ONErpm Nashville is proud to announce the signing of rising country artist William Michael Morgan, who will be releasing a Keith Stegall–produced EP later this year. Morgan, a modern-day traditionalist, previously earned a No. 1 single with “I Met a Girl,” described by Rolling Stone as a “laid-back ode to the joy of romantic discovery” that was named one of NPR Music’s Top 100 Songs of 2016. This Gold-certified single paved the way for a top 5 debut of Morgan’s first album, Vinyl, on the Billboard Country Albums chart.
Since then, the 29-year-old Mississippi native has been building his fan base by touring the country and releasing music that remains true to his Vicksburg roots with a voice that “resonates with the flawless timbre of someone who has been singing country music for decades beyond his years,” according to Pandora.
“It is an honor to be teaming up with ONErpm,” Morgan says, noting that “Tim Wipperman, Ryan Cunningham and the team there really believe in the kind of music we are making” and further explaining that his new music, produced by the legendary Stegall, “is something I’ve been working toward my whole career. All the ups and downs, the growth and learning—you can hear it all in this new music, the majority of which I have written as a result of my own life lessons.”
“William Michael Morgan has had an amazing career so far,” affirms Cunningham, A&R director of Country Music for ONErpm. “We believe in him as an artist, and we’re excited to see how high he can climb with this new music.”
2023 is looking like a breakout year for Morgan, with the forthcoming album and summer tour dates scheduled from Sevierville and Nashville, Tenn. to Galveston, Texas, and Comstock, Neb.
As one of the more recent CRS New Faces of Country Music, Morgan has already accumulated over 100 million on-demand streams.
