Morgan Wallen Discusses His Three-Week No. 1 Hit, Staying Authentic, And The Return Of The Mullet [Interview]
A few weeks ago, Big Loud Records artist Morgan Wallen celebrated his biggest hit yet with “Whiskey Glasses,” which spent three weeks at No. 1 on the country charts. The track follows Wallen’s first chart-topper, “Up Down,” which featured Florida Georgia Line and went to No. 1 on both the Billboard Country Airplay chart and Mediabase/Country Aircheck chart.
“It’s one of the earlier songs I heard that were being pitched to me,” Wallen tells MusicRow of “Whiskey Glasses,” which was penned by Ben Burgess and “All About That Bass” writer Kevin Kadish. “As soon as I heard it, I thought it was unique and all the clever, double entendres. Also, just the feel and phrasing I thought was unique. The only thing we added in production was between the chorus and the ‘Whiskey Glasses’ line at the end, just a couple of little phrases to fill in the space there.”
