Morgan Wallen just announced his much-anticipated new album, One Thing At A Time, and it’s dropping SOON.  

The country superstar took to social media on Monday (Jan. 30) to announce his new album, which will serve as his third studio project. 

“This announcement has been a long time coming. I’m releasing my album pre-order tonight!!” he wrote.

The East Tennessee native also surprised fans with the news that he’s releasing three brand-new tracks. “And releasing 3 new songs to celebrate – ‘Last Night,’ ‘Everything I Love’ and ‘I Wrote The Book,’” he wrote. 

One Thing At A Time will showcase Wallen’s wide range of musical influences as well as combine his love for country, rock and hip-hop. 

“This record represents the last few years of my life, the highs and the lows,” Wallen said in a press release. “It also brings together the musical influences that have shaped me as an artist – country, alternative and hip-hop.”

“I just try to tell it how it is – the good, the bad, the love, the heartbreak. That’s all I know how to do,” Wallen admitted. “My hope is that this album makes my fans proud; makes ’em laugh, smirk, cry, and think – just like it did for me.”

Arriving on March 3, One Thing At A Time will feature 36 new songs, including duets with Eric Church, HARDY and ERNEST.

In addition to Church, HARDY and ERNEST, Wallen’s sister Ashlyne will appear on the project, singing harmonies on the song titled “Outlook.”

“I grew up in church singing three-part harmonies with my two sisters. That’s how I learned to sing, so this was a full-circle moment for Ashlyne and me,” Wallen continued. 

The 36-track project follows the December release of Wallen’s three-song One Thing At A Time – Sampler, which included “One Thing At A Time,” “Days That End In Why,” and “Tennessee Fan.”

Also included on the much-anticipated project are several previously teased tunes such as “Ain’t That Some,” “Whiskey Friends,” “Keith Whitley,” “Me + All Your Reasons,” as well as his latest No. 1 hit, “You Proof,” and his current single, “Thought You Should Know.”

“There are 36 songs on this album because we just kept exploring with fresh lyrics, music and production ideas and these are the songs that felt right to me,” Wallen added. “It was a blast to create, and I was so grateful to be back in the studio to lay this out for my fans.”

The project’s album art holds family significance for Wallen as the photo was captured at the home of his late Mamaw (grandmother) in Sneedville, Tennessee. “My Mamaw Boots helped raise me. I had such a special bond with her, so I wanted to honor her with this new record,” Wallen said.

The album follows his record-breaking project, Dangerous: The Double Album, which spawned three chart-topping hits, including “Wasted On You,” “More Than My Hometown,” and “Sand in My Boots.”

Wallen will soon return to the road for his first-ever stadium tour, dubbed One Night At A Time World Tour.

The tour officially kicks off on Wednesday, March 15 in Auckland, NZ at the Spark Arena. The U.S. leg of the tour begins on April 14 with back-to-back nights at Milwaukee’s American Family Field.

Marking one of the largest tours of 2023 so far and the biggest tour of Wallen’s career, the 63-show trek will visit 30 stadiums, plus arenas, amphitheaters and festivals to fans across four countries and two continents. 

The trek will feature support from ERNEST and Bailey Zimmerman on all dates. HARDY and Parker McCollum will also appear on select dates.

After making his stadium debut with a record-breaking show at Globe Life Field in Texas, Wallen will visit several ballparks throughout North America, including New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium, Milwaukee’s American Family Field, Chicago’s Wrigley Field, Boston’s Fenway Park and more.

Produced by Live Nation, the North American leg of the trek will wrap up on October 7 at Tacoma Dome in Washington.

The One Night At A Time World Tour comes after Wallen’s highly successful Dangerous Tour, which included more than 50 sold-out shows. The record-breaking trek broke records at 30 venues across the U.S. during its 8-month-long run, including historic sellouts at 11 venues, while simultaneously breaking attendance records with stops at XFINITY Theatre, AmericanBank Center and Darien Lake Amphitheater.

In an effort to give back to those in need, Wallen will donate $3 of every ticket sold on the U.S. dates to the More Than My Hometown Foundation. Established in 2021, the foundation benefits causes near and dear to the superstar’s heart, including organizations such as Greater Good Music, Children Are People, the Salvation Army, and the National Museum of African American Music.
