Morgan Wallen shared a demo of a rowdy new unreleased country song.
On Saturday, June 5, the country superstar shared a demo clip of an unreleased track in his Instagram stories while driving home from North Carolina with his friend Andrew Green. Throughout the banjo-infused track, Wallen pays tribute to the country lifestyle by detailing everything that makes him a “country boy.”
“Long drive going thru old demos… this one kinda got me fired up,” the East Tennessee native captioned the unreleased demo song.
“Burn a few down on the back porch / a lot of shift gears in my dashboard / can’t get it on my own, won’t ask for it / make it happen with my own two hands / yeah, I like my boots a little swampy / yeah, I like my bass a little funky / yeah, I like my girls a little country / yeah it’s just the way I am / I ain’t ashamed of how I was raised / and I don’t see no need to change / you can take the boy out of the country / take the beer out of his hand / you can spend all kind of money / to sophisticated man / you can take him out his blue jeans / throw away his camo hat / but you know you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, it’s just as simple as that / you can take the boy out of the country / you can take the boy out of the country / you can take the boy out of the country but that country’s still in your boy / still in your boy,” Wallen sings in the clip shared to his Instagram stories.

This unreleased new song snippet comes just weeks after he shared a performance of a brand new song entitled “Thought You Should Know,” which came just days after he returned to the stage for the first time since early February, popping up at Kid Rock’s Big Honky Tonk & Steakhouse on Wednesday evening (May 19). His surprise appearance included performances of his chart-topping single, “Whiskey Glasses,” and the fan-favorites “Sand In My Boots” and “Wasted On You” from his multi-week No.1 album, Dangerous: The Double Album.
The East Tennessee native celebrated his 28th birthday on May 13 and marked the occasion with a social media post thanking his sister, Ashlyne, and friend, Andrew, for sticking by him during a tumultuous year.
“27 brought a lot of the best and the worst times of my life,” he wrote. “These 2 didn’t flinch. Glad to see 28.”
Wallen previously issued a handwritten letter to fans offering an update about his time away from the public eye, sharing that he’s “really worked on myself” throughout the past few months.
“Not only has this time revealed to me the ways in which I want to improve, but it’s also reminded me that I am still very proud of who I am and the man I am becoming,” he wrote.
Wallen has cancelled all upcoming tour dates but promised fans, “you’ll be seeing me sooner than later.”
