Morgan Evans’ debut U.S. single “Kiss Somebody” hit the #1 spot on the Country Aircheck/Mediabase radio airplay chart this week. 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.
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.
