Morgan Wallen’s Whiskey Glasses

This week’s co-host is Morgan Wallen, who had a #1 last year with “Up Down,” and also co-wrote Jason Aldean’s #1 “You Make It Easy.” Now he’s back in our Top 5 with “Whiskey Glasses.”

Morgan told Lon why he thinks his song is resonating with the fans: “It’s a heartbreak song that doesn’t feel like a heartbreak song, which is something I appreciate. We decided to make the song sound more drunk as it goes along.”

Lon asked if they replaced the whiskey with iced tea during the making of the video: “There’s a little of both! If I’d taken that many whiskey shots I wouldn’t have made it through the whole video.”

In March Morgan did his first tour of Australia. He told Lon, “I didn’t have a clue what to expect, I’d never been anywhere except Canada. By the time I left, I felt I’d made a lot of fans. I know they’ve got a bunch of rednecks over there. Me & Tyler of FGL took a helicopter over the Great Barrier Reef. It was beautiful, one of the craziest things I’ve ever seen.”

Over the past year, some of our co-hosts have talked about Morgan’s mullet. Morgan explained it this way: “I got it because my dad had one, and I decided I wanted to look similar. I’ve noticed that at every show, that at least 4 or 5 dudes will show up with a mullet and cut-off flannel shirt.”

Morgan is about to hit the road with Florida Georgia Line. Lon asked him to describe his relationship with each of those guys: “I think me & Tyler give each other more stuff. We’re more similar. BK is more hippie, and I’m not. So me & Tyler like to mess with each other. BK has vision. He sees things, and I appreciate his mind, and I try to learn from him. They are like my family.”

Morgan toured last summer with Luke Bryan. One day he got pranked by Luke and Peyton Manning: “I was at home, and Luke called me, saying he was going to hook me up with Peyton. He asked me for my text address. I sent it to him, and he texted me back and said, ‘Man I just got hacked. Somebody got into my phone and stole a bunch of things.’ He made it sound like the hackers had my address. While I was getting worried, Luke Facetimed me and he’s sitting there with Peyton laughing at me. It was pretty surreal. Right after that Peyton sent me a signed #16 jersey. That’s pretty crazy.”

Morgan also has great stories this week about Thomas Rhett, Jon Pardi, Chris Lane, Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean, and Florida Georgia Line.
