Wallen’s turkey hunt adventure took place on the same day as the 64th Annual GRAMMY Awards. Despite having the best-selling album across all genres in 2021 with his record-breaking project, Dangerous: The Double Album, Wallen was excluded from the list of nominees for the GRAMMYs.
His fans were outraged when the GRAMMY nominees were announced and took to social media to share their disappointment over the snub.
Dangerous was recently named Country Album of The Year at the 2022 iHeartRadio Awards and also took home the title of Album of the Year at the Academy of Country Music Awards in March.
Wallen is currently in the midst of his massive The Dangerous Tour in support of the project. The tour, which is the biggest country tour of 2022 and runs through October, recently sold-out with over 800,000 tickets sold, according to Up2DateCountry.
In addition to HARDY and Larry Fleet, the country hitmaker recently added Lainey Wilson, Kameron Marlowe, Chase Rice, Ian Munsick, and ERNEST to his sold-out tour lineup.
The singer recently announced his first-ever Stadium show in Arlington, Texas, at Globe Life Field on October 8, 2022, with special guests HARDY, Mike Ryan and Jake Worthington.
