Friday, August 18th...Megan Moroney
Born and raised in Georgia, Megan Moroney grew up in a musical household heavily influenced by legendary songwriters in classic country, southern rock, and americana. During Megan’s freshman year at the University of Georgia, an opportunity to open for an established country artist at the iconic Georgia Theatre prompted Megan to write her very first original song. From there, she developed a love for storytelling and has become known for her distinctive voice and honest, conversational lyrics.
2022 brought the singer a breakout year with the release of her debut EP, Pistol Made of Roses, followed by her single “Tennessee Orange,” which put Megan on the map as Nashville’s most compelling new artist. The colossal buzz surrounding the track prompted her to perform it on ESPN’s College GameDay, while racking up an average of 5 million streams a week and over 70 million global streams to date. Currently, “Tennessee Orange” is the #1 weekly streamed song by a solo female country artist.
After opening stints on tours with Larry Fleet, Chase Matthews, Jamey Johnson, and Warren Zeiders this year, Megan is set to kick off her sold out headlining PISTOL MADE OF ROSES tour this spring. Pulling inspiration from artists such as Miranda Lambert and Kacey Musgraves, the “musical risktaker with powerhouse pipes” (CMT) and “2023 Artist to Watch” (Spotify, Pandora, Holler, The Nash News) is slated to become a household name in the years to come. Megan just won CMTs 2023 Breakthrough Entertainer of the year. Today the Academy of Country Music nominated her as one of the new female artist’s of 2023.
