Artist on the rise Morgan Wallen will check another first off his list this week as he is set to make his Grand Ole Opry debut on Friday, July 7. Wallen will step into the iconic circle to highlight his new music, and showcase debut single, “The Way I Talk.”

“So many legends, heroes, and pioneers of Country music have paved the way for guys like me to make my debut,” shares Wallen. “To even be recognized in the same sentence as artists from Hank Williams to Roy Acuff and Alan Jackson to Garth Brooks – plus so many more, is a huge honor for me. I never would have imagined this in my wildest dreams growing up. Hopefully this is my first of many trips to the Opry stage!”

“The Way I Talk” is at country radio and available on digital music outlets, such as iTunes here. Wallen will continue to leave his mark on country music all summer long with a full schedule of performances, including opening up for Florida Georgia Line on The Smooth Tour 2017.
