Morgan Wallen’s “Wasted On You” is off to a running start at country radio, earning the title of the most-added song this week with 65 total adds and 82 adds overall.

The East Tennessee native’s new whiskey-soaked anthem officially impacted the country radio airwaves on Monday (March 7), marking the fourth radio single from his newly-crowned ACM Album of the Year, Dangerous: The Double Album (following “Sand In My Boots,” “7 Summers” and “More Than My Hometown”).

Co-written by Wallen alongside Ryan Vojtesak, Ernest K. Smith and Josh Thompson, “Wasted On You” finds Wallen crooning over the downfall of a relationship while reflecting on everything he’s “wasted” on his ex. He also admits to turning to a bottle of bourbon to help ease the pain. 

The songwriters found a clever way to use the term wasted in multiple ways as Wallen admits he’s wasted time, money and miles on his past lover, while also getting wasted to drown out the memories.

“All of this time and all of this money/ All of the these sorries I don’t owe you honey/ All of these miles on this Chevy, and prayers in a pew/ All them days I spent, wasted on you/ Wasted on you,” he sings on the chorus.

Wallen first debuted “Wasted On You” in January 2021 as part of “The Dangerous Sessions,” an acoustic series leading up to the much-anticipated release of his album.

The track became an immediate fan favorite and on November 23, 2021, less than 12 months after its initial release, the song was certified 2x Platinum by the RIAA for certified units (sales and stream equivalents) of 2 million.

“Wasted On You” follows his fifth chart-topping hit, “Sand In My Boots,” which went No. 1 in late February of 2022.

Wallen is currently in the midst of his sold-out headlining trek, The Dangerous Tour, which runs through October.
