Morgan Wallen’s Nashville arrest mocked by fellow country singer: ‘Alexa, play The Chair By George Strait’

Morgan Wallen’s Sunday night arrest at Eric Church’s Nashville bar was mocked by country artist Ernest.

Ernest, who collaborated with Wallen on “Flower Shops” in 2022, shared a post on Instagram poking fun at the “Last Night” singer’s night out. Wallen’s evening on the town ended in a cop car after he allegedly threw a chair off the rooftop bar Chief’s. 

“Alexa, play ‘The Chair’ by George Strait,” Ernest wrote on social media.

The video showed the country music artist driving in the car listening to his song “I Would If I Could.”
