On Jan. 8, 2021, at 12 AM EST, country singer Morgan Wallen released his first double album, Dangerous. The album includes some of his already released and extremely well regarded songs such as 7 Summers, More Than My Hometown, and Heartless. With featured artists Ben Burgess and Chris Stapleton, and harmonies that merit a chef’s kiss, this one hour and 37 minutes of ear crack is only a fraction of the absolute smackers that Wallen has produced, but showcases his talent and expertise beautifully.
