Sunday, March 3, 2024, marked the one-year anniversary of the release of Morgan Wallen’s One Thing At A Time album. To commemorate this milestone, he surprised fans by dropping the Abbey Road Sessions, a seven-track collection named after London’s world-renowned Abbey Road Studios, where Wallen recorded the new tunes in the famous Studio Two on Dec. 5, 2023.

One Thing At A Time remains an incredibly significant project in Wallen’s discography. It made history when it topped the Billboard Top 200 chart for 18 non-consecutive weeks, thus tying Garth Brooks’ 1991 Ropin’ the Wind record for having the most weeks at No. 1 for a country album and becoming the most-streamed album of the year in all genres on Spotify.

Wallen’s newest digital series features five live recordings from his One Thing At A Time album, as well as an unreleased tune titled, “Lies Lies Lies,” and a cover of Nothing But Thieves’ 2015 release, “Graveyard Whistling.”

Wallen Makes His London Debut

Back in December, Morgan Wallen made his way overseas to London where he made his debut to a crowd of about 20,000 excited fans at the O2 Arena. In addition to serving his stacked collection of hits to his UK fans, he took the opportunity to head over to Abbey Road Studios, which has a history of hosting many musical icons such as The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Stevie Wonder, Adele, etc. 

“Playing the O2 in London last fall and getting to record at Abbey Road, where so much iconic music has been made, was legendary for me and my band. We will never forget it,” shares Wallen of his trip. “I’m so excited to release these Abbey Road Sessions for my fans on the one-year anniversary of One Thing At A Time. They make all this possible.”

In another recent Instagram post, Wallen shared that he was “Back at it” in Nashville’s Ocean Way studio with his One Thing At A Time producer, Joey Moi. These photos alongside the caption indicate that Wallen has new music in the works. 

Among the fans’ excitement that took place throughout the comment section, fellow country star Jelly Roll noted, “It don’t get no bigger than Morgan Wallen and Joey Moi.”

One Night At A Time Tour Resumes This Spring

Wallen brought his wildly impressive year to a close in December after playing to over one million fans across five countries and three continents as part of his 57-show One Night At A Time World Tour. This April, he will launch the extended leg of his trek with newly added dates that run through August and includes 29 additional stadium shows.

Additionally, Morgan Wallen announced in February that he will be unveiling his own bar in downtown Nashville in 2024. Named after his song “This Bar,” the six-story This Bar and Tennessee Kitchen is expected to include a bar, restaurant, and live music venue. It will be located within the famous Lower Broadway district in downtown Nashville on 4th Avenue, which places it just steps away from Broadway and near the iconic Ryman Auditorium. 

“I sing about finding myself in ‘this bar’ and now it’s coming to life. This venue will hold true to everything I love and is inspired by my fans and the way they have embraced me and my music,” Wallen, 30, shared in a statement. “We’re designing a menu around some of my family favorites, so it brings a piece of East Tennessee to Music City. I hope This Bar is a place you’ll want to find yourself in and make memories with your friends and family and celebrate the way country music has brought us all together.”

An exact opening date has yet to be shared, however, it has been confirmed that the highly-anticipated new Nashville establishment will welcome fans sometime in the summer of 2024.
