In 2018 Morgan Wallen made a name for himself by coming out with an album called “If I Know Me.” He caught the heart of many young girls who love country music. Since 2018 he has grown to become a massive country star. 


Most girls are in love with the famous country artist Morgan Wallen, who came out with a new album. The album was released on January 8, 2021. This isn’t like any other album he has come out with; this album is a double album. The album is twice the length of a regular album. 


The album is called “Dangerous: The Double Album.” The album has 30 songs, and the album is an hour and 37 minutes long. 


Over the summer, he released one of the songs from the album “7 Summers”. The song became a huge hit and went off the charts. 


A few months later, the whole album came out. For the first week, he had several songs in the top 20 and the top 60. 


In a nutshell, Morgan Wallen’s album is about love, heartbreak, bars, drinking, and all the fun country life. Mr. Wallen was born in 1993, making him 27 years old, and he was born in Tennessee. He is from a small town called Sneedville, with around a population of 1,400 people.  


The two most popular songs on “Dangerous: The Double Album” are “More Than  My Hometown” and “7 Summers.” 


A Freshman Isabela Chavez (9) said, “I loved the album and my favorite song is “7 Summers” or “More Than My Hometown.” 


Personal favorites are “Somebody’s Problem,” “Neon Eyes,” “Cover Me Up,” and “Livin The Dream.”


The album is a mix of old-school country and country-pop from the 21st century. The album jumps back and forth between old school and pop country, but the album is also a mix of slow songs and songs you can get up and dance to. “Dangerous: The Double Album” has something for everyone to like and jam out to. 


One of his songs, “Sand In My Boots,” shows how good he is at writing songs and how detailed he can be to create an image in the listener’s head. A lyric from the song that shows how detailed he is, “ Little town outside of Knoxville, headin’ by some dogwood trees, she tried talkin’ with my accent.”


Morgan Wallen produced an amazing album that most people loved and it was a huge hit. His career continues to grow and he will become a bigger country artist over the years if he continues producing music.
