Warner Music Nashville recording artist, Morgan Evans has been going full steam ahead, since the October release of his debut album, Things That We Drink To. While his song “Day Drunk” continues to climb the country charts, the singer-songwriter has created a new project entitled ‘Highway 1 Sessions.’
Yesterday, Evans dropped the first acoustic video in his new YouTube series for his song “Young Again.” The first installment features the singer, an acoustic guitar, at the retro-looking Majestic Ventura Theater in Ventura, California. Feeling inspired by his October trip along the Pacific Coast Highway, Evans recorded the video in just one-take, keeping the vibe cool, simple, and authentic to his Australian roots. The recording artist gives listeners a new way to experience the fun-loving track, keeping the lyrics the focus in his stripped-down performance. Check out the single-shot video below.
Evans shared a sentiment on his Instagram that truly embodies the passion project and what’s to come in the series. “We had a few days off between shows on the west coast in October, and I wanted to go on a bit of an adventure. It’s such a beautiful and inspiring part of the world. We met some incredible people, played some music, sat round camp fires, caught some waves & filmed a bunch stuff, while we were at it. I told some stories and shared the truth behind the songs on the album “Things That We Drink To.” We have called this series of videos and stories “The Highway 1 Sessions.” This is the first installment. It’s not overproduced, it’s not glossy or perfect, but it’s real and it’s me, and I hope you dig it.”
New Yorkers can catch Evans opening up for Chris Young on his ‘Losing Sleep World Tour’ with Dan + Shay, tomorrow night at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum on Long Island. Click here for tickets. In the new year, the singer-songwriter will join Old Dominion on their ‘Make It Sweet Tour,’ beginning in Illinois on January 18th. For more information, head to morganevansmusic.com.
