Since releasing his award-winning record, Dangerous: The Double Album earlier this year, fans have been eager to hear more from country hitmaker, Morgan Wallen, and it seems he has a plethora of new tunes up his sleeve as he been sharing several new unreleased songs. Of that selection of unreleased tunes, one track that fans really grew to love was “Broadway Girls,” a song that Wallen teased throughout social media in October.
During a recent interview on the Just Being ERNEST podcast, the singer revealed he may be ready to share the full version of his unreleased new track titled, “Broadway Girls” in the near future.
In October, Wallen first shared a minute-long teaser of the song inspired by Nashville’s iconic Broadway street. The lyrics reveal details of 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 Instagram and TikTok posts with the snippet of the unreleased track.
“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 sang in the clip.
Fans immediately flooded the comment sections on social media with requests to drop the song as soon as possible. Fellow singer/songwriter and longtime friend ERNEST also shared the same excitement in the midst of their discussion, when he brought up the highly anticipated song, which has taken TikTok by storm.
“‘Broadway Girls’ though, something’s got to happen with it,” ERNEST said.
“I’ve been on the horn about that today a little bit, I don’t know what’s going to happen with it, but… there’s a few options,” Wallen admitted.
“What if somebody leaks it?” ERNEST asked before pointing out the success it has already seen on TikTok.
“Yeah, I might leak it. It might end up on somebody’s album, you never know. We’ll see,” Wallen said.
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 frequently visits the four-level Jason Aldean’s Kitchen + Rooftop Bar. This summer, when he was unable to book gigs in major venues, Wallen spent time at the Nashville hangout playing on stage and even surprised fans with a performance of “Sand In My Boots” and “Wasted On You.”
Not long after this performance took place, Wallen and Aldean shared the stage with Luke Bryan and Tyler Hubbard for a surprise performance of “She’s Country” at Bridgestone Arena during Bryan’s sold-out Proud to be Right Here tour date in Nashville, Tennessee.
During the podcast, Wallen and ERNEST also shouted out Wallen’s cousin, Andrew Greene, who gets a mention in “Broadway Girls.”
“Shoutout Andrew Greene, dude, string bean, if you guys hear that in ‘Broadway Girls,’ when it comes out, that’s who we’re talking about,” Wallen said.
“That’s exactly right, Bean got a shout-out in that song,” ERNEST chimed in.
The shoutout to Greene is during the chorus when Wallen sings, “Bean had to take her phone and that just took her smile away…”

After an almost year-long hiatus, Wallen will be heading back on the road in 2022 for his nearly sold-out Dangerous tour with special guests Hardy and Larry Fleet, which kicks off in early February 2022 in Evansville, IN.
