While climbing the Country radio charts with Top 15 hit “Whiskey Glasses,” Big Loud Records artist MORGAN WALLEN reveals a new side to fans with his just-released cover of Jason Isbell’s “Cover Me Up,” available across all streaming platforms.
Since debuting the cover in his 2018 Taste of Country RISERS sessions, his take on the powerful love song was met with immediate praise; tallying more than 2.5 MILLION views on YouTube and fans asking for an official recording of the track.
Media acclaim followed quickly, with Taste of Country raving that “they don’t give CMA or ACM Awards out for Cover Song of the Year, but Morgan Wallen’s version of Jason Isbell’s ‘Cover Me Up’ might inspire a new category,” and that the cover is “a slow, vulnerable ballad that reveals a side of Wallen few have seen live. With just a few strums and the first verse you’ll find new depth from a man best-known for ‘Up Down’.”
Up next for the Tennessee native is a nationwide stint on Florida Georgia Line’s CAN’T SAY I AIN’T COUNTRY TOUR this summer, followed by a three-month run this fall as direct support on Luke Combs’ BEER NEVER BROKE MY HEART TOUR.
