After 40 weeks at country radio, Morgan Wallen’s single, “Whiskey Glasses,” has topped both the Billboard Country Airplay chart and Mediabase chart.
Penned by Ben Burgess and Kevin Kadish, “Whiskey Glasses” mirrored the ascent of Morgan’s previous No. 1 single, “Up Down,” which topped the charts in June 2018 after 32 weeks.
“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.”
Morgan will join Florida Georgia Line’s Can’t Say I Ain’t Country Tour in June.
“I’m just glad people are liking it,” adds Morgan.
