Morgan Wallen opening acts
At each show, Wallen will be joined by fellow country stars to round out the bill. Here’s the skinny on each artist accompanying him on the “One Night at a Time World Tour.”
Parker McCollum, 30, is a headliner in his own right. Active since 2013, McCollum won the New Male Artist of the Year at the American Country Music Awards in 2022. He’s known for smash singles “Pretty Heart” and “Hell of a Year.”
Hardy aka Michael Wilson Hardy has written music for stars Florida Georgia Line, Thomas Rhett and Wallen of course. However, let’s not forget he’s a prolific singer-songwriter himself. Start with “One Beer” and “Give Heaven Some Hell” if you want a good starting point for his catalogue.
Ernest is “Nashville’s most unpredictable hitmaker” according to his website. Inspired by artists as varied as Eminem and George Jones, Ernest recently headlined the Sucker For Small Towns Tour and sold out college towns nationwide. Check out his new record “Flower Shops” which includes lead single “Flower Shops” featuring Morgan Wallen.
Bailey Zimmerman doesn’t just do country. His website claims his music “strikes a sweet spot between timeless American country, rafter-rattling arena rock, and authentic storytelling.” His single “Rock and a Hard Place” has racked up nearly 100 million streams on Spotify since it was released earlier this year.
Morgan Wallen new music
While Wallen hasn’t officially released a full record since 2021’s massive 33-song “Dangerous: The Double Album,” he’s stayed quite busy in the year since it dropped.
In addition to a number of singles he’s put online, he just dropped three new tracks “One Thing At A Time,” “Tennessee Fan” and “Days That End In Why” as promised in his Instagram post announcing his tour.
You can hear snippets of all three singles below.
Morgan Wallen controversy
While Wallen is a bona fide star, his ascent to the top hasn’t come without a few hiccups.
In fact, his Wikipedia has a whole section dubbed “Controversies.”
Just a few of his most notable scandals include an arrest for public intoxication and disorderly conduct (May 2020), partying maskless in a bar at the height of the pandemic (October 2020) and using racial slurs on camera (February 2021).
Following his racist incident, Wallen donated $300,000 to the Black Music Action Coalition and has been banned from a number of award shows.
