Big Loud Records newcomer Morgan Wallen is taking Country music by storm with the music video for his latest single “Up Down,” featuring BMLG Records superstar duo Florida Georgia Line.
Critics and fans alike are loving the “infectious” (Rare Country) track – which officially hits Country Radio airwaves November 27 – and accompanying the beachside video. Not only did the vertical version of the clip launch Spotify’s Hot Country Vertical Video feature, but also the wide-angle version has already notched nearly 1 million views since it debuted Friday (10/20) and is the #3 most-downloaded Country video on iTunes.

“I connected with this song the first time I heard it and was honored when BK and Tyler asked to get in on it,” says Wallen. “Now that it’s out and people are loving it as much as I do, I’m so pumped to perform it every night on the road with my buddy Chris Lane.”
Taste of Country lauds “His debut single ‘The Way I Talk’ was a smartly-written introduction, but it’s this song that fans will be running to download quickly,” while Rolling Stone Country observes “the notion is one of modern country’s favorites: work hard, play hard, be proud of who you are.”Fresh from his opening slot on FGL’s just-wrapped The Smooth Tour 2017, Wallen will hit the road as support on labelmate Lane’s Take Back Home Tour, which kicked off Wednesday (10/25) in Baltimore, MD. His energetic opening night performance had Morning Hangover declaring, “…‘Up Down’ is going to be HUGE.”
Also an adept songwriter, Wallen is celebrating recent cuts by Jason Aldean and Kane Brown, as well as Dustin Lynch’s “Party Song” and A Thousand Horses’ “Preachin’ To The Choir.”
