Morgan Evans | Artist of the Month
Most country fans know Morgan Evans as the lucky guy who now calls Kelsea Ballerini his wife. But did you know Morgan has been performing and in the music industry long before he made Kelsea his bride? We chose Morgan Evans as our Country Clones Artist of the Month because we wanted to find out more about this rising star and share it with y’all.
Born and raised in Australia, Morgan Evans began his music career more than a decade ago. At age 13, he formed a band where he honed his skills to become an artist. During this time, Morgan experienced his first taste of success when they won the Telstra Road to Tamworth — a competition aimed at giving exposure to independent and unsigned country music artists in Australia. Similar to American Idol, the victory earned him the chance to visit Nashville and record a single. He later went on to sign his first record deal the Australian branch of Warner Music, where he released his first single.
Morgan hit the road and gained a large following in Australia. He earned chart-topping success and Country Music Channel (Australia’s version of Country Music Television) awards year after year. Morgan decided he needed to be in Music City to take his country music career to the next level and he arrived in Nashville in 2015. Since moving to the States, Morgan has worked tirelessly to gain an American following. In July 2017, Morgan released “Kiss Somebody,” and has seen it steadily climb the country charts… and honestly, we’ve got it on repeat – it’s SO good!
We can’t wait to catch him on tour this summer with Chris Young and Kane Brown! He so effortlessly belts out incredible, passionate songs, and we can’t get enough of Morgan Evans! We can’t wait to watch this rising star come into his own and have a successful career worldwide!
