In the midst of the country superstar’s headlining set in East Tennessee, Bryan welcomed his tourmate Riley Green back to the stage to sing a medley of cover songs as Bryan does on every date of his Raised Up Right Tour with the support act.
During the series of cover songs, Bryan decided to honor Morgan Wallen in Wallen’s hometown by covering his chart-topping hit “Whiskey Glasses” with Green.
After Bryan and Green performed most of the tune together, Bryan decided to prank the crowd and pretended to welcome Wallen to the stage. “Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the stage Morgan Wallen,” Bryan joked as the crowd erupted into a roaring applause only to find out that the “You Proof” singer wasn’t actually there.
“Morgan is not here!” Bryan revealed to the audience. Green then questioned Bryan’s decision to pull a Morgan Wallen prank on a crowd in East Tennessee, where Wallen was born and raised.
“Why would you do that to yourself?” Green asked Bryan, who was standing beside him on stage laughing. Green later joined in on the prank and told the crowd, “I know Morgan Wallen’s not here, but I know who is here Blake Shelton everybody.”
“Alright ladies, I’m pretty sure 30% of the crowd just pissed in their pants,” Bryan said laughing hysterically.
Riley Green kept the joke going by shouting, “I’ll tell you what, Jason Aldean everybody.” However, the crowd did not even blink an eye over that one as they just knew it was just a continuation of the prank Bryan started.
Luke Bryan Recently Released His New Single “Country On”
Luke Bryan recently released his latest single “Country On,” which was the most-added song at country radio upon its release. According to Country Aircheck, 91 country radio stations added the song to rotation on its official impact date.
Co-written by Mark Nesler, David Frasier, Mitch Oglesby, and Styles Haury, and co-produced by Jeff Stevens and Jody Stevens, the song shouts out farmworkers, truckers, first responders, soldiers and more and encourages those perseverant individuals to “Country On,” or in other words, keep going.
“Hey fireman, boys and girls in blue/ We could sure use a lot more like you/ You come runnin’ in anytime, anything goes wrong/ Country on/ Hey soldier, wherever you might bе / Hats off to keepin’ us free/ All our thoughts and prayers ’til you get back home/ Country on,” he sings while Sarah Buxton provides background vocals.
