Warner Music Nashville recording artist Morgan Evans is channeling his childhood this Christmas, opting for a bouncing acoustic guitar and warm keys on his version of Mariah Carey classic “All I Want For Christmas Is You” (listen HERE).
“I honestly can’t think of a song that consistently makes me feel as good as ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ makes me feel,” Evans said. “In my version, I wanted to make it feel like Christmas felt to me growing up in Australia – it was at the beach, it was catching up with friends, it was all the family coming back to the hometown and catching up around a bonfire. It was really laid back, and I think after this year we could all use a little more ‘laid back’ in our lives.”
When not putting his signature touch on holiday favorites, Evans is occupied with his Country Wide Radio show on Apple Music. The singer / songwriter brings shares his global perspective on country music every other week, showcasing performers from all over the world. Past guests include American hit-makers Chris Young and Kip Moore as well as Australian stars The McClymonts and The Wolfe Brothers. Tune in HERE.
Earlier this year Evans was named one of Country Radio Seminar’s elite New Faces of Country Music, he has accumulated more than 450 million career streams globally with his diverse catalog, He topped the charts with his debut single “Kiss Somebody” and spent 25 weeks in the coveted No.1 spot in Australia with “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.
