Rising star Morgan Evans made a stop at Tootsie’s on Nashville’s historic Broadway last night to reveal the surprise release of his self-titled EP, out now. In the spirit of the EP’s brand new, live-in-the-moment track, ‘Young Again’, Evans treated fans to an impromptu round of shots to celebrate the moment.
Bringing it full circle, Tootsie’s was the Australia native’s first stop when he visited Nashville for the first time 10 years ago – dropping his bags and arriving on Broadway less than two hours after his plane landed.
“More and more when I experience big life and career moments, they remind me of all the little ones that happened before and made them possible”, Evans told The Tennessean. “I remember that moment as one of the defining ones, thinking, ‘This is the greatest city on Earth.’”
‘Young Again’ has quickly become a fan-favourite at Evans’ dynamic, one-of-a-kind live show where he commands the stage solo with his signature loop pedal. A fun party anthem that throws caution to the wind, the song couples carefree sing-along lyrics with a driving beat.
Produced by Chris DeStefano, the EP is a glimpse at Evans’ Warner Music Nashville / Warner Bros. Records full-length debut album, due out this autumn. The talented singer/songwriter co-penned each track on the EP and the forthcoming album.
Previous single ‘Day Drunk’ kicks off the EP, followed by the stirring and anthemic ‘American’ alongside ‘I Do’, which Billboard acclaimed as a “breezy love song”. The top 5 US debut single ‘Kiss Somebody’ and the brand new track ‘Young Again’ round out the release.
Morgan will very shortly take to the stage for the 12th annual ACM Honors at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium and then return home to Australia for a string of SOLD-OUT headline shows. He’ll also hit the road again with Chris Young in September as a special guest on the Losing Sleep World Tour 2018.
