Country music riser Morgan Wallen is bringing his chart-topping tunes to this year’s 16th Annual WWE Tribute to the Troops, airing this Thursday, December 20 at 9/8c on USA Network. The two-hour special broadcast from Fort Hood, Texas will also feature special guest Jon Stewart.
Wallen has had a record year. With two #1 hits in 2018 – PLATINUM-certified summer smash “Up Down” featuring Florida Georgia Line, and Jason Aldean’s chart-topper “You Make It Easy” as a songwriter—and the release of his debut album IF I KNOW ME, “a buzz-worthy collection full of catchy, quality songs” (MusicRow), Wallen is rolling into 2019 with anticipation high and accolades piling up.
Earlier this month, Wallen was named a 2019 MusicRow Next Big Thing artist, adding to his list of achievements as a Taste of Country RISER, a member of SiriusXM’s Class of 2018 and one of CMT’s Listen Up “18 for 2018” artists. After opening for superstars Jake Owen and Luke Bryan and embarking on his first-ever headline tour in 2018, Wallen will kick off his 2019 IF I KNOW ME Tour presented by Shiner Light Blonde on January 4 in Rosemont, IL.
