Morgan Wallen (born May 13, 1993) is an American country music artist. He is signed to Big Loud Records and has released three singles: "The Way I Talk", "Up Down", which features Florida Georgia Line, and his current single "Whiskey Glasses".

History[edit]

Wallen was born in Sneedville, Tennessee.[1] His father was a preacher, and as a child, Wallen took piano and violin lessons. He played baseball in college, but after an injury, chose to pursue music instead. In 2014, he competed on season 6 of The Voice, but was eliminated.[1]

In late 2016, Wallen signed to Big Loud Records, a label owned by record producer Joey Moi. He released his debut single "The Way I Talk" soon afterward.[2] In addition, he co-wrote the A Thousand Horses single "Preachin' to the Choir".[1] In April 2017, Wallen released a music video for "The Way I Talk".[3] He also joined Florida Georgia Line for set dates on their Dig Your Roots Tour.[1]

On April 27, 2018, Wallen released his debut album, If I Know Me.[4] The single from the album, "Up Down", was recorded with Florida Georgia Line.[5] According to Wallen, he and Florida Georgia Line got together as they knew each other, and when FGL heard the single, they became interested in a collaboration.[6] The album's third single "Whiskey Glasses" released to country radio on July 30, 2018. Wallen also made a short appearance on the 3rd December 2018 episode of WWE Raw.[7]
