Morgan Wallen admits not every song he writes is based on his life; a lot of his lyrics are based on things that he’s seen.
Morgan told us of the subject of his song “Silverado For Sale,” in which a man sells his truck to buy a ring for the woman he loves. He said, “Obviously I’m not married I didn’t sell my truck to buy a ring. I’ve still got my truck. But I’ve watched people that I grew up with, a lot of my friends are married and I’ve seen it. I’ve seen people make sacrifices for someone they love and I think that’s beautiful and I thought that story in that song was one of the coolest perspectives I’ve heard, especially about a truck.”
Wallen adds that the song is a bit unusual, as far as songs about trucks go. “It’s another truck song but it’s unique and I reacted to it just based off of what I’ve seen from my friends and family just growing up and coming from a place from where money is not always flowing so I’ve seen sacrifices made for people they love.”
Morgan’s new Dangerous Double alum still sits on the top of the Billboard Top 200 chart for the third week straight.
