It appears that Morgan Wallen’s time on Broadway has inspired his new music.
The singer/songwriter just shared a snippet of a brand-new song on Instagram, and it details a night in Downtown Nashville with a girl he met at “Aldean’s,” a SoBro bar owned by fellow country star Jason Aldean.
“IDK what this is or what it’s for but sounds bout right,” Wallen captioned his post with the work tape of the hip-hop inspired track.
The nearly minute-long clip features the lyrics:
“I met her down at Aldean’s / she said she that saw me walking in about a mile away / bouncers had to take her phone and that just took her smile away / she said I’m too drunk and crazy she don’t like the way I dance / I said you don’t have to join in / she said she’d take a chance / I’ve been kind of crazy since it went down / I get kind lost and this is what I found / girls like you just want to take me around, around and around / there’s two things that you’re going to find out / they don’t love you, and they only love you right now / if I was smarter I would’ve stayed my ass at home and leave them Broadway girls alone / Broadway girls alone / Broadway girls alone…”
Wallen frequents the four-level Jason Aldean’s Kitchen + Rooftop Bar and even surprised fans with a performance of “Sand In My Boots” and “Wasted On You” at the popular Nashville hangout in June.
Sonically, the track is a bit different from what fans are used to hearing from Wallen and even had some Instagram users comparing the song to Post Malone.
Wallen and Aldean have been friends for quite some time now. Wallen co-wrote Aldean’s 2018 hit “You Make It Easy,” which appear on the superstar’s Rearview Town album.
Following the controversy surrounding Wallen’s use of the n-word, Aldean shared his support for the singer/songwriter during an interview on the Just Being Ernest podcast.
“To me, I think he’s one of the most talented guys that has come through this town in a long time just from a writer’s standpoint, a singing standpoint,” Aldean said. “He was out on tour with me last year and to me and I even told Morgan this when he was out with us, I was like man, you’re the next superstar of our business, man. I mean you could just tell, he just kind of had that thing. I love his voice, I love the songs he’s cutting, I love his vibe, he’s got his own little thing that’s him that’s nobody else, and I think to me that’s what being a star is. He’s the guy that I’ve been the most excited about in this town for a long time.”
In late July, Wallen and Aldean shared the stage alongside Luke Bryan and Tyler Hubbard for a surprise performance of “She’s Country” at Bridgestone Arena.
