Megan Moroney has shown her cards through an emotional journey of heartbreak and healing and now she’s ready to move past her LUCKY era with the introduction of her newest song, “No Caller ID.”

The phone may be ringing but this songstress is ignoring the toxic intentions behind the late-night “No Caller ID” glaring back at her because she’s “two months deep in therapy” and has just started to get back on her feet with a “stand-up guy,” as she admits in the opening lines of the ballad. 

Moroney continues to depict a story of growth after experiencing a downfall of heartbreak with an ex who continues to rear his head just when things are looking up. Her captivating vocals and smooth instrumentals elevate the sincerity of the message, which encourages listeners to say goodbye to anyone who doesn’t have the best intentions in mind.

“Here you come again and there you go / No coincidence, you always know / When I’m moving on you move back in / With a half-ass sorry and ‘how you been’ / Why do you do it? / Do you just hate losing? / Here you come again, who could it be? / It’s 3 am no caller ID,” she sings on the chorus. 

Fans Begged Her To Release The Song

Out Friday (Jan. 19), the new tune was co-written by the “Tennessee Orange” singer with Jessi Alexandar, Connie Harrington, and Jessie Jo Dillon and produced by Kristian Bush. Fans first got a taste of “No Caller ID” through teasers on social media and live deliveries during Moroney’s recent performances. 

In the snippets she teased before the official drop, Moroney was seen wearing a baby blue silk dress, a dainty hair bow, stylish cowboy boots, and glamorous makeup while posing for the cover art. The blue color scheme represents the sadness that comes with having her healing journey disrupted by someone who should have stayed in the past. 

“I played this song on THE LUCKY TOUR last fall, and I could tell my fans wanted me to release it,” Moroney shared in a statement. “It feels like this song has helped my fans as much as it has helped me. By the end, there is a lot of strength and growth that I’m proud of. I am really excited for this one!”

Embarking On A New Musical Era

This marks another look into the new chapter for the Georgia native following the release of her debut album, LUCKY, which made an electrifying impact on May 5 via Sony Music Nashville/Columbia Records. Through songs like “Girl in the Mirror,” “Traitor Joe,” “Tennessee Orange,” her current single, “I’m Not Pretty,” and more, the full-length project gives an intimate look into all the love, loss, success and low points that Moroney has crossed paths with throughout her mid-twenties.

She kicked off this fresh era with her first release of 2024, a cover of “What Are You Listening To?” Penned by country hitmaker Chris Stapleton and Lee Thomas Miller,” the tender tune is also on par with Moroney’s growing discography of relatable lyrics and personal experiences.

Moroney adds her touch of dreamy vocals to the story of “What Are You Listening To?” which finds the main character thinking about that person who is no longer in their life.

“What are you listening to? / Is it a cover band in some college town bar? / Where it’s na-na-na’s and air guitars / And is it something to get you through? / Just a sad song playing on the radio station / Tears still fallin’ and hearts still breakin’ / ‘Cause you’re hanging on / Or is it a love song about someone new? / What are you listening to?” she sings. 

Touring With Kenny Chesney

With even more music expected to be on the way, Megan Moroney is gearing up to join Kenny Chesney on the road for the Sun Goes Down 2024 Tour. Presented by Blue Chair Bay® Rum, the trek is slated to open April 20, 2024, at Tampa’s Raymond James Stadium and continue through August. Also joining Moroney on this trek are Uncle Kracker and multiple GRAMMY-winning Zac Brown Band.
