Story Behind the Song: Morgan Wallen, ‘Chasin’ You’
Morgan Wallen's "Chasin' You" is a song about not giving up on finding the perfect partner, instead choosing to chase them down -- or at least continue to keep them in your memory, even when with someone else.
"Chasing you like a shot of whiskey / Burning going down, burning going down / Chasing you like those goodbye taillights / Headed west to anywhere out of this nowhere town," Morgan sings in the song's chorus. "Chasing that freedom, chasing that feeling that got gone too soon / Chasing that you and me I only see in my rearview / Yeah I'm laying here tonight holding someone new / Still chasing you, still chasing you."
"Chasin' You" was written by Wallen with Craig Wiseman and Jamie Moore; it's from his debut album, If I Know Me, which also includes his certified-platinum single "Up Down," featuring Florida Georgia Line. Read on for the story behind "Chasin' You," as told by Wallen himself.
I originally moved to Nashville in 2015, at the end of 2015, and I wrote that song pretty soon after moving there.
It's just a song that I wrote, just what I was going through, really.
It's always been special to me since the day that we wrote it, and I'm glad it's finally getting the chance to be a single.
