“Up Down” singer Morgan Wallen made his debut on the Today show on Thursday, performing his Top 25 single “Whiskey Glasses.” The song appears on Wallen’s 2018 album If I Know Me.

Penned by Ben Burgess and Kevin Kadish, “Whiskey Glasses” is the Knoxville, Tennessee, native’s third single release, following 2016’s introductory “The Way I Talk” and the chart-topping Florida Georgia Line collaboration “Up Down.” Both tracks wound up on Wallen’s full-length debut If I Know Me, which highlighted his distinctive voice and showed him to be a savvy interpreter of country-rock styles from different eras.

“Pour me, pour me another drink,” sings Wallen right at the top of “Whiskey Glasses,” numbing the pain of a recent breakup in classic country-song fashion by knocking back a few instead of facing up to the truth. On Today, Wallen shows off his signature gritty vocals, breaking free from his mic stand in the mid-song breakdown to get up-close with one of the set cameras.

Currently headlining his own If I Know Me Tour, which has a sold-out show at Boston’s Paradise Rock Club on Friday, February 22nd, Wallen is due to join up with Florida Georgia Line and Dan + Shay for the Can’t Say I Ain’t Country Tour later this year. That trek boots up June 13th in Rogers, Arkansas, with newcomer Hardy and Canaan Smith opening on select dates.
