She wrote the track alongside her producer Sadler Vaden of Jason Isbell’s band, The 400 Unit, and in the new music video, we find her on a date who, according the story she tells on the track, is a decent amount older than her.
It’s a super cool concept for a song that I haven’t really heard before. It finds Morgan wishing she could’ve known her guy when he was a little bit younger and wilder, hence the title. He seems to have matured and grown up some since he “rolled in from the Windy City,” as she tells it, and the story pairs so well with her perfectly gritty, raspy voice.
