Morgan Wallen is back on top at country radio with “Chasin’ You,” a nostalgic ode to the one that got away. He wrote the melodic, mid-tempo song with Craig Wiseman and Jamie Moore.
“Chasin’ You” is Wallen’s third single to reach No. 1 on Billboard’s country airplay chart, following “Whiskey Glasses” and “Up Down,” his collaboration with Florida Georgia Line. All three songs come from his 2018 debut album, If I Know Me, which has just been released on vinyl.
“I remember the day we wrote this song,” Wallen stated. “I had just moved to Nashville not even six months prior. I had never written with Craig or Jamie before, so I knew I needed to bring my A-game. They both made me feel comfortable and inspired. When writing the song I never imagined that it would be a #1 or that I’d be singing it in front of thousands of people. It’s crazy to think about what all has transpired in my life since that day. But that day spurred a song, relationships, and a confidence that has helped me tremendously this far in my career.”
He added, “Thank you to everyone on my team for believing in me since day one. From my managers, producer, agent, label, promo staff, publishers, and so many more. Thank you to country radio for also believing in me and showing me support. I’ll never forget your kindness. We’re all chasin’ something it seems, with this song we were chasin’ a #1 — looks like we were blessed enough to catch it.”
Wallen, who turned 27 last week, is expected to release his second album later this year. His newest digital singles include “This Bar” and “More Than My Hometown.”
