Multi-No. 1 hit songwriter John Morgan today releases his insanely catchy new song “Friends Like That.” The confident new track – written by Morgan with Brent Anderson, Will Bundy and Lydia Vaughan – comes just in time for fall tailgates and bonfires. Listen now HERE.
Currently on superstar Jason Aldean’s Rock-N-Roll Cowboy Tour, “Friends Like That” pivots from Morgan’s typical sad boy Country catalog, and instead buoyantly brags on a guy who isn’t even thinking about his ex ‘cause he’s got friends like Jack and Willie keeping him company.
“The North Carolina native’s journey to stardom…” (Music Mayhem) began as a chance encounter. Now, “…achieving songwriter success this early in his career…” (Taste of Country), he’s fueling that fire by becoming an even more prolific songwriter – churning out hit songs write after write, earning 8 cuts on Aldean’s latest double album Macon, Georgia along with two back-to-back No. 1s with “If I Didn’t Love You” and “Trouble With A Heartbreak” – as well as continuously hitting the road, playing sold-out amphitheaters and arenas with his mentor Jason Aldean.
“Morgan is standing apart from the rest of the Country crowd as he brings a more traditional Country flair to the Pop-Country sounds of today’s genre” (Songwriter Universe). And his rising star doesn’t stop there, as he most recently competed on NBC’s American Song Contest, with Billboard applauding that the show “…unearthed a future star from North Carolina who has been writing in the shadows in Nashville.”

About John Morgan With a style that’s defined by melodic grit and a craftsman’s approach to songwriting, John Morgan brings a blue-collar toughness to Country that’s pulled straight from the only life he knows. Hailing from a tiny town called Sylva, deep in the Great Smoky Mountains of North Carolina, John Morgan grew up immersed in Bluegrass tradition and even toured the festival circuit each summer in a family band, before diving into songwriting, inspired by six-string legends from Tony Rice to John Mayer. More than a year after selling everything he had to follow his dream, an only-in-Nashville story involving Uber drivers and impressive demos led to a writing session with Kurt Allison and Tully Kennedy—two incredible songwriters and longtime bandmates of Country superstar Jason Aldean. That session led to the superstar cutting eight songs written by John, including his recent No. 1 “Trouble With A Heartbreak” and the GRAMMY® nominated ACM Single of the Year No. 1 smash hit with Carrie Underwood, “If I Didn’t Love You,” and Aldean signing John to Night Train Records, his imprint with BBR Music Group. The sought-after songwriter has released a trio of “Sad Boy Country” songs—his debut track, “Coldest Beer in Town,” “Right In The Middle,” which he performed on NBC’s American Song Contest and “Good With Goodbye.” Just in time for Aldean’s Rock N’ Roll Cowboy Tour to hit Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Morgan releases “Friends Like That,” his first pivot from heartbreak into party starter territory, making us all wish we had “friends like that.”https://www.countryschatter.com/2022/09/no-1-hit-sonewriter-john-morgan-has-friends-like-that-in-new-song-out-now/New ReleasesPress ReleaseTours"Coldest Beer in Town","Friends Like That","Good With Goodbye",Jason Aldean's Rock-N-Roll Cowboy Tour,John Morgan,Music Mayhem,taste of country
