The duo have been teasing the new song for a while now, playing it at quite a few live shows together after Morgandebuted it himself at Loser’sin Nashville over the summer.
Written by Ernest, Ben Burgess, and Mark Holman, the song was inspired by George Jones’ classic “A Good Year For The Roses,” and is easily one of the most traditionally country-sounding songs that Morgan’s ever released.
Fans have been begging for the song since Morgan began playing it live, with Morgan saying recently that it was one of three unreleased songs that fans will DM him on Instagram and ask him to play before his concerts.
And it’s not hard to see why.
I’m a big fan of Morgan’s more country-sounding songs, and for me this is one of the best that he’s done – if not THE best.
I’ll admit that I’m not as familiar with Ernest’s music, but I saw him play a song live a few months ago and the dude actually has a killer voice, so I have a feeling “Flower Shops” is also going to introduce him to a new audience who may not have necessarily heard his own music yet.
While I’m sure there are people who are going to criticize it just because it’s Morgan and he’s not seen as the most “traditional country” artist out there (especially after that “Broadway Girls” feature with Lil Durk), I have a feeling his fans are going to send this one straight to the top of the charts.
It’s exactly what I hope to see more of from Morgan…
