Morgan Wallen (Big Loud)
3/14/17

WHAT IT IS: Very rarely does an artist come along with a tone or take that shakes a format to its core. For Country, that is Morgan Wallen. His first single, “The Way I Talk,” which is climbing up the charts, is a true definition of who he is and where he’s from. It’s already garnered more than 5m Spotify streams, widespread heavy airplay, max spins on Sirius XM’s The Highway and critical acclaim. Since moving to Music City in 2015, he’s also been welcomed into the prestigious Nashville writing community with hitmakers including Craig Wiseman, Rodney Clawson, Chris Tompkins, the Warren Brothers, Matt Dragstrem and more. He crafted his The Way I Talk EP with award-winning producer Joey Moi.
