Morgan Wallen Picks Up Some Heavy Metal
Morgan Wallen wrapped up the end of the Can't Say I Ain't Country Tour with headliner Florida Georgia Line over the weekend with some serious hardware. He was surprised backstage at the Irvine, CA date with four record plaques commemorating his newly-certified gold debut single “The Way I Talk,” platinum Number One hit “Up Down” featuring FGL, platinum multi-week chart-topper “Whiskey Glasses,” and gold debut album If I Know Me, which features all three singles.
Morgan said, “I remember getting my first plaque for 'Up Down' — that meant so much to me. I started to see the difference at my shows after that in the way people were reacting, the same way I saw it happening when my fans latched on to 'Whiskey Glasses' this year. Now seeing the same correlation — having a gold album and watching fans at shows singing along all night and buying in to my music — it is indescribable. Thank you to my team, to Country radio and to the fans that helped make this happen for me."
This weekend, Morgan joins Luke Combs as direct support on the sold-out Beer Never Broke My Heart Tour beginning in Cape Girardeau, MO on Thursday (October 3rd).
