Here’s another post-breakup song by Wallen, which finds him wondering if his former lover thinks of him whenever she is with her new man. He can’t help but wish that she still has feelings for him.
6. One Thing At A Time by Morgan Wallen
The title track to his new album is symbolic of a project that naturally mixes genres. In this heartbreak ballad, Wallen finds himself in one last desperate attempt to save his relationship.

7. Thank God by Kane Brown With Katelyn Brown

8. Going, Going, Gone by Luke Combs
This heartbreak song got Luke Combs singing about falling in love with a girl who decided to follow her own path. He knows there’s no way for him to stop her, and it won’t be long before she’s gone.

13. Ain’t That Some by Morgan Wallen
This rap-influenced country track by Morgan Wallen tips one’s hat to the Southern way of life by listing country stereotypes. It even includes jargon southerners use while fishing – such as a honey hole, a specific spot in a body of water perfect for catching fish.
14. Wait In The Truck by HARDY, Featuring Lainey Wilson
HARDY joined forces with Lainey Wilson for a rare murder ballad in the country’s modern era. The intense duet finds the two singers recounting a story of domestic violence and revenge taken by killing the abuser.
