Sony Music Nashville/Columbia Records’ rising star Megan Moroney is announcing today (3/2) that her debut album, LUCKY, drops May 5 and fans can pre-save/pre-add now. Gambling on pour decisions, the luck-struck title track is the next taste of the hotly anticipated project and will release March 10.
“After we wrote the title track ‘Lucky,’ I knew I wanted it to be the name of my debut album,” shares Moroney. “If you know anything about me and my story, a lot of things (both good and bad) happened to get me to where I am today, and I just feel very lucky. I couldn’t live out this dream without the support of my fans, family, and team. I can’t wait to bring these songs on the road with me this year and I hope everyone loves them as much as I do!”
Co-written by Moroney with Casey Smith, Ben Williams, and David “Messy” Mescon, the Kristian Bush-produced “Lucky” follows her latest hit “I’m Not Pretty,” which has Billboard raving about “a cheeky, defiant clapback,” and MusicRow applauding, “This clever, femme-centric ditty confirms her status as a first-class, off-center, wonderfully creative Country artist.” Catapulting onto the scene with her viral breakout “Tennessee Orange,” the Top 25-and-climbing at Country radio track was recently the #1 weekly streamed song by a solo female Country artist and has amassed nearly 140 MILLION total global on-demand streams to date.
Praised by CMT as the “musical risktaker with powerhouse pipes,” Moroney is a part of the CMT Next Women of Country Class of 2023 and was named a “2023 Artist to Watch” by Amazon Music, Pandora, Spotify, and more. Spotlighted as one of SiriusXM’s “2023 Future Five,” Holler further predicted, “Megan Moroney has a smooth, honeyed voice that combines with a casual, conversational charm to make her one to watch in 2023.”
Kicking off her first headlining PISTOL MADE OF ROSES TOUR next month, she’s also slated to support Country music icons Brooks & Dunn this summer. For full tour dates and ticketing information, visit meganmoroney.com.

ABOUT MEGAN MORONEY:
Born and raised in Georgia, Megan Moroney grew up in a musical household heavily influenced by legendary songwriters in Classic Country, Southern Rock, and Americana. During her freshman year at the University of Georgia, an opportunity to open for an established Country artist at the iconic Georgia Theatre prompted Moroney to write her very first original song. From there, she developed a love for storytelling and has become known for her distinctive voice and honest, conversational lyrics. 2022 brought the singer a breakout year with the release of her debut EP, Pistol Made of Roses, followed by her single “Tennessee Orange,” which put her on the map as Nashville’s most compelling new artist. The colossal buzz surrounding the track prompted her to perform it on ESPN’s College GameDay, while racking up nearly 140 MILLION global streams to date. After opening stints on tours with Larry Fleet, Chase Matthews, Jamey Johnson, and Warren Zeiders last year, she is kicking off her headlining PISTOL MADE OF ROSES TOUR this spring and set to open for Brooks & Dunn this summer. Dubbed a “2023 Artist to Watch” by Amazon Music, Pandora, and Spotify, as well as one of CMT’s Next Women of Country for 2023, the “musical risktaker with powerhouse pipes” (CMT) is slated to become a household name in the years to come.
