Morgan Wallen will soon be able to check a major item off his bucket list as he has been confirmed as the musical guest on an upcoming episode of Saturday Night Live.
The rising star will make his SNL debut as the musical guest on the October 10 episode of NBC’s late-night comedy showcase.
“SNL. Some Back Forty Boys on the Big Screen. GAHT,” Wallen wrote on Instagram when he announced his SNL appearance.
Several of his artist friends, including Cole Swindell and Thomas Rhett, congratulated him on the news.
“Enjoy that bro. One of the coolest things ever,” Rhett wrote.
2020 has been an incredible year for Wallen, who recently shattered streaming records with his song “7 Summers.”
His current single, “More Than My Hometown,” is making its way into the Top 10 at country radio this week and it showing no signs of slowing down.
The East Tennessee native is expected to release a double album in the coming months.
Saturday Night Live airs on NBC Saturdays at 11:30 pm ET.
