Lonesomeville

Songfacts®:

  • William Michael Morgan wrote this song on the beach in Perdido Key, Florida with the help of Mark Sherill, Trent Tomlinson and Ash Underwood. He recalled to Billboard magazine:

    "Mark Sherill had brought the idea over and had it in kind of an uptempo shuffle deal. I said, you know what, at the time we had a couple shuffles we were looking at, so let's maybe slow this thing down a little bit.

    Trent Tomlinson being the great songwriter that he is, by the time I went to the bathroom and came back, he already had the first half of the verse and half of the chorus wrote. An hour after writing it, we were down on the beach drinking something."
