In addition to deeply personal “Livin’ The Dream,”Morgan dropped two instant fan favorites, songs that fans have been begging for ever since he teased them earlier this year.
“The ‘double album’ idea started off as just a joke between me and my manager because we had accumulated so many songs over the past couple of years. Then quarantine hit, and we realized it might actually be possible to have enough time to make it happen. I also ended up writing quite a few more songs during the quarantine with some of my good buddies.
After a few months of production and fine tuning, I am so proud of what we came up with. I know 32 (eventual) songs sounds like a lot to digest, but I truly did my best to make sure there’s not a song that I would press ‘next’ on. I also wanted the songs to speak to multiple phases of life and have multiple different sounds based on my influences and based on what I enjoy.
The three songs that we will put out next week will hopefully encapsulate a lot of the project for you and hold you off until January. Thank y’all!”
Written by Morgan Wallen, along with Hardy and Ryan Vojtesak, “Still Goin Down” is a Friday night, small town, party anthem for country folks across the entire country.
“‘Cause I’m from a small town, southern drawl crowd We’re sippin’ clear, drinkin’ beer on a Friday night Every country girl got on a cutoff Shakin’ her hips, take a trip, but he tell me I’m a liar So circle up big trucks around a fire Still kickin’ up some dust behind the tires Call it cliché, but hey, just take it from me It’s still goin’ down out in the country.”

And then there is this one, another that had fans hooked from the beginning. Although, in that initial teaser featuring the second verse, we got the uncensored version. Not gonna lie, like that one better…
Written by Morgan along with Rodney Clawson, Jacob Durrett and Ernest, “Somebody’s Problem” is about turning that breathtaking first look into something more, knowing full well she’s a heartbreaker.
“Somebody’s problem, somebody’s goodbye Somebody’s last call number that they can’t find Somebody’s best day, somebody’s worst night Somebody’s reason for leavin’ on the porch light Thinkin’ ’bout them tan lines and I’m thinkin’ damn, I’d Love to drown in them heartbreaker blue eyes She’s somebody’s problem and somebody’s problem’s About to be mine.”
