Country music loves the Tennessee Volunteers, and there’s another song out about them. Star artist Morgan Wallen recently released “Tennessee Fan.”

The song is about a girl who is an Alabama fan he met with a “houndstooth print of her chapter on her shirt.”

[Verse 1]
They beat us every damn year
It’s been a minute since we pulled out a win
I loaded the truck down with beer
Drove down to watch ’em do it again
And they did so we went to the bar right after
Met a girl with a houndstooth print of her chapter on her shirt
And it turned into talkin’ all night
She came back with me across the Vol’ state line

Guess the joke’s on Alabama
‘Cause they lost big this time
I got the number one pick, blonde hair, red lips
Brought her over to the other side
A little deep south Delta Gamma
Done found a Smoky Mountain man
Yeah, she was raised Roll Tide ’til the day she died
But ever since that night, she’s been a Tennessee fan

[Verse 2]
She likes ridin’ on them windin’ roads
The smell of sweet pine in the air
I took her about as high as you could go, huh
You can still see the Tuscaloosa from there
And all them girls back home say, “How could you love him?”
All them boys probably hate me for takin’ her from ’em
Lord knows her mom and daddy’s jaw would drop
If they heard her singin’ every word of “Rocky Top”

It’s part of a three-song release that includes “One Thing at a Time,” “Tennessee Fan,” and “Days That End in Why” ahead of his next tour.

“I’m not quite done making this new album, so I’m going to keep making it through the holiday break and early January to chase this inspiration,” Wallen said in a statement. “I promise I won’t wait too long to reveal the album details. To hold you over, I’m dropping three new songs today as a sampler of what I’ve been working on. Can’t wait to take it one night at a time in 2023.”
