Morgan Wallen shared a brand-new song, “More Than My Hometown,” on April 17.
Co-penned by Morgan, Michael Hardy, Ernest Keith Smith and Ryan Vojtesak and produced by Joey Moi, “More Than My Hometown” will be included on Morgan’s upcoming sophomore album, which is expected to drop later this year.
The new tune features Morgan staying true to his small-town roots as he says goodbye to the girl: “I love you more than a California sunset / More than a beer when you ain’t 21 yet / More than a Sunday morning Lord / Turning some poor lost souls around, and Hallelujah bound / I love you more than the feeling when the bass hits the hook / When a guy gets the girl at the end of the book / But baby this might be the last time I get to lay you down / Cause I can’t love you more than my hometown.”
Morgan has been turning heads with his music, mullet and easygoing manner since bursting on the scene two years ago. The 26-year-old native of Sneedville, Tenn. (population 1,346) scored back-to-back No. 1 singles with “Up Down” (June 2018) and “Whiskey Glasses” (June 2019). His current single, “Chasin’ You,” moved into the Top 5 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart this week.
