Morgan Wallen Spray Paints His Success On Music Row
Morgan Wallen’s “You Proof” has become the first 10-week number one in Billboard’s Country Airplay Chart history. Morgan himself took some spray paint to fix a banner on Nashville’s Music Row yesterday (1/11) to mark the occasion.
Wallen shared a clip of himself fixing a banner on Music Row congratulating him on his latest achievement. On his Insta stories, he wrote, “‘You Proof’ is the only song ever to spend ten weeks at the top of the Country Airplay chart. Thank you to my fans, an incredible radio team, and country radio for the support. Love ya’ll.” He added, “Decided to rearrange the banner instead of buying a new one on the next story. lol.”
In the following story, Morgan stands on a ladder with spray paint to fix the six weeks to ten by crossing out the six with red paint and adding a ten. He wrote over the clip, “Let’s see how good my Graffiti skills are.” As some label people laughed, he crosses out the six many times and then switches to yellow paint to do so. He writes” “That look good?” Then he takes some orange spray paint to go over the ten again and adds an orange T for Tennessee Vols on his shirt on the banner image. He steps back, and they all giggle with joy.
It is a tradition that has been going on for decades in Nashville to hang banners with artists’ and songwriters’ success down 16th Avenue, where most of the record label and music business offices reside.
Last month, Morgan announced his 2023 tour, called the “One Night At A Time World Tour.” Ernest and Bailey Zimmerman will open for Wallen, with Hardy and Parker McCollum opening select shows. The tour will include several festivals as well as dates in stadiums, arenas, and amphitheaters. This month (January) marks two years since he released Dangerous: The Double Album.
