But it isn't just straight up country that has influenced the young songbird. Thanks to her family and her grandpa, Morgan has been exposed to a variety of musical styles. But she does have her own tastes. "I love Randy Rogers Band, Johnny Cooper, but my mom was into Motown funk music – Earth, Wind and Fire-type thing," she says. "My dad was into Led Zeppelin and Creedence Clearwater Revival, Bachman-Turner Overdrive, and that type of thing. And then my grandpa, he taught me everything from Hank Snow to Patsy Montana to Loretta Lynn and Patsy Cline. So I got three completely different genres of music. And I've always said I love a song, a good song. I'm a song person. It doesn't matter what kind of music it is. I love it all."
It is said in Nashville that "it all starts with a song" and regardless of appearance, personality or talent, if the songs aren't there, nothing is there. The songs are there. When Morgan's manager, John Northrup, encouraged her to return to Music City, he also offered to pair her with a songwriting friend of his, but it wasn't just any Nashville songwriter. The man who has written most of George Strait's biggest hits—Dean Dillon—was her first co-write. She lights up when she talks about it.
"People dream about writing with him and it just happened that my manager was good friends with him and asked him a favor. We've written many songs since and I got to learn how to write from those guys – Dean Dillon, Paul Overstreet, John Scott Sherrill."
Effortless, pure, rich, sweet without being saccharine and even owning a little feminine swagger, Morgan is poised to be a voice on the radio that is easily and instantly identifiable. From the sweet waltz of "Part Of My Show," to the edgy push of "Cowboys Ride," to her the insanely infectious "Yellow Brick Road," you'll know it's undoubtedly Morgan. And it's undeniably good.
