“Thank you, country radio, my incredible fans and my relentless team for making this our fourth consecutive number one. Also, thank you to my co-writers for collaborating with me on this song and for just being some damn good friends. Happy Thanksgiving, everybody.”
On Friday, November 20th, 2020, Morgan released three songs from his 30-song sophomore LP, Dangerous: The Double Album.
“The double album idea started off as just a joke between me and my manager because we had accumulated so many songs over the past couple of years. Then quarantine hit, and we realized it might actually be possible to have enough time to make it happen.”
Like all of us, Morgan has had his share of hits and misses in 2020.
Morgan was recently named the 2020 CMA Awards New Artist of the Year.

In 2020, Morgan was arrested on drunk and disorderly charges in Nashville.
He also revealed that he became a father, and he lost his debut performance slot on SNL after a weekend of partying that went against the late-night show’s strict COVID-19 physical distancing protocols.
The good news, Morgan has been rescheduled for SNL on December 5th.
