MORGAN WALLEN RELEASES STRIPPED-DOWN VERSION OF “865” FOR THE DANGEROUS SESSIONS
DANGEROUS: THE DOUBLE ALBUM NOMINATED FOR CMA ALBUM OF THE YEAR
UPCOMING TOUR STOPS INCLUDE AUBURN RODEO AND COUNTRY THUNDER BRISTOL
NASHVILLE, TENN. (October 19, 2021) – MULTI-PLATINUM Country artist Morgan Wallen tributes the memory we can’t drink away in a brand-new performance video, releasing “865” as the latest installment of The Dangerous Sessions today (10/19). The video drop marks the first of six soon-to-be released videos continuing Wallen’s original acclaimed series.
Directed by Justin Clough and filmed in his hometown of Knoxville, Tennessee, the clip finds Wallen putting a nostalgic sweetness on his celebrated sandpaper vocal and stripping down “865” to capture the emptiness of a broken heart.
Written by John Byron and Blake Pendergrass, the vivid track is part of Wallen’s record-smashing Dangerous: The Double Album, and now joins others such as “Sand In My Boots,” “Wasted on You” and more from his ongoing The Dangerous Sessions performance series.
Meanwhile, Dangerous: The Double Album is nominated for Album of the Year at the upcoming 55th Annual CMA Awards
CRITICAL PRAISE FOR DANGEROUS:
“the country set to beat in 2021” – Billboard
“the hottest act in country music at the moment” – Entertainment Tonight
“Wallen is that rare country artist with the range to pull off arena rock, easy-vibes Americana, and traditional country ballads.” – GQ
“What makes Wallen’s writing so magnetic is the easy, idiomatic shorthand that plunges you directly into his world.” – Pitchfork
“the most wanted man in Country” – The New Yorker
Next up, Wallen will hit the road to perform for FOUR sold-out crowds including Auburn Rodeo on October 23 and then will light up Country Thunder Bristol on October 30 with Granger Smith (feat. Earl Dibbles Jr.)
