Morgan Wallen has topped the country charts yet again, this time with his latest single, “Everything I Love.” That marks Wallen’s 11th No. 1 at country radio, coming less than three months after Wallen scored his 10th No. 1 in October 2023 with his viral tune, “Thinkin’ Bout Me.”

Wallen Earned His 11th No. 1 Hit With “Everything I Love”

“Everything I Love” is an up-tempo, twang-heavy track that leans a bit more country than some of Wallen’s genre-bending, hip hop-infused work and is a staple at the singer’s concerts. It was written by Wallen with Ashley Gorley, Ernest Keith Smith, Ryan Vojtesak and features an interpolation of the Allman Brothers’ “Midnight Rider.” 

“Everything I Love” is from Wallen’s blockbuster 36-song album One Thing at a Time, which was released in March and has seen incredible success. The East Tennessee native is currently working on his follow-up, sharing in a recent Billboard profile that he is already writing and looking at new songs for his fourth album. Wallen’s co-producer, Charlie Handsome, shared that he thinks Wallen will be seeing more success at pop radio with his new material following the success of his smash single “Last Night.”

“I’m expecting to see more songs that can go No. 1 at pop radio because I think people have seen that a country singer with a very Southern voice by himself without a feature can still have a No. 1 Billboard hit,” Handsome said. “Morgan’s leading the way for what country music is now and what it’s becoming.”

Wallen has also been writing with Post Malone, who is working on a country album of his own. “[He] likes to write really, really late at night — and I can’t do that three nights in a row. I can do that one night,” Wallen said with a laugh of his friend. “I can start about 5 p.m., but starting at 10 p.m. — that’s rough.”

He also recently shared an audio work tape of an unreleased new song, titled “I Had Some Help,” that he worked on with Post Malone, ERNEST and Charlie Handsome, which he has since deleted.

More Singles To Come From Wallen’s One Thing At A Time

Despite Wallen’s time in the studio, several songs from his One Thing At A Time album will still impact country radio as singles, including his newest single, the Eric Church-assisted “Man Made A Bar,” which the duo performed at the CMA Awards last month.

Brett Tyler, who penned the advisory song with Larry Fleet, Rocky Block and Jordan Dozzi, told American Songwriter that the track was written while he was out on the road for some writing sessions with Fleet.

“I’d had this idea of a guy who had either gotten broken up with, one of those classic country songs that you make fun of a little bit like, ‘It’s just another guy walking into a bar,’” Tyler shared. “But I’m telling the guys it’d be really interesting if this was a bigger thing than that where he sits down at the bar and the bartender can tell what he’s going through because he went through something similar. To me, it seems like the reason that this bartender opened the bar was to help him get through the hardships of life. Whether it’s the right way or the wrong way, it’s just what he did.”

Wallen is currently in the midst of his sprawling One Night At A Time World Tour, which will visit stadiums through August 2024. He told Billboard that he has plans for a full international tour, possibly in 2025, after beginning 2023 with shows in Australia and ending with a show at the O2 Arena in London on December 3 that sold out in one hour.
