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).
