Today, Country phenomenon Megan Moroney premieres her brand-new song “No Caller ID” — the very first glimpse at the hugely anticipated next chapter for the Sony Music Nashville/Columbia Records star. Kicking off what’s sure to be an unstoppable year, the post-breakup ballad is Moroney’s first new music since her massively acclaimed debut album LUCKY. Go here to listen to “No Caller ID” now.
Written by Moroney, Jessi Alexander, Connie Harrington, and Jessie Jo Dillon, “No Caller ID” further reveals the Georgia-bred artist’s gift for capturing the most nuanced emotions with both intimacy and impact — a talent that recently landed LUCKY on best-of-the-year lists from major outlets like The New York Times and Rolling Stone. To that end, “No Caller ID” tells the all-too-relatable tale of receiving a late-night phone call from an ex you’re trying your best to forget. After shedding light on everything she’s been through (“I’m two months deep in therapy/Been finally getting sleep/My friends quit checking up on me/’Cause I’m back on my feet”), Moroney builds to a gut-punching chorus delivered with aching intensity (“Here you come again and there you go/No coincidence, you always know/When I’m moving on, you move back in/With a half-ass ‘Sorry, how you been?’”). Although she channels everything from longing to frustration to the pain of self-betrayal (“Don’t you get tired of hurting me?/I’m tired of hurting me”), Moroney achieves a quiet sense of triumph in the song’s final moments, briefly turning “No Caller ID” into an anthem of self-protection.
Produced by Moroney’s frequent collaborator Kristian Bush (a multi-award-winning artist/songwriter/producer), “No Caller ID” sets her storytelling to an understated yet powerful sound graced with lush mandolin, delicate but hard-hitting live drums, and endlessly spellbinding layers of electric, acoustic, and steel guitar. While much of the song centers on a stunningly tender vocal performance from Moroney, “No Caller ID” reaches a glorious and soaring peak at the bridge thanks in part to some exhilarating guitar work from Benji Shanks and Justin Schipper.
“No Caller ID” arrives just weeks after Moroney took the stage for CBS’s New Year’s Eve Live: Nashville’s Big Bash. Broadcasting from The Stage on Broadway, the “emo cowgirl” tore through a crowd-thrilling rendition of her RIAA 2X PLATINUM hit single “Tennessee Orange.” As she played a custom Gibson guitar bedazzled with over 3,000 rhinestones, the awestruck audience sang along to every word of Moroney’s No. 1 Country radio smash. Check out the performance here, and go here to read an exclusive PopCulture.com interview in which Moroney reflects on 2023 and all its incredible highlights.
Cementing her status as a veritable hitmaker, Moroney currently has two songs in the Top 30 on Country radio: “I’m Not Pretty” (the magnetic opening track to LUCKY) and “Can’t Break Up Now” (her recent collaboration with Old Dominion). Hailed by Billboard as a “cheeky, defiant clapback,” “I’m Not Pretty” first hit the Country radio airwaves back in August, the same week she premiered its wildly clever video (co-directed herself by Moroney herself) — check it out here.
Moroney’s ever-growing legion of fans may recognize “No Caller ID” from her sold-out THE LUCKY TOUR — a national headline run with stops at major cities and iconic venues coast-to-coast. This spring and summer, Moroney will take the stage at stadiums across the country as support for Kenny Chesney’s SUN DOWN 2024 TOUR.
