what does morgan wallen sing (best morgan wallen songs)

If we take a look at the popping country star, Morgan Wallen’s name will pop up. It’s hard to believe that Morgan Wallen debuted his first album If I Know Me in 2018 and in less than a decade, he has managed to release other songs that have skyrocketed unbelievably.

We knew Morgan had potential when he first appeared in The Voice Season 6 in 2014. With his raspy voice, he made Shakira turn her chair in the very beginning but Wallen ended up with Usher.

To this day, he still impresses his audience with his raspy voice and has been one of the most popular artists of his generation. Let’s take a look at some of Wallen’s biggest tunes.

Stand Alone

Adam Levine stole Morgan Wallen in The Voice Season 6 and got eliminated after the playoffs. Well, Morgan’s performance on The Voice helped him to get a record deal with Panacea Records.

Under Panacea Records, Wallen released the single, “Stand Alone” in 2015. Stand Alone had a great story. It speaks that sometimes love can betray you and you need to move on in life even if you have to stand alone.


The song is really sentimental and is about a heartbreak where Wallen is drunk calling his ex.  “I know I told you I wouldn’t call and I tried/But this bottle tastes like 865,”

The code ‘865’ is from the place where he spent his childhood, East Tennessee. John Byron and Blake Pendergrass originally wrote it and it was sent t to Wallen with the title 919 but Wallen didn’t had any connection with the code.

The area code 865 refers to Knoxville Tennessee. Wallen didn’t only just write about his ex but he also revealed her number: 865 409-1021. If you try to call here it will send you to U.S. TelePunch, where you’ll need a four-digit PIN. Fortunately, Wallen has revealed it.
