Morgan Wallen Sees Past Heartbreak With ‘Whiskey Glasses’ [Listen]
Morgan Wallen knows heartbreak as a sort of blunt force trauma in "Whiskey Glasses," a mid-tempo spin on an idea so simple we can't believe there's not another hit like it on record.
Maybe another country singer has spoken of needing to look through "whiskey glasses" to get over a jilting lover. There's nothing pretty about this breakup. She's moved on, he hasn't, and the idea that she's twisted in passion with her new man is frying the singer's nerves. There's only one known cure.
It's an old-school country theme that for the most part stays true to great '80s or '90s traditions. At the chorus, Wallen adds backing vocals in the style of Florida Georgia Line. This brings a subtle pop shine to a song that's as easy of a radio hit as they come.
Did You Know?: There ain't no shame in Morgan Wallen's mullet game. Here's proof.

Mogan Wallen's "Whisky Glasses" Lyrics:
Pour me, pour me another drink / 'Cause I don't wanna feel a thing / No more, hell no / I just want to sip 'til the pain wears off / Pour me, pour me another round / Line 'em up and knock 'em down / Two more let's go / 'Cause I ain't ever hurt like this before / Don't wanna think about her / Wear a ring without her / Don't wanna hit the karaoke bar, can't sing without her / So make them drinks strong / 'Cause brother she's gone / And if I'm ever gonna move on.
I'ma need some whiskey glasses / 'Cause I don't wanna see the truth / She's probably making out on the couch right now with someone new / Yeah, I'ma need some whiskey glasses / If I'm gonna make it through / If I'ma be single / I'ma need a double shot of that heartbreak proof / And see the world through whiskey glasses / See the world through whiskey glasses.
Last call, I swear this will be my last call / I ain't drunk dialing no more at 3AM / Mr. Bartender hit me again.
Line 'em up, line ‘em up, line ‘em up, line ‘em up / Knock ‘em back, knock ‘em back, knock ‘em back, knock ‘em back / Fill 'em up, fill ‘em up, fill ‘em up, fill ‘em up / 'Cause if she ain't ever coming back.
