Country Mornings with Jonathan & Ayla

Morgan Wallen can’t get to a chorus without singing about drinking on his new album. It’s true and I’m going to prove it!

Party boy and music superstar, Morgan Wallen, either loves drinking, or just loves singing about it! Morgan released his 36-track album, “One Thing At A Time,” in March of 2023. When I listened through for the first time I noticed that there were a lot of songs about drinking. There were catchy and clever metaphors about alcohol and a lot of nights finding himself in “neon bars.” (And let me be clear, those are my favorite songs of his!)

Morgan Wallen Revived Party Guy

Morgan Wallen is no stranger to the party scene. In March of 2020, he was kicked out of Kid Rock’s Big Ass Honky Tonk Rock N’ Roll Steakhouse in Nashville for being too intoxicated. He got in verbal altercations with people as nearby police officers watched. And then, who can forget the night he used a racial slur outside of his home in February of 2021? TMZ caught the moment on camera, and sadly, Morgan’s career was on thin ice with the radio industry and recording industry for almost two years.

Radio stations are playing Morgan Wallen again. His music is the most-streamed of any country artist, and his shows sell out before fans even have a fighting chance to buy a ticket.

While it seems like all of songs are about drinking, you’re pretty much correct. But, there are only TWO songs on his 36-song album that don’t have alcohol even mentioned in it! (I’ll let you scroll and see which ones they are).

Here’s Morgan Wallen’s “One Thing At A Time” album broken down by how quickly or how slowly he sings about booze/whiskey/barstools etc. Enjoy! What song do you think he sings about whiskey in the first line? See below!

  • Hope That's True: 72 Seconds

  • Cowgirls (feat. ERNEST): 70 Seconds

    “I hate that I love the way them kisses taste like whiskey

    Let ’em run”

  • Tennessee Numbers: 63 Seconds

    “Damn, it’s good to hear your voice

    Yeah, I know it’s late, I’m sorry
    No, I swear I ain’t that drunk
    I know she won’t and I don’t blame her

    Kinda like good whiskey, Keith Whitley and you”

  • Wine Into Water: 54 Seconds

    “Cause I’m here to say sorry with a to the top glass

    And turn this wine into water under the bridge”

    Daddy ain’t sure about it
    She wants to move on out to who knows where
    She gots some down home, she just found it
    She got the whole town thinking that she grew up there, yeah”

  • Dying Man: 39 Seconds

    “Codeine, it got Elvis
    Whiskey, it got Hank
    I always thought something like that
    Might send me on my way
    But you took hold of me
    Like only a woman can
    And gave one good reason to live
    To a set on dying man”

  • Neon Star (Country Boy Lullaby): 29 Seconds

    “They beat us every damn year
    It’s been a minute since we pulled out a win

  • In The Bible (feat HARDY): 25 Seconds

    “Paint your truck tread with some red dust
    While you kick up the long way home
    Share some bootleg with your best buds
    Wear a bit of that bonfire smoke
    If a back porch swing and twang in your words

    Yeah, I know you’ve been worrying ’bout me
    You’ve been losin’ sleep since ’93”

  • Sunrise: 25 Seconds

    “On my Fridays when it’s whiskey, I go back to Cincy
    That Ohio night you tricked me into buying all your shots
    Got your ghost up in my Chevy, shotgun lookin’ ready

    When that 20/20 hindsight vision opens up your eyes”

  • Man Made A Bar (feat. Eric Church): 15 Seconds

    Sat down on a barstool, like a dern fool

    Lookin’ for a number you ain’t ever gonna call again
    I got ya, I’ll type it in
    But, baby, if you’re looking for”

  • Good Girl Gone Missin': 14 Seconds

    Bar lights
    Bar stool
    Too many
    One fool
    Long neck

    Looking for a reason that
    I ain’t found yet”
