Songfacts®:

  • Morgan Wallen's Dangerous album is a huge 30-track record that speaks to multiple phases of his life. It is split into two halves: Side A is more about relationships and heartbreak. This song is the first track on Side B, which amps up his redneck side by celebrating his small-town southern roots.
  • Morgan Wallen was born and raised in Sneedville, outside of Knoxville in eastern Tennessee. With a population of about 1,400, it fits the bill of a rural small town.

    Cause I'm from a small town, southern drawl crowd
    We're sippin' clear, drinkin' beer on a Friday night
    Every country girl got on her cutoffs
    Shakin' her hips, take a trip, buddy tell me I'm a liar


    Wallen is proud to speak with a "southern drawl" in a place where there is so little crime people don't lock their doors.

    The way I talk, I guess I got it from my pops
    Product of some kneelin' down
    In a town where the doors don't lock
    And there's a million other people like me


    Wallen is a son of a preacher - his father was a Baptist pastor.
  • Wallen wrote the song with:

    His close friend and frequent collaborator, Hardy.

    Charlie Handsome, who contributed to seven Dangerous tracks, including "More Than My Hometown."
  • Morgan Wallen released this as a promotional single on November 20, 2020. It debuted at #8 on the Country chart dated December 5, 2020. Another Wallen track, "Somebody's Problem," arrived at #3, meaning the Tennessee native became the first artist to debut two songs in the Top 10 simultaneously on the tally.
