” Likewise, Taste of Country calls Wallen a superstar in the making, praising him as “a steadfast, lively performer, [who] will find himself reaching the most ambitious heights he sets his sights on.”
Next up for Wallen are three more SOLD-OUT shows in New York, NY (2/21), Boston, MA (2/22), and Asbury Park, NJ (2/23). Then after wrapping the IF I KNOW ME TOUR March 30 in Salt Lake City, UT, Wallen will bring his high-energy live show to stadiums across the U.S. with FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE for their summer 2019 CAN’T SAY I AIN’T COUNTRY TOUR.
