“7 Summers” by Morgan Wallen Will Transport You Back in Time
Morgan Wallen released “7 Summers” on August 14th as a nostalgic reflection of a youthful summer love. Co-written with Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne, he sings to his summer love of “seven summers ago,” recounting the things they did together and wondering if she ever thinks of him. His lyrics are personal, yet relatable enough to make any listener wonder about a relationship from their past that didn’t quite work out. The decision for Wallen to release this single came about uniquely - he stated that he wasn’t sure originally if he would ever release the song. However, during the beginning months of quarantine, Wallen put out just the first verse and chorus on Instagram, and then it began to spread on TikTok as users put the sound to their videos. “Social media played a huge part in me releasing this song, especially this early.” Wallen said. The day he released the song, he captioned his Instagram photo simply: “This came out because of y’all. Do what you do.” The bittersweet song full of dreamy country vibes will transport you back in time, seven summers ago. It follows the release of his single “More Than My Hometown” back in April, and is climbing the charts as he is in the 114th week of his latest album, If I Know Me , at #1 on the Billboard charts. Listen to “7 Summers,” out everywhere now.
