“Well first of all, thank you guys so much for being here,” Wallen shared during the show. “Most of you probably know that I’m a Tennessee boy. I was born and raised in Tennessee and I’m proud of it. The people here mean so much to me and I was watching the news and reading some articles and I read some stories that really touched my heart and made me feel like it could’ve been my hometown. I wanted to do something about it… Just seeing people hurtin’ man, nobody likes to see that and we’re going to try to do something about it tonight.”
Wallen is officially back at country radio with his latest single, “Sand In My Boots.”
The song is feature don his sophomore project, Dangerous: The Double Album.
