Leave it to John Morgan to make an anthem for all the redneck boys out there.
The No. 1 hit songwriter — who is most known for writing songs for country superstar and mentor Jason Aldean — unleashes his rugged country boy roots in his unapologetic new heater “Sorry Not Sorry,” which is available on all streaming platforms today (March 3).
Produced by Aldean, along with long-time bandmates and No. 1 hit songwriters Kurt Allison and Tully Kennedy, John wrote the insanely catchy track with Justin Wilson, Rodney Clawson and Willy Bundy.
When speaking with Celeb Secrets Country reporter Juliet Schroder, Morgan opened up about the track’s creative process, mentioning that the song is meant to embrace who you truly are regardless of what other people have to say about it.
“When I was growing up, there was always that group of redneck boys that they didn’t know any better and sometimes got made fun of. And I think the song really pulls from that ‘like, man, who cares?’ feeling,” he said.
“I just am what I am. Obviously I value people’s opinion about myself, but at the end of the day, I I’m only gonna change so much for you, so hopefully people can connect with that and kind of feel that in the song.”
“Sorry Not Sorry” is just a taste of what people can expect from the rising country star, as he is set to make his Grand Ole Opry debut on May 19th while promising that a “cool little project” is on the horizon for 2023.
Calling the Opry appearance “a dream come true,” Morgan is excited for the milestone opportunity and can’t wait for people to hear his music live and in-person on the famed stage.
“I have songwriter goals and, and artist goals and this is definitely one that kind of meets both of those. It’s definitely going to be a cool moment for me because I’ve dreamed about it for a long time,” he said.
“We’re working on a cool little project that we’ll hopefully be sharing more information about soon. I’ve had time over the last couple years to be able to write a bunch of songs, so we’ve got a lot to choose from — which is a good thing. My goal for this next project is to showcase a little bit of my roots.”
