Morgan Evans shares his journey to the sequel after his separation from Kelsea Ballerini on the new song “On My Own Again”. Morgan released the track on March 17 as a follow-up to his original breakup song, “Over For You,” which he debuted live in September 2022. On the new track, Morgan sings about learning to be alone again after his nearly five-year marriage to Kelsea. “The images in my head are all of her that I take with me,” he sings in the first verse. “I left the rest in this house. Tomorrow when she wakes up, I wonder if she’ll miss me. This time, I’m not hanging around to find out.

In the second verse, Morgan considers all the places he could go after the breakup, from New York to California or Mexico. “I know I might feel lonely walking out of here,” he admits. “But as long as the windshield is bigger than the rearview mirror.” On deck, he concludes: “Young and wild and free, riding like the wind, learning to be alone again.

Kelsea filed for divorce from Morgan in August, just weeks before her album was released Subject to change. While the record touched on marriage-related issues, it wasn’t until Kelsea released her six-song EP, Roll up the welcome mat, in February that she really delved into how she felt about the breakup. In a track from the EP, Kelsea slammed Morgan for claiming to be “blindsided” by her divorce filing. She referenced their difference of opinions on starting a family, as well as their years of therapy, throughout the case.

The EP was Kelsea’s response to “Over For You”, which Morgan recorded and released after receiving an overwhelming fan reaction to her live performance. The heartbreaking ballad shows Morgan wondering when the relationship was “over” for Kelsea and when she stopped loving him. The first track of Roll up the welcome mat“Mountain With A View”, features Kelsea singing, “I think that’s when it’s over for me”, which is a direct use of Morgan’s own lyrics.

In “Over For You”, Morgan also sings, “I would have searched the whole world for you, taken a flight in the night to be that shoulder for you.” Kelsea directly called out these lyrics when she performed “Blindside” on Saturday Night Live earlier this month, adding the lyrics: “Would you have searched the whole world? Yeah, sure, okay. She also opened up about the divorce in an interview on the call her daddy podcast and insisted that Morgan made no effort to fly to see her when they were in different cities due to work schedules. Kelsea claimed that she was the only one pushing for the wedding, which she no longer agrees with.

Now the country star has moved on with chase stokes, whom she met while slipping into her DMs in December. The couple’s relationship first went public in January, and recently they seem to have gotten much more serious. Chase was in New York with Kelsea for her SNL concert, and they were photographed walking the streets of the Big Apple hand in hand. He also attended some of his recent concerts.
