LONDON, U.K. – Morgan Wallen celebrated his American Express presents BST Hyde Park debut with a London takeover on July 4, complete with projections of his One Thing At A Time cover art throughout four of the city’s iconic destinations – Camden, Southbank, Tate Modern and Wellington Arch – and a surprise drop of a U.K. exclusive “Lies Lies Lies” physical CD, available for purchase HERE. “Lies Lies Lies” is available now on all streaming platforms; listen HERE.

Wallen’s Hyde Park show marked his first U.K. appearance since performing to a sold-out crowd at The O2 in Dec. 2023, and the first time a contemporary country artist has headlined an all genre festival. Traversing the audience of 50,000 through 24 songs – becoming the largest country concert ever held in the U.K. – Wallen’s pyro-filled set ignited the enthusiastic crowd, as he treated them to a solo rendition of current single “I Had Some Help,” an acoustic performance of newly-released “Lies Lies Lies” and a plethora of hits before capping the night with “The Way I Talk” off his 2018 debut album If I Know Me.

er, Daniel Ross and Chris Tompkins, and produced by Joey Moi, Wallen timed the release of “Lies Lies Lies” to his return to the city where it was originally recorded. Recorded at London’s iconic Studio Two at Abbey Road Studios on Dec. 5, 2023, “Lies Lies Lies” was part of his Abbey Road Sessionsreleased on March 3, 2024 to celebrate the one-year anniversary of his record-breaking third studio album, One Thing At A Time.
“Lies Lies Lies” arrives as Wallen’s Billboard Hot 100 six-week No. 1 hit with Post Malone, “I Had Some Help” becomes 2024's longest running No. 1, while simultaneously skyrocketing to No. 1 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart in just seven weeks – the quickest climb to the top since Garth Brooks’ “More Than a Memory” in 2007. The single’s global appeal led it to reach No.1 across the UK, Australia and Canada, in addition to the US last week.

About Morgan Wallen:
When 11-time 2023 Billboard Music Awards-winner and Top Male Artist Morgan Wallen released his third studio album One Thing At A Time in 2023, its instant success left 
The New York Times proclaiming Wallen as “one of the biggest stars in pop, period.” One Thing At A Time has remained atop the all-genre Billboard 200 chart for 19 non-consecutive weeks, surpassing Garth Brooks’ Ropin’ the Wind with the most weeks at No. 1 for a Country album, and was the most-streamed album of the year on Spotify. The album’s 6x-Platinum single “Last Night” reeled in over 1.5 billion streams globally, becoming the most-streamed song of any genre in the U.S. across Apple Music and Spotify, and the longest running No. 1 solo song in Hot 100 history (16 weeks total). Recent collab with Post Malone, “I Had Some Help,” debuted at country radio with 167 first week adds, becoming only the second single in chart history to debut with the support of all reporting stations, opening at No. 15 on the Mediabase charts. Since its release, “I Had Some Help” has remained No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 all-genre charts for six weeks, becoming the longest-running No.1 of 2024.
With 14 chart-toppers at country radio, Wallen played for 5 countries/3 continents in 2023 for his One Night At A Time World Tour stadium tour. Performing to over 2.4 million fans, One Night At A Time was named a Billboard and Pollstar Country Tour of the Year,
 surpassing attendance records in numerous stops; including Ohio Stadium, where Wallen became the largest weekend ever for the venue. The 36-show 2024 extension of One Night At A Time takes Wallen to 24 additional stadium-plays, and will include Wallen’s first European run with seven shows this fall. Wallen donates a portion from every ticket sold to his Morgan Wallen Foundation.
