    WILLIAM MICHAEL MORGAN MOVES INTO TOP 5 ON COUNTRY RADIO WITH DEBUT HIT ‘I MET A GIRL’

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. – (September 13, 2016) –The vocally impressive newcomer William Michael Morgan continues his journey to the top of the country charts with his debut hit single “I Met A Girl,” moving into the Top 5 this week. The track, which has nearly a half billion in audience, is featured on his upcoming album Vinyl (Sept. 30, Warner Bros. / Warner Music Nashville). Clocking more than 13 million streams, including over 4.7 million views of its official video, Morgan is also celebrating the addition of “I Met A Girl” to Spotify’s Hot Country playlist, which taps into the hottest tracks worldwide from today's superstars to the latest up-and-coming artists. The hit song saw some of his biggest streams to date with a 130% increase in the past week alone.
    Morgan was named a Rolling Stone Country “Artist You Need To Know” upon release of his debut single, while Pandora radio named him an “Artist to Watch.” CMA Close Up declared him “a leader of a new wave of traditional Country Music singers,” noting “Morgan’s voice is unabashedly old-school velvet.”
    “I Met A Girl,” was named a “Country Song of the Summer” by Billboard and has already topped SiriusXM’s “The Highway” Top 45 Countdown chart. Fans who pre-order the album will instantly receive the chart-climbing single along with “Missing,” a new track that Saving Country Music applauded and described as “[tapping] right into that genuine country music goodness.”
    The Vicksburg, MS native, at only 23 years old, is earning compliments from other country music superstars, who are taking notice of his powerful voice. Jake Owen has said “I’ve never met William Michael Morgan, but his voice is awesome and that song is great,” while Jason Aldean explains, “I think it’s really important to have those guys that are the traditionalists that carry the flag in country music, and after hearing [William Michael Morgan] sing I was like – “This could be the dude.’ I love the song, I love his voice and I think we need this kind of [artist] in the format.”
