Amid the Bridgestone concerts, Wallen hosted an exclusive performance for eight fans on Saturday night (March 19). days later, he shared a new post on Instagram admitting his exhaustion was intimidating, but “those fans were so cool and grateful. They brought an energy to this room that made me dig a little deeper than I knew I could. I didn’t sing the best I ever had or play the best I ever had. But not only did I end up enjoying it, it ended up being a musical experience I’ll never forget. I had a lot last week. So thank you to the 8 people from last night. I know you represent countless others. Extremely grateful for the connection we have through this music.
