Craig Morgan Is Set To Release A Brand New Single, “More Truck Than Cars.” Craig Morgan will release his latest single, “More Trucks Than Cars,” from his recent album This Ole Boy in upcoming days. Written by Morgan with Phil O’Donnell and Craig Wiseman, the song is an anthem for the southern lifestyle, depicted in stars that light the night sky, biscuits, grits and gravy, ‘Ole Glory’ flying high and a landscape where you’ll sooner spot a truck before you see a car. And Morgan can wholeheartedly relate to his lyric “meanwhile back in Tennessee we’re raising our babies and our own green beans.” Craig Morgan’s “More Trucks Than Cars” is available today via PlayMPE for airplay on country radio with an August 27 impact date. The song is equally relatable to metropolitan areas of the U.S. where there is no shortage of hard-working Americans and a touch of the southern lifestyle is a hot commodity. While in New York earlier this year, Morgan was surprised at the number of trucks he spotted amongst the sea of yellow cabs in Manhattan.
