Songfacts®:

  • Surprise released on December 31, 2019, this song finds Morgan Wallen reflecting on all the evenings he used to spend in his hometown watering hole. It was there he learned some valuable life lessons with the help of a group of pals.

    I found myself in this bar
    Makin' mistakes and makin' new friends
    I was growin' up and nothin' made sense
    Buzzin' all night like neon in the dark
    I found myself in this bar


    Said Wallen: "Wrote this song with my buddies about some moments and times in my life that have made me who I am today. Some good, some bad, but all of em I can look back on and grin a little. Hope it makes you do the same."
