Morgan Evans lands first US #1 debut single “Kiss Somebody”

With early believers – including Rolling Stone, Billboard, and CMT – touting him as one of Country’s artists to watch, MORGAN EVANS has lived up to the title with his debut U.S. single “Kiss Somebody” hitting the #1 spot on the Country Aircheck/Mediabase radio airplay chart this week. Setting the tone for a breakthrough global career ahead, the song is featured on his just-released self-titled EP.

“I played my very first show on the other side of the world and the idea of traveling to America, let alone having the #1 song in Country music, was the dream. And, this week it has come true!” shares Evans. “I can’t even begin to express how overwhelmed I am with gratitude. THANK YOU to the fans and everyone at country radio for all the love you’ve given back to this song.”

Written by Evans, Chris DeStefano and Josh Osborne, the song previously topped SiriusXM The Highway’s HOT 30 Countdown, while surpassing 52 million on-demand streams and claiming a place on Spotify’s Global Viral 50 list. Following the Australia native’s buzzed-about performance on ABC’s The Bachelorette, “Kiss Somebody” shot to #4 on iTunes’ Top Country Songs chart.

Sure to showcase his “undeniable positivity” (Billboard) on his forthcoming Warner Music Nashville / Warner Bros. Records full-length debut album, Evans co-penned every track for the anticipated release. Further proving his “strong songwriting chops” (Rolling Stone), Evans has written two songs in this week’s Top 10: “Kiss Somebody” and Dylan Scott’s hit single “Hooked.”

Following his successful headline run on the 10 IN 10 TOUR, Evans has taken the stage at major fairs and festivals all summer long. This week (8/22) he’s set to perform during the 12th annual ACM Honors at the iconic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN. Heading Down Under for a string of SOLD OUT headline shows in Australia beginning September 5, he’ll return to the U.S. and rejoin Chris Young as a special guest on the LOSING SLEEP 2018 WORLD TOUR kicking off September 13.
