After smiling good-naturedly through co-host Darius Rucker’s opening monologue ribbing, Morgan Wallen took the stage at the top of the 2020 CMA Awards. While a quarantine fail might’ve cost him a plum Saturday Night Live spot last month, Wallen wasn’t one of the numerous country stars whose COVID-19 exposure cost them a slot during the 2020 Country Music Awards broadcast.
Wallen performed his gently rockin’ “More Than My Hometown,” a No. 3 hit on the Hot Country Songs and Country Airplay charts. “Hometown” hails from Wallen’s forthcoming second studio album.
