Wallen will make his Stagecoach Festival debut before continuing his headlining Up Down Tour. He then joins Luke Bryan's What Makes You Country Tour on May 31 in Toronto.

Wallen has co-penned songs for A Thousand Horses ("Preachin' to the Choir"), Dustin Lynch ("Party Song" from "Current Mood") and Kane Brown ("Rockstars" from Brown's self-titled debut full length), as well as Jason Aldean's Top 5 "You Make It Easy." Wallen's five-song EP "The Way I Talk" came out in 2016.
