Wallen drops "865" video
Tuesday, October 19, 2021
– Morgan Wallen is out today with a new performance video, "865," the latest installment of The Dangerous Sessions today.
The video is the first of six soon-to-be released videos continuing Wallen's original series.
Directed by Justin Clough and filmed in his hometown of Knoxville, Tenn., the clip finds Wallen putting a nostalgic take on his sandpaper vocal and stripping down "865" to capture the emptiness of a broken heart.
Written by John Byron and Blake Pendergrass, the track is part of Wallen's "Dangerous: The Double Album," and now joins "Sand In My Boots" and "Wasted on You" from his ongoing The Dangerous Sessions performance series.
Shortly after the release of the album in January, Wallen was caught on camera using the "N" word. He subsequently was suspended by his label, and radio refused to play his songs. Wallen said he had been drinking alcohol when he made the racist rant outside of his home.
Wallen will hit the road to perform for four sold-out crowds including Auburn Rodeo on Oct. 23 and then will light up Country Thunder Bristol on Oct. 30 with Granger Smith (featuring Earl Dibbles Jr.), Larry Fleet, Jon Langston and ERNEST.

Proof positive is his "Dangerous: The Double Album," which is a humongous 30 songs long! It's a two-CD set. Not like a double album from back in the LP era, but a double full-length CD effort. Therefore, if you want to take a deep dive with this one, make sure you have plenty of air in your scuba tank. ...
"Like a lot of people my age, I didn't necessarily grow up listening to country music...I grew up living it." It's a little unsettling thought from the 24-year old Morgan Wallen. You wouldn't want to hear from your doctor that they substituted book learning for feel. But music may well be different, and Wallen does have some legitimate country cred - he hails not far from the Tennessee Cumberland Gap and went to Kenny Chesney's high school (What an alumni party that would be!). ...
