After 38 weeks at country radio, Morgan Wallen’s single, “Whiskey Glasses,” is wobbling up the charts. The tune, which was penned by Ben Burgess and Kevin Kadish, is currently No. 3 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart.
“Lyrically, ‘Whiskey Glasses’ is a heartbreak song, but I didn’t want it to feel like that so we tried to get clever in the studio,” says Morgan to NCD. “I didn’t want it to feel sad, so I told [producer Joey Moi] that I wanted to make the song kind of feel more drunk as it went along. We kept adding little things here and there to make it almost wobble.”
Whatever Joey and Morgan did in the studio is working. “Whiskey Glasses” is mirroring the ascent of Morgan’s previous No. 1 single, “Up Down,” which topped the charts in June 2018 after 32 weeks.
“I’m just glad people are liking it,” adds Morgan.
Morgan is currently nominated for CMT’s Breakthrough Video of the Year for “Whiskey Glasses.” He will join Florida Georgia Line’s Can’t Say I Ain’t Country Tour in June.
