For Australian-born country phenom Morgan Evans, it’s never been more apparent than in this last year that love – both love for music and love for others – is all about connection. He explores how the littlest details can spark the greatest connection in his brand new single, “Love Is Real” (LISTEN HERE). The single, co-penned alongside Jordan Reynolds and Parker Welling, embraces the simple but beautiful moments that stitch life, and people, together.
Evans teamed up with award-winning producer Dann Huff to set the seize-the-day lyricism and romantic positivity to thumping guitar and a heart-pumping beat. He also chose, for his first release in nearly two years, to lean into his community and collaborate, setting aside his signature pedal loop for an immersive new experience. “Whenever I go into a studio and the band starts playing, and a song goes from this acoustic idea to a full record basically straight away… that’s the closest to magic I think I’ve ever been around,” Evans said of the recording process.
The talented entertainer will bring a special sense of connection to fans later this summer when he joins labelmate Brett Eldredge on his Good Day 2021 Tour. Known for taking the stage solo, engaging the audience with instrumental mastery and a pedal loop, Evans will now be joined by a full live band for the first time since he moved to America. “At the end of the world tour in 2019, I decided it was time,” he said. “I missed the comradery, I missed the noise, I missed the shared experiences of having a band.” Now, with months of rehearsal under his belt, Evans is more ready than ever to bring the new energy to stages across the globe.
When not in the recording studio or prepping for the upcoming tour, Evans is hosting his Country Wide Radio show on Apple Music. The singer / songwriter shares his global perspective on country music, showcasing performers from all over the world. A one-of-a-kind performer himself, Evans has forged a path as one of the genre’s most promising up-and-coming stars. He was named one of Country Radio Seminar’s elite 2020 New Faces of Country Music. With more than 585 million global career streams, he topped the charts with his debut single “Kiss Somebody” and spent 25 weeks in the coveted No.1 spot in Australia with fan favorite track “Day Drunk.” Both hail from his critically lauded debut album Things That We Drink To, which took home the award for Best Country Album at the ARIA Music Awards in Australia.
