Morgan Wallen played a pop-up, stripped-down acoustic set for fans at Graduate Nashville’s Cross-Eyed Critters Watering Hole on March 19.
Fans were given a hint of the pop-up show via an Instagram post from Graduate Nashville just hours before the show. Seated with guitar in hand, alongside bandmates Dominic Frost and Tyler Tomlinson, the East Tennessean treated those in attendance to cuts from his ACM Album of the Year, Dangerous: The Double Album, including its title track, current single “Wasted on You,” “More Than My Hometown” and If I Know Me’s “Chasin’ You.”
“Since my parents fostered and now officially adopted my sister Lacey, I’ve witnessed what love and care can do for a child that didn’t have it before. She has transformed into a confident, trusting and happy kid,” Wallen shared in a statement on the foundation’s website. “There are many elements that aid in the development and protection of an adolescent’s life, and that is why I created the [More Than My Hometown] Foundation so a child’s resources are not limited due to their circumstances.”
After three consecutive sold out shows at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena, the night served as a prize rewarded to a raffle winner from his Morgan Wallen & Friends Show at Marathon Music Works on Sept. 8, where over $800,000 was raised for flood victims of Middle Tennessee.
In 2022, $3 from every ticket sold on his “Dangerous Tour” benefits the More Than My Hometown Foundation. His three-night stop at Bridgestone Arena raised over $120,000 that will be put into initiatives for adolescent development, resources and local communities.
