Morgan Wallen is reflecting on his debut album, If I Know Me, on the fourth anniversary of the project.
If I Know Me was released on April 27, 2018, and the chart-topping singer/songwriter took to social media with a special message to mark the occasion.
“I can’t believe the If I Know Me Album was released 4 years ago today,” Wallen shared on Instagram stories. “Little flashback to the short, spikey haired kid lol. Thank you for loving it as much as I do. Y’all are the best.”
The 14-track project features Wallen’s four singles, including his debut single “The Way I Talk,” and the chart-topping hits,”Chasin’ You,” ”Up Down (feat. Florida Georgia Line)” and “Whiskey Glasses.”
“There’s a little bit of everything involved in my album,” Wallen shared upon releasing the album. “It’s pretty diverse. There’s a couple of songs on there that have honky-tonk leaning sounds. There’s a couple of songs that do lean more pop. And there’s just a couple of straight-up country jammers on there.”
“I like to think there’s a little bit of everything for everybody because that’s the way I am as well,” he added. “I like every kind of music, so I kind of wanted to incorporate it all.”
The album, which first went Platinum in September 2020, was certified 2X Multi-Platinum by the RIAA in January of 2022, signifying 2 million copies sold.
If I Know Me was produced by Joey Moi and released via Big Loud Records. The project peaked at No. 1 on both the Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart and Billboard’s Independent Albums chart as well as No. 10 on the Billboard 200.
According to MusicRow, Wallen’s If I Know Me returned to Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart in late April, adding 17k consumption.

Wallen, who is in the midst of his wildly successful The Dangerous Tour, followed up the project with his sophomore release, Dangerous: The Double Album. Dangerous features Wallen’s latest chart-toppers “More Than My Hometown” and “Sand In My Boots,” as well as “7 Summers” and his current chart-climbing hit, “Wasted On You.”
Since releasing Dangerous: The Double Album, Wallen has shared “Don’t Think Jesus,” a deeply personal track written by Chase McGill, Jessi Alexander and Mark Holman with Wallen in mind. The emotion-filled song tells the story of a boy chasing whiskey and women while living life in the fast lane until he just couldn’t anymore.
He also appeared on Lil Durk’s “Broadway Girls” and Ernest’s “Flower Shops.”
