Following his first UK tour earlier this year and the highly successful release of his debut Warner Music Nashville single 'Kiss Somebody' - which has received major airplay across the USA, Australia and the UK including BBC Radio 2 & Chris Country - rising country artist Morgan Evans has been announced as one of the Spotlight Stage artists at next year's Country to Country (C2C) festival at the O2 Arena in London, taking place 9th-11th March 2018.
Looking forward to the trip, Morgan said: "There's a really special feeling about the country music community in the UK. The fans are so passionate, the sing-alongs are so epic and energy is contagious! I can't wait to get back to London in March 2018 for the C2C Festival!"
ABOUT MORGAN EVANS:
Hailing from Newcastle, Australia, a steel and coal town on the east coast, Evans recalls an early interest in music when he started playing guitar at the age of 13. He spent his teenage years seeing the country through the windshield of an old van as he toured in a band with his brother. Raised listening to artists like Garth Brooks, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Creedence Clearwater Revival and Led Zeppelin, it was at the age of 17 when a Keith Urban concert changed his life. From that point on, he knew music was exactly what he wanted to spend his life creating. Signed to Warner Music Australia since 2012, he now continues his relationship with the Warner Music family in Nashville.
Evans played the historic Grand Ole Opry stage in May, followed by a performance the following evening at Nashville’s legendary Bluebird Café, and is currently in the studio working on new music with songwriter/producer Chris DeStefano (Dan+Shay, Rascal Flatts, Thomas Rhett). His debut single on Warner Nashville 'Kiss Somebody' is out now and has been streamed over 7.5m times.
