‘Joke’s on Alabama’: Wallen’s ‘Tennessee Fan’ blitzes Tide

As if losing to Tennessee for the first time in 15 years wasn’t bad enough for Alabama fans, country music star Morgan Wallen decided to pile on with a new track aimed at the Tide.

While a demo to his new track “Tennessee Fan” was introduced shortly after the Volunteers defeated Bama in October, Wallen has officially released the single as part of a “sampler pack” of new music.

The song opens with Wallen, a native of Sneedville, Tenn., saying Alabama “beat(s) us every damn year.” After Bama wins yet another game against the Vols, the song has Wallen heading to a Tuscaloosa bar where he meets “a girl with a houndstooth print of her (sorority) chapter on her shirt.”

He ends up bringing the Tide fan “back with me across the Vol state line.”

Chorus as follows:

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

Wallen dropped a lyric video for his fans, which features former Alabama defensive back Trevon Diggs taking a fumble 99 yards for a touchdown in the 2019 matchup. As the song progresses in favor of Tennessee, the video transitions to the final moments of this year’s game.

Listen:

In October 2020, Wallen was disinvited to perform on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” after videos surfaced of him partying in Tuscaloosa, in violation of COVID-19 restrictions.

The “Whiskey Glasses” singer would later be invited once more to “SNL,” where he performed a skit making fun of his non-adherence to pandemic protocols.
