NASHVILLE, Tenn. (October 13, 2017) – Country’s new kid on the block MORGAN WALLEN will have hands waving and heads bobbing “Up Down” as he unleashes his latest single, featuring BMLG Records’ Florida Georgia Line, today (10/13) at all digital retailers

Tennessee native’s fun-loving personality is the star of the laid-back
track, a tribute to downhome living – and partying – with the
multi-PLATINUM duo’s Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard exchanging verses
with the up-and-comer and rounding out the sing-along chorus. 

Using the beach-combing accompanying music video to launch its new Hot Country Vertical Video feature, Spotify premiered the vertical version of the sun-drenched clip today (10/13). Meanwhile gave readers an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the Orange Beach, AL shoot. The video’s full wide-angle version is slated to drop October 20. 

“Five years ago, I never would have thought that I would have them on my song,” Wallen told “It’s really kind of crazy how it all unfolded, and I can’t wait to get it out for the rest of the world to see.”

by Brad Clawson, Michael Hardy, and CJ Solar, “Up Down” will hit
Country Radio airwaves November 27 and is a taste of Wallen’s upcoming
debut album, expected early next year on Big Loud Records. Always true
to himself, the kerosene-soaked anthem is a fitting follow-up to his
biographical Top 30 debut single “The Way I Talk,” which achieved max
spins on Sirius XM’s The Highway.

rambunctious newcomer has also made a name for himself as an in-demand
songwriter with recent cuts by Jason Aldean, Kane Brown, Dustin Lynch,
and A Thousand Horses.  

Recognized as one of Rolling Stone’s
“10 New Country Artists you Need to Know Now,” the magnetic performer
will continue to enthrall sell-out crowds opening for FGL’s THE SMOOTH
TOUR 2017 before hitting the road with label mate and breakout star
Chris Lane for Lane’s TAKE BACK HOME TOUR throughout the fall. He’ll
wrap the year as support for Granger Smith’s DON’T TREAD ON ME TOUR. 

About Morgan Wallen:

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 (2016)
features debut single “The Way I Talk,” that made its mark on Spotify’s
popular Wild Country, New Boots and New Music Friday playlists.
