Wallen received considerable backlash in 2021 after a video surfaced of him saying, “take care of this p***y-ass n***a.” Wallen made an appearance on “Good Morning America” in July 2021 to apologize for his behavior, describing how he had learned from his mistake and was taking the necessary steps to evolve his ignorance.

Even with Country Music Television banning him, his agents at WME dropping him, and other major country entertainment affiliates removing Wallen from awards shows, radio stations and more, the American people have spoken: Wallen’s music is superb, and no one is less Surprised Than Me.

The album is exceptionally crafted, written with heartfelt honesty, with every track being more than brilliant enough to be a single. It looks like Wallen will be hitting the Whisky Glasses to celebrate himself Livin’ The Dream. He’s definitely made it out from This Side of a Dust Cloud … for now.
