Morgan Wallen surprised fans in Nashville on Friday (July 30) with an appearance at Luke Bryan’s sold-out, headlining show at Bridgestone Arena.

Wallen was welcomed to the stage following special guest appearances by Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard and Jason Aldean.

“So a really good friend of ours is here backstage,”Aldean teased. 

“It’s Nashville bro,” Hubbard exclaimed.

Do I need another tequila shot to get through this?” Bryan asked.

Seconds later, Wallen entered the stage to a thunderous applause as fans showcase their excitement at the sight of the country superstar.

As Wallen took the stage, Hubbard, Aldean and Bryan embraced him with open arms as Aldean proclaimed, “Only in Nashville.” 

The artists joined together for a toast before Wallen took centerstage on the catwalk. 

“Hello Nashville, how y’all doin’ tonight,” Wallen asked. 

After admitting he wasn’t sure what song to play, the Tennessee native said, “This song about staying true to yourself, that’s been a really hard thing for me to do lately, but, here I am.”

As he belted out the lyrics to his chart-topping hit, “More Than My Hometown,” fans erupted in cheers with a full-on sing along.

Taking a moment to soak up the moment, Wallen put his hand over his heart as he looked out upon the sea of fans. 

He then performed his breakout hit, “Whiskey Glasses,” as Hubbard, Aldean and Bryan watched on seated on coolers on the catwalk. 

Fans inside the arena continued to cheer loudly as the four artists joined forces to perform a collaborative rendition of Aldean’s smash hit, “She’s Country.” 

Wallen was originally slated to appear as direct support on Bryan’s Proud To Be Right Here Right Here Tour, however he removed himself from the tour after a controversial video of him using a racial slur surfaced online. 

His appearance comes just one week after his buzzed-about Good Morning America interview.
