Morgan Wallen and Florida Georgia Line perform "Up Down" on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

On the heels of releasing his debut album, If I Know Me, rising country star Morgan Wallen made his live TV debut Thursday night (April 26), confidently strutting around the Jimmy Kimmel Live! stage to perform his single “Up Down.” Kicking off the Florida Georgia Line- assisted party tune on his own, Wallen had his mentors-turned-collaborators join him to take the energy even higher for the second half of the rowdy performance.

With a full band blasting behind the trio, and lights flashing all around them, the guys rocked out to their hit in some cool jackets, with FGL sporting denim and Wallen looking like a rock star in white leather. The guys performed the track together while Wallen was on the road with Florida Georgia Line on last year's Smooth Tour, but their Kimmel performance marks their first TV appearance together.

"Up Down," Wallen's lead single from If I Know Me, was recently certified gold. While FGL have been burning up the Hot Country Songs with their smash Bebe Rexha collab "Meant to Be" (recently topping the Country Airplay chart as well), the duo is on their way to helping Wallen to his first top 10 hit, as "Up Down" sits at No. 13 on Country Airplay and No. 16 on Hot Country Songs (both dated April 28).

Check out the performance below, as well as a follow up performance Wallen gave later that night of his song “Whiskey Glass.” If I Know Me is available everywhere now.
