FEATURING
THE VIBRANT NEW ANTHEM ‘YOUNG AGAIN’
+
TOP 5 US SINGLE ‘KISS SOMEBODY’
WHICH CONTINUES CLIMBING COUNTRY CHARTS

Rising star Morgan Evans made a stop at Tootsie’s on Nashville’s historic Broadway last night to reveal the surprise release of his self-titled EP, out now. In the spirit of the EP’s brand new, live-in-the-moment track, ‘Young Again’, Evans treated fans to an impromptu round of shots to celebrate the moment.

Bringing it full circle, Tootsie’s was the Australia native’s first stop when he visited Nashville for the first time 10 years ago – dropping his bags and arriving on Broadway less than two hours after his plane landed.

“More and more when I experience big life and career moments, they remind me of all the little ones that happened before and made them possible”, Evans told The Tennessean. “I remember that moment as one of the defining ones, thinking, ‘This is the greatest city on Earth.’”

‘Young Again’ has quickly become a fan-favorite at Evans’ dynamic, one-of-a-kind live show where he commands the stage solo with his signature loop pedal. A fun party anthem that throws caution to the wind, the song couples carefree sing-along lyrics with a driving beat.

Produced by Chris DeStefano, the EP is a glimpse at Evans’ Warner Music Nashville / Warner Bros. Records full-length debut album, due out this autumn. The talented singer/songwriter co-penned each track on the EP and the forthcoming album.

Previous single ‘Day Drunk’ kicks off the EP,  followed by the stirring and anthemic ‘American’ alongside ‘I Do’, which Billboard acclaimed as a “breezy love song”. The top 5 US debut single ‘Kiss Somebody’ and the brand new track ‘Young Again’ round out the release.

Morgan will very shortly take to the stage for the 12th annual ACM Honors at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium and then return home to Australia for a string of SOLD-OUT headline shows. He’ll also hit the road again with Chris Young in September as a special guest on the Losing Sleep World Tour 2018.

REVEALS PERSONAL VIDEO FOR
‘DAY DRUNK’
FILMED ON VACATION IN HAWAII

WATCH HERE

Red-hot Warner Music Nashville up-and-comer Morgan Evans is giving fans a glimpse into paradise with a brand new music video for ‘Day Drunk’. The clip is available today and premiered exclusively on ETonline.com.

Featuring the singer-songwriter, the self-shot music video follows Evans on a Hawaiian adventure. Surfing and soaking up the sun, Evans cruises the scenic island to the tune of the upbeat summer jam with his wife, Kelsea Ballerini.

“I’ve never been the drinking song guy, but this song came from a real place and is really more about spending a day with your person than it is about just going getting drunk,” Evans tells ET. “There’s a reason why I love it so much and feel like I can sing it.”

Upon release, ‘Day Drunk’ received a huge response across streaming platforms, being added straight onto Spotify’s New Music Friday Canada, Australia and New Zealand as well as the New Pop Sounds and All About Country playlists. It’s also reached #1 on the Australian iTunes Country Chart and went Top 10 on the iTunes Country Charts in eight further territories.

It follows the debut single ‘Kiss Somebody’ which is currently Top 10-and-climbing at Country radio and skyrocketed into Spotify’s Global Viral 50 chart. With 41million+ on-demand streams, the smash hit is the first look at his forthcoming Warner Music Nashville / Warner Bros. Records full-length debut album.

A bona fide Country force in Australia, Evans is forging a path as one of the genre’s hottest up-and-coming stars having garnered countless awards and honors, most recently claiming Country Work of the Year for ‘Kiss Somebody’ at the 2018 APRA Music Awards, and receiving praise from the likes of Rolling Stone who declared him “a savvy performer with strong songwriting chops”. He has also been named one to watch for 2018 by CMT, SiriusXM, Billboard, Amazon Music, Google Play, Sounds Like Nashville, Pandora and more.

After sharing the bill with global superstar Taylor Swift, Country hit-maker Cole Swindell, James Blunt and more A-list names as well as returning to the UK for a third time to play at this year’s C2C festival in both London and Glasgow, Evans will headline select dates throughout the summer and will featured as a special guest on Chris Young’s Losing Sleep World Tour this September.

His highly anticipated debut album is in production, with additional details to be revealed soon.

THE US HIT SINGLE ‘KISS SOMEBODY’

JOINS JAMES BLUNT ON HIS AUSTRALIAN TOUR

Following the release of his single ‘Kiss Somebody’ and new track ‘I Do’, Australian-born country star Morgan Evans will be returning to the UK next month to perform at this year’s Country 2 Country Festival in London and Glasgow.

“I visited the UK for the first time last year and just fell in love with the country and its music fans,” says Evans. “There’s a depth of passion for music there unlike anywhere else. C2C 2018 will be my third visit and I couldn’t be more stoked to return to London and Glasgow.”

Already a bona-fide music sensation in his native Australia, and highly acclaimed by the likes of Rolling Stone and Billboard in the US – both of whom have tipped him for success in 2018 – his new music is shaped by a love of artists like Ed Sheeran and Keith Urban, alongside many other Nashville greats where he now resides, having signed a global record deal with Warner Music Nashville / Warner Bros. Records.

Last year Evans released his debut US single ‘Kiss Somebody’, which he wrote with Chris DeStefano and Josh Osborne. The track has become a major radio hit in multiple countries and debuted on Spotify’s Viral Charts at #15 in the US and #26 globally, with over 19 million streams to date.

The visually impressive, one-of-a-kind accompanying video was released in December 2017 and features a nearly single-shot film in extreme slow-motion.

His newest track ‘I Do’, pays homage to loved ones and was inspired by his now wife and fellow country artist Kelsea Ballerini. As a result of these two tracks, Evans has made a huge splash in the US and in addition to Rolling Stone’s praise for his “velvety voice rasping in all the right places” he has been crowned as one of CMT’s #18for2018 artists.

The upcoming performances at C2C mark his third time back on UK soil after playing a run of headline dates last June, before returning for his acclaimed visit here in October. He’s also set to join James Blunt for three landmark shows in Australia, before heading back to the US for shows in April with Chris Young and Kane Brown.
