Country superstar Morgan Wallen recently brought his Dangerous Tour to Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena for a sold-out, three-night run. Playing for a total of 41,634 fans, the high-energy shows featured special guests Larry Fleet and HARDY as well as a number of surprises collaborations that concertgoers won’t soon forget. 

The chart-topping singer/songwriter wowed the capacity crowds with stellar production and a set list that had fans singing along to every word.

Each night, Wallen entered the stage from below and prompted a massive sing-along with his latest No.1 hit, “Sand In My Boots.” He went on to perform several tracks from his ACM Album of the Year-winning project, Dangerous: The Double Album, including “7 Summers,” “Silverado For Sale,” and “Still Goin Down,” as well as “Up Down” and “Chasin’ You” from his debut release. 

It wouldn’t be a Nashville show without a few surprise guests and Wallen more than delivered with superstars popping up each and every night to join him on stage. Here’s a recap of the artists who surprised fans during Wallen’s Nashville shows.
