On Amazon Music, Wallen broke the global first-day streaming record for a country album debut, and on Spotify, Dangerous became the biggest all-time first day streamed record for a country album. 

The East Tennessee native recently opened up about the album and the overwhelming support he’s received from his fans in an interview with Country Now and other media outlets. While he admits he’s still getting used to his newfound superstardom, he credits his fans for always helping him to feel at home. 

“I feel like they understand me. I feel like I don’t really have to do anything different than what I normally do,” he says. “I feel very relaxed in that sense. I don’t have to wear many hats; I just kind of have one hat that I wear and they get that. So that part is really easy for me. That part, I feel at home in.”

Wallen will celebrate the release of the project on Tuesday evening with his first-ever headlining show at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium. The full band show will be live streamed on Wallen’s Facebook and YouTube
