About William Michael Morgan:

Breakout country star William Michael Morgan, who NPR Music praised for his “unreserved sentimentality and easeful, fine-tuned singing approach,” will release his debut album Vinyl September 30th on Warner Bros. / Warner Music Nashville. A “Must-Hear Country Album” according to Rolling Stone, the 11-track work produced by hit-maker Scott Hendricks and Jimmy Ritchey features Morgan’s Top 5 and climbing debut radio hit “I Met A Girl.” Penned by Sam Hunt, Shane McAnally and Trevor Rosen, it has clocked more than 13 million streams, including 5 million views of its official video, while drawing half a billion in audience since it was introduced. The single also topped SiriusXM’s “The Highway” Top 45 Countdown chart and was touted as a “Country Song of the Summer” by Billboard. Morgan was named an “Artist to Watch” by Pandora Radio, while CMA Close Up declared the 23-year-old Vicksburg, MS native “a leader of a new wave of traditional Country Music singers,” noting “Morgan’s voice is unabashedly old-school velvet.” For more information, visit: http://www.williammichaelmorgan.com

About RaeLynn:

Singer/songwriter RaeLynn’s current single “Love Triangle” is the first track released from her Warner Music Nashville/Warner Bros. Records debut WildHorse, due out December 2. While “Love Triangle” tells her personal story of what it was like growing up in a divorced family, the majority of the album is a broader look into her life over the past few years. Featured as a CMT Next Women of Country, RaeLynn is currently out on the road with Blake Shelton for his 2016 Tour Present by Gildan running through October.  For more information, visit: http://www.raelynn.com/mylovetriangle?ref=
