TUNE IN: DEBUTS NEW COLLECTION LIVE FROM THE RYMAN TONIGHT (1/12)
NASHVILLE, TENN. (January 12, 2021) — Big Loud/Republic Records’ Morgan Wallen is making history with his critically acclaimed sophomore effort, Dangerous: The Double Album, after launching this past Friday (1/8).
At Apple Music, “country’s new superstar” (Los Angeles Times) broke through with unprecedented force. In just two days, Dangerous has set the record for the biggest first day and biggest first week Country album of all-time on the platform. After becoming the most pre-added Country album in Apple Music history, the double take currently sits at #1 on their Overall Albums charts in the US, Canada and Australia, while simultaneously staking its claim as the #1 Top Country Album in 62 countries worldwide.
Meanwhile at Amazon Music, Wallen continued his hot streak, breaking their global first day streaming record for a Country album debut. Keeping with the trend, Dangerous is now Spotify’s biggest all-time first day stream record for a Country album as Wallen reigns #1 globally and in the US on Spotify’s Top Debut’s charts.
Praise for the expansive 30-track collection is flooding in, with Stereogum declaring, “Morgan Wallen is primed to become Country’s biggest crossover star in years” and Billboard calling the double album “a sprawling coronation at the beginning of 2021.”
Tonight, Wallen will take the stage for his first-ever headline show at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium for Live At The Ryman – a full band, livestream concert. Wallen will play selections from the all-new double album, inviting fans worldwide to celebrate Dangerous on his Facebook and YouTube pages.
