The country singer will have you want to grab that special someone and lay one on them.
Confirmed to return to the UK in 2018 for the Country to Country festival in London and Glasgow, rising country artist Morgan Evans has released the video for his hugely successful Warner Music Nashville debut single Kiss Somebody.
The track is an addictive love song with an up-beat personality and the most adorable lyrics. Just listen to that chorus: “Sometimes you gotta kiss somebody in the back of a cab or on a subway train. Sometimes you gotta kiss somebody on a midnight street in the summer rain. If you’re wishing you were with somebody cause you don’t wanna go home when it’s closin’ time. If you wanna kiss somebody, baby, I got somebody in mind.”
No surprise Evans is in a lovey-dovey mood, earlier this month he married fellow country rising star and Grammy-nominee Kelsea Ballerini, who recently released her sophomore record Unapologetically.
Check out the video for Kiss Somebody below:
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’ new track.
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 an appearance at the UK’s Country to Country festival and a string of dates on Chris Young’s 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.
So until we see Morgan Evans back in the UK, snuggle up and listen to his feel-good new single.
