It's safe to say the UK's loyal country music fanbase were already hugely excited for Morgan Wallen's return across The Pond for BST Hyde Park 2024, but now their sense of anticipation will undoubtedly be sky-rocketing as his support acts are unveiled.

A blockbuster combination of Riley Green, ERNEST and Ella Langley will take the stage ahead of Morgan's headlining set on July 4th, with additional artists still to be announced.

This will mark Riley Green's first ever performance in the UK, with ticket-holders looking forward to hearing the ‘Lifestyle Country’ trailblazer reeling off hits such as ‘I Wish Grandpas Never Died’, ‘There Was This Girl’, ‘Worst Way’ and ‘Different ‘Round Here’.

We're also hoping the Alabama singer-songwriter treats the packed-out Hyde Park crowd to a live rendition of his much-loved ballad, ‘Jesus Saves’, which appears on his latest EP, Way Out Here. Given the fact that Bruce Springsteen headlined BST Hyde Park last year, it'll be fitting if Green chooses to perform another stand-out from Way Out Here, his now-signature cover of ‘The Boss’s ‘Atlanta City’.

ERNEST is another artist that'll be making his UK live debut, with the ‘Flower Shops’ crooner surely expected to join Morgan during his set for an electrifying performance of their beat-driven collaboration ’Cowgirls’, which is currently surging up the charts.

Completing the trio of newly added artists is Ella Langley, one of country music's fast-emerging prodigies. Having dropped a series of fan-favourite singles in recent months, from the sparse, intricate slow-burner, ‘nicotine’, to the uptempo, addictive heartbreak anthem, ‘Paint the Town Blue’, Langley continues to establish herself as a future star of the genre, and UK country fans will certainly relish the chance to see her performing live in just a couple of months’ time.

Today's introductions to the line-up cement Morgan Wallen's BST Hyde Park 2024 date as one of the biggest - if not the biggest - country events of the summer, as the ‘Last Night’ chart-topper again strengthens his relationship with the UK following a momentous debut performance back in December at London's O2 arena.

While Morgan's setlist is already packed with fire-starters, we're keeping our fingers crossed he'll have released a new single or two by the time his BST Hyde Par set rolls around. The Sneedville megastar has teased a slew of tracks of late that have since gone viral, including ‘I Guess’, ‘Lies, Lies, Lies’ and most recently ‘Love Somebody’.
