NASHVILLE, TN – (December 14, 2017) – The one-of-a-kind and visually fascinating music video for Morgan Evan’s debut single “Kiss Somebody” premiered nationally today exclusively with CMT, CMT Music and CMT.com (WATCH HERE: http://www.cmt.com/videos/morgan-evans/1799283/kiss-somebody.jhtml). Filmed in nearly a single-shot and in extreme slow-motion, this innovative and avant-garde video breaks new ground within the genre for Evans’ “upbeat, addictively optimistic track” (The Boot).  The song also made an impressive appearance the day it was released on Spotify’s Global Viral 50 Chart and skyrocketed to #15 on its US Viral 50 chart, earning him early admiration from Rolling Stone, Billboard, MusicRow and more.
 
In addition to their support of the Jeff Venable-directed video, CMT has named Evans as one of their #18for2018 artists, with Pandora and Sounds Like Nashville also touting the singer/songwriter as a country artist to watch. Fans will have plenty of chances to do just that as the Australian-native gets ready to join label-mate Cole Swindell for his “Down Home Tour” in January followed by a string of dates on Chris Young’s “Losing Sleep Tour.” With an engaging live show built around a loop pedal setup, “Evans can command a stage solo, with plenty of charm and a showman's flair that would make Urban proud” (Rolling Stone).
 
Co-written by Evans with Chris DeStefano (Carrie Underwood, Brett Eldredge, Rascal Flatts) and Josh Osborne (Sam Hunt, Blake Shelton, Keith Urban),”Kiss Somebody” is already making waves in Australia as the No. 1 song on their iTunes Top Country Songs chart and Apple A:List Country chart. After moving to Nashville in 2016, he immediately set to work and is currently in the studio making new music for his forthcoming Warner Bros. Records/Warner Music Nashville debut. “Kiss Somebody” is available to all digital music platforms now.
