DEBUT SINGLE “KISS SOMEBODY” CONTINUES TO RACE UP THE COUNTRY RADIO AIRPLAY CHARTS
Warner Music Nashville red-hot up-and-comer MORGAN EVANS is set to crisscross the country on the 10 IN 10 TOUR, performing in 10 cities in 10 days. The tour, which includes headlining shows and festival appearances, kicks off in Los Angeles, CA June 21 and wraps on June 30 in Washington, D.C. Tickets for the newly announced dates go on-sale this Friday, May 11.
“Playing live is my favorite thing to do, so what better way to celebrate my first single on country radio than to play it LIVE?” says Evans. “I’ll be bringing the loop pedal and giving you the first listen to music that is to come. I’d do 365 if I could, but 10 seems like a reasonable place to start. I can’t wait to see all 10 cities in 10 days!”
The Australia native’s debut U.S. single “Kiss Somebody” is closing in on Top 15 at Country radio after racking up 30 million on-demand streams and skyrocketing into Spotify’s Global Viral 50 chart. Penned by Evans – alongside frequent collaborators Chris DeStefano and Josh Osborne – the “refreshingly realistic” (Rolling Stone) jam is featured on his highly anticipated debut album.
The magnetic performer is currently wowing sell-out crowds as a special guest on Chris Young’s LOSING SLEEP WORLD TOUR after sharing the bill with Country hit maker Cole Swindell, international superstar Taylor Swift and more.
As his profile is on the rise, Evans has claimed a place on esteemed artist to watch lists by CMT, SiriusXM, Pandora, Rolling Stone, The Tennessean, Bobby Bones’ “Class of 2018” and more. Already an undeniable star Down Under, he has tallied countless awards and honors including Country Work of the Year for “Kiss Somebody” at the 2018 APRA Music Awards (Australia’s version of PRO Awards).
