Isbell to donate his share of Morgan Wallen's sales to NAACP
February 11, 2021
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Grammy-winning singer songwriter Jason Isbell says he is going to donate money that he makes from Morgan Wallen's cover of his song "Cover Me Up" to the NAACP.
Wallen, who has had the No. 1 album in the country for the past four weeks, was caught on camera last week saying a racial slur, but sales of his record increased after radio stations removed him from their playlists.
Isbell, a popular Americana artist and former member of the Drive-By Truckers, wrote "Cover Me Up," which Wallen included as a cover in his sophomore record, "Dangerous: The Double Album."
