Morgan Wallen surprised fans during his sold-out concert in Allentown with a special performance alongside his longtime friend, Jimmie Allen.
In the midst of the East Tennessee native’s electrifying 23-song set, Wallen shocked the Pennsylvania crowd when he welcomed Allen, wearing a Philadelphia Eagles ensemble, to the stage to perform “The Way I Talk.”
“It sounds a little bit like my daddy / I don’t cuss around my mama / Got some words you’ve never heard / ‘Less you come from down yonder / The man upstairs gets it / So I ain’t tryna fix it / No, I can’t hide it / I don’t fight it, I just roll with it / Oh, kinda slow like the Mississippi rolls / It’s the only way I know / Man, it ain’t my fault / I just live the way I talk,” Wallen sang before welcoming Allen to the stage to sing the track’s next verse.
“Yeah it’s, Yes sir, no ma’am, y’all come back, now / Fighting words if you run my last name down / I ain’t ashamed, matter of fact, I’m damn proud / Of the way I talk, y’all,” Allen sang, before he and Wallen harmonized on the second chorus.
Allen then entered the stage to a capacity crowd, who roared in excitement upon seeing the “Freedom Was A Highway” singer.
“Y’all make some noise for Mr. Jimmie Allen in the house tonight!” Wallen shouted before he and Allen finished out the song together as the crowd sang the lyrics at the top of their lungs.

Allen previously joined Wallen on stage to sing “The Way I Talk” in March 2022 during the first of Wallen’s three sold-out shows in Nashville, which you can watch below.
