96.3 Star Country brings you exclusive access to upcoming artists! Join us for a mix and mingle event with Morgan Evans Wednesday, August 23 at Red Rock Saloon. See him perform new music and we've got your chance to meet him too!
Newly minted as one of their 10 New Country Artists You Need To Know, Rolling Stonepraised Evans’ first U.S. single “Kiss Somebody” for its “refreshingly realistic look at the foibles and promises of romance… [his] velvety voice rasping in all the right places.” Billboardalso delivered early support with an in-depth interview that highlighted the Australian-raised singer/songwriter’s influences and talents. Music Row awarded Evans its DisCovery Award, calling the new single “energetic and intense” and applauding the way “his vocal powers through.” Additionally, Sounds Like Nashville pointed out that with this single, Evans “proved that he wants to stick around for the long run…with a spontaneously sweet lyric that could make any listener smile… the country newcomer demonstrates promise within his loving lyrics and laidback spirit...”
The “upbeat, addictively optimistic track” (The Boot) was co-written by Evans with Chris DeStefano (Carrie Underwood, Brett Eldredge, Rascal Flatts) and Josh Osborne (Sam Hunt, Blake Shelton, Keith Urban), and will officially impact Country radio later this fall. Until then, Evans continues to showcase his expert musicianship on the road for select dates with Lee Brice and Old Dominion. With an engaging live show built around a loop pedal setup, “Evans can command a stage solo, with plenty of charm and a showman's flair that would make Urban proud” (Rolling Stone).
