Fans of rising country star, Morgan Wallen are in for a real treat today. The singer-songwriter finally released another song off his highly-anticipated sophomore record. “More Than My Hometown” follows the nostalgic single “This Bar.”
Written with singer-songwriters HARDY and Ernest with Ryan Vojtesak, Wallen knocks it out of the park with this romantic, yet angsty jam. Somehow, in his young career, Wallen has found a way to write and record songs that feel personal and true to his story, while engaging fans across the country genre. This particular cut finds Wallen at a romantic crossroads. Similar to the vibes of former single which is climbing the charts, “Chasin’ You” and deep cut “Talkin’ Tennessee,” the singer pours his heart out on the song, realizing that sometimes people who love each other are headed down two different paths.
Despite the melancholy nature of the narrative, Wallen somehow combines elements of heartbreak with nostalgia and a sense of hope. Although there is conflict in the song, Wallen reminds the girl of all the ways he can and does love her, even though realizing that things might not work out in the end.
“I love you more than a California sunset / More than a beer when you ain’t 21 yet / More than a Sunday morning Lord, turning some poor lost soul found, Hallelujah bound / I love you more than the feeling when the bass hits the hook / When a guy gets the girl at the end of the book / But baby this might be the last time I get to lay you down / ’Cause I can’t love you more than my hometown”
Wallen remains one of the most exciting artists in the genre. He has garnered an incredibly loyal fanbase in his short few years with mainstream attention. With the way his career has blossomed, we are sure his sophomore record is going to bring him to the next level. Soon enough, we predict that the singer will be selling out arenas of his own.
