After touring 10 countries this past summer with his guitar hero Brad Paisley, Morgan Evans is hitting stages in the states next year on Brett Young’s 5 Tour 3 2 1. The 17-date run will begin in Columbus, OH in March and will wrap at Los Angeles’ historic Greek Theatre in May. Tickets are on sale today HERE.
Evans recently played the biggest headlining show of his career at CMC Rocks QLD Festival in Australia, which sold out on the first day of sale, where he debuted his new single “Over For You” to a crowd of 25,000 (LISTEN HERE). The vulnerable song drew in strong support from fans and industry alike, leading to it impacting at country radio immediately. Evans released the accompanying music video last month (WATCH HERE). Directed by Peter John, the cinematic video was captured while Evans was on the road in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, and Rainbow Beach, Australia, in addition to Auckland, New Zealand.
Yesterday, “Over For You” received a nomination for Favorite Breakup Song for the Country Now Awards, who previously stated “Evans connects with viewers through his honest lyrics and raw sentiment.” Billboard also expressed love for the single, proclaiming “many of the best songs come from heartbreak, and this is absolutely one of Evans’ best releases to date.” People observed that Evans appeared to be “channeling his heartbreak into song,” with CMT noting Evans “places his heart on the line” in the raw ballad, stating it is “destined to tug at heartstrings worldwide.” Praise continues to roll in for the song by outlets such as Us Weekly, E!, Entertainment Tonight, The Bobby Bones Show, Taste of Country and more.
Evans will head back to his home country later this month to perform on Australia’s ABC New Year’s Eve Celebration in Sydney. The show will air in Australia at 8:30pm, and global audiences can tune in to ABC International to catch the performance.
