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.
