Southern Halo’s much-anticipated, dream-inspired concept album, JUST LIKE IN THE MOVIES, premiered globally last week on Taste of Country and is available now from iTunes. The group’s current single, the feel-good sing-along “Anything Is Possible,” is moving up the Billboard Indicator and MusicRow charts.
The popular trio has promoted JUST LIKE IN THE MOVIES extensively, traversing 19 states, traveling over 12,000 miles and visiting 42 radio stations since February. The Mississippi natives performed for three weeks on the High School Nation Spring Tour, and live at the stations they visited, including KIX 101.1 Radio, KBOE Radio and KTTS Radio. The group also stopped by WDVM-TV in Hagerstown, MD for some screen time before headlining iHeartRadio affiliate WFRE’s Random Act of Country series.
The new disc features 10 songs written or co-written by the trio’s lead vocalist Natalia and four titles from Music City’s hottest tunesmiths. Produced by SESAC’s 2012 Writer of the Year Catt Gravitt (Kelly Clarkson, Jake Owen) and Gerald O’Brien (Martina McBride, Trace Adkins), the album mirrors the emotional and musical growth of Natalia, Hannah and Christina Morris, the three sisters who form SOUTHERN HALO.

ABOUT SOUTHERN HALO
Natalia (principal songwriter, guitarist, lead vocalist), Christina (drums) and Hannah (bass) are SOUTHERN HALO. Since their hypnotically-upbeat Country radio debut, “Little White Dress,” caught the attention of U.S. radio and press (spending eight weeks at #1 on the International Hotdisc Chart) this sibling trio has broken down doors and shattered glass ceilings. Their sophomore single, “Rewind,” was a U.S. Top 40 MusicRow CountryBreakout™ Chart hit that also held the #1 spot on the Hotdisc Chart for two weeks. The group’s third single, “Living Like That,” quickly found success of its own. Those three singles, from the group’s previous CD, SOUTHERN HALO (2015), further bolstered the trio’s profile. It’s been a fast ride to the big stage for these Delta darlings. Since landing in the National Finals of the 2014 Texaco Country Showdown as the youngest competitors ever, the band has opened for Maren Morris, Deana Carter, Love and Theft, Brantley Gilbert, Eric Paslay, Tyler Farr, Parmalee, Old Dominion, American Young, Blues immortal B.B. King and legendary chanteuse Dionne Warwick, among many others. The Cleveland, Mississippi natives have performed at the CMA Music Festival, at a pre-show on the rooftop terrace of the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles and launched Townsquare Media’s Say It With Pepsi Concert Series. When they are not touring, the Morris sisters now call Nashville home.
