William Michael Morgan is “Workin'” in Brand New Song

The year may be winding down, but Warner Bros. / Warner Music Nashville recording artist William Michael Morgan is “Workin’” harder than ever with his brand new song (listen HERE). The foot-stomping country rocker, penned by Bart Butler, Aaron Goodvin, Driver Williams and Brett Tyler, closes 2018 as the final installment in Morgan’s From the Neon Lounge video series (watch HERE). 

“I first heard this song while traveling through Mexico, and it immediately struck a chord,” Morgan said. “It was just a rough work tape, but I saw those pictures. I saw the guy out there working and the girl with her feet up, drinking some red wine and waiting on me to call quitting time.”

The rising star will take “Workin’” and his four previously released new tunes on the road along with favorites from his debut album Vinyl for the Alan Jackson 2019 Tour. The run will kick off in Louisville, KY on January 25 and continue through the fall. 

Morgan has earned widespread praise for this year’s collection of songs and their Colin Duffy-directed videos. Rolling Stone praised the most recent addition “Gone Enough” for “mixing witty wordplay with the anthemic moves of modern country-rock radio” and named it one of their “10 Best Country and Americana Songs of the Week.” Watch the video for the song People described as “a driving heart-wrencher” HERE. The singer / songwriter also drew acclaim for “Talking To A Girl,” the “hopeful ballad” (The Boot) he penned alongside Bobby Pinson and Shane Minor (watch HERE). 

The New York Times included Morgan’s “Brokenhearted” as one of only two country entries by a solo male artist on their all-genre list of the “65 Best Songs of 2018,” explaining it as an “internal Nashville critique that’s both comedic and laser precise” (watch HERE). MusicRow called the tongue-in-cheek track “a real cool honky tonker” and suggested that listeners should “two-step across the dancefloor as he sings about the lack of heartache in today’s party-hearty country sound.” “Brokenhearted” followed “Tonight Girl,” with its “velvety-smooth vocals” that “stay with the listener” (Taste of Country).

Morgan’s new music builds on the success of his rising young career. He earned a No. 1 single with his Gold-certified debut, “I Met A Girl,” which Rolling Stone described the tune as a “laid-back ode to the joy of romantic discovery.” It was named one of NPR Music’s Top 100 Songs of 2016 and paved the way for his album Vinyl to debut Top 5 on the Billboard Country albums chart, earning widespread critical acclaim in the process. Morgan has a voice that “resonates with the flawless timbre of someone who has been singing country music for decades beyond his years” (Pandora). One of the 2017 CRS New Faces of Country Music, Morgan has already accumulated nearly 80 million on-demand streams
