Morgan Wallen Brings the Energy in ‘Whatcha Know ‘Bout That’ Live Video [Watch]
Morgan Wallen is taking his knowledge of country living to the stage in the energetic live video for his song "Whatcha Know 'Bout That."
Taped during Wallen's sold-out show at Marathon Music Works in Nashville in January, he makes his way onto the stage fired up, launching into a country song that incorporates influences of rock and hip-hop. Wallen maintains high energy throughout the performance as he makes his way across the stage, rocking out to the rowdy track.
The audience members are going crazy in the video, their hands in the air as they sing along to lyrics that are steeped in backwoods culture, with Wallen referencing Little Cherry Skoal Dip tobacco, long neck beers and sugar pie.

"Let's order up a couple long necks / Maybe take a two-step or two / Teach you how to ya'll with a southern drawl / Get you falling 'fore the night is through," he sings, lighting up the crowd with each word.
The video proves that the 2018 Taste of Country RISER is a performer with the confidence and swagger to fill the stage, and the audience can feel that. The rising star ended the performance with a spirited, "Whatcha know about that, Nashville?" as fans cheered loudly in support.
"Whatcha Know 'Bout That" is featured on Wallen's debut album If I Know Me, and was co-written by songwriter-turned-artist Hardy, Craig Wiseman, Wendy Waldman, Josh Leo, Jim Photoglo and Cameron Montgomery.
Wallen is set to hit the road with his mentors and "Up Down" collaborators Florida Georgia Line on their Can't Say I Ain't Country Tour, kicking off June 13 in Arkansas and continuing through Sept. 28, when it wraps in Irvine, Calif.
