Morgan Wallen Joins 2019 Taste of Country Festival Lineup
"Whiskey Glasses" singer Morgan Wallen has just been added to the 2019 Taste of Country Festival lineup. He replaces Brett Young who had to cancel due to a scheduling conflict.
The announcement was made on the ToC Fest social media pages on Monday morning. Young did not share the details of his scheduling conflict. Instead, fans in Hunter, N.Y. will get to see Wallen's first Taste of Country Festival performance. He just wrapped his headlining If I Know Me Tour and has a tour with Florida Georgia Line slated to begin just after ToC Fest.
In addition to his rising single he's notched a No. 1 hit with "Up Down" and as a songwriter on Jason Aldean's "You Make It Easy." He also scored a viral hit with a cover of "Cover Me Up," recorded for his ToC RISERS video shoot in 2018. He was the third and final RISER of 2018.
The Tennessee native will perform on June 9, ahead of Brett Eldredge and headliner Little Big Town. CMA and ACM Entertainer of the Year Keith Urban headlines June 7 and Rascal Flatts headlines June 8, with Brooks & Dunn, Lanco and Michael Ray among the other scheduled acts.
The seventh-annual Taste of Country Festival brings the best in country music to New York. Hunter Mountain is a ski resort turned into a scenic country music and camping festival one week each year. Eric Church, FGL and Sam Hunt headlined in 2018. Urban previously played in 2015.
