CHOICE PICK MORGAN WALLEN TO MAKE
GRAND OLE OPRY DEBUT JULY 7
Chart-Rising Single “The Way I Talk” Combines Down-Home Roots With New-School Swagger
Currently Electrifying Huge Crowds On Florida Georgia Line’s
THE SMOOTH TOUR 2017

Nashville, Tenn. (July 3, 2017) – Big Loud Records breakout talent Morgan Wallen takes another step along his path to Country stardom this week, making his Grand Ole Opry debut on Friday, July 7.
Taking
the historic, world-famous stage for the first time, Wallen will join
the ranks of legendary Opry performers like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash,
and Garth Brooks, as he introduces fans from around the globe to his
down-home meets new-school Country style.
Wallen’s
drawling, take-me-as-I-come debut single “The Way I Talk” has already
struck a chord with fans at Country radio, rising into the Top 35 of the
airplay charts.
“So
many legends, heroes, and pioneers of Country music have paved the way
for guys like me to make my debut,” shares Wallen. “To even be
recognized in the same sentence as artists from Hank Williams to Roy
Acuff and Alan Jackson to Garth Brooks
plus
so many more, is a huge honor for me. I never would have imagined this
in my wildest dreams growing up. Hopefully this is my first of many
trips to the Opry stage!”
Written
by Jessi Alexander, Ben Hayslip, and Chase McGill, “The Way I Talk” is
the first tease and title track of Wallen’s blistering debut EP
(produced by Florida Georgia Line studio ace Joey Moi), and has already
been streamed over 10 million times on Spotify alone.
Showing
off the Knoxville native’s dynamic vocals and a sound straight out of
the modern South, the song’s free-and-easy video premiered on CMT, as Wallen was named one of Rolling Stone’s “10 New Artists You Need to Know” and Taste of Country’s
2017 Risers. He has since passed another career milestone, earning a
writer’s credit on the rocking new single from A Thousand Horses,
“Preachin’ To the Choir.”
Wallen
is currently making an impact on the road, opening up shows to massive
crowds on select dates of FGL’s genre-busting THE SMOOTH TOUR 2017
alongside Hip-Hop icon Nelly and breakthrough Country star (and
labelmate) Chris Lane. His jam-packed concert schedule continues through
late October.
About Morgan Wallen:
Born in Sneedville, Tenn. (also home to bluegrass legend Jimmy Martin),
Wallen was a star on the baseball diamond, attended the same high school
as Country superstar Kenny Chesney, and has deep roots in the church.
With a Hard Rock-loving preacher for a father and a mother who couldn’t
get enough Country and contemporary Christian music, Wallen began
performing for his local congregation at the tender age of 3 and went on
to develop a strong love of Country, Rock and Hip-Hop. After moving to
Music City in 2015, he’s co-written with hitmakers like Craig Wiseman,
Rodney Clawson, Chris Tompkins, the Warren Brothers, Tommy Cecil and
Matt Dragstrem, and has been honing his studio poise with award-winning
producer Joey Moi. Wallen’s five-song EP THE WAY I TALK hit
iTunes and Spotify on July 29, 2016, and his Southern-roots anthem “The
Way I Talk” was instantly included on Spotify’s popular Wild Country,
New Boots and New Music Friday playlists.
