Our long-time readers know how much we like William Michael Morgan. And, while the media still considers him ‘an up-and-coming country singer’, we have thought of him as a real star since 2010. You probably remember that a few weeks ago we had our first opportunity to see him on stage. Today we received a press release, telling us that a lot of other lucky folks got to see this guy on stage last night, when he opened for country music legend, Garth Brooks. Below is the press release, along with a number of social media links where you can keep up with William Michael Morgan.
[Press Release] Critically acclaimed singer/songwriter William Michael Morgan fulfilled a lifelong dream last night, sharing the stage with music icon Garth Brooks. Morgan thrilled fans as a surprise opener during the final night of “The Garth Brooks World Tour” three-night, four-show stop to record crowds at the Save Mart Center in Fresno, CA.
Morgan’s high energy set included album title track “Vinyl,” a cover of Keith Whitley’s “Miami My Amy,” and a giant singalong to his Top 5 and climbing hit “I Met A Girl.”
“Wow. Unbelievable. I am still in shock and the adrenaline is still pumping through my veins from last night,” says Morgan. “I’m so blessed and honored to have had the opportunity to open for one of my biggest heroes and country music icon, Garth Brooks! It will always be a milestone marker in my life going forward.”
The mega-hit, which has already topped SiriusXM’s “The Highway” Top 45 Countdown chart, has garnered over half a billion audience impressions, including 14 million streams and 5.3 million views of its official video.
It is among the 11 stellar tracks included on Morgan’s debut album VINYL, deemed a “must hear” by Rolling Stone. Morgan is excitedly preparing to launch the project, produced by award-winning Scott Hendricks and Jimmy Ritchey, on Friday, September 30. Fans can pre-order now HERE.
