Megan Moroney – Bristol
Born and raised in Georgia, Megan Moroney grew up in a musical household heavily influenced by legendary songwriters in Classic Country, Southern Rock, and Americana. During her freshman year at the University of Georgia, an opportunity to open for an established Country artist at the iconic Georgia Theatre prompted Moroney to write her very first original song. From there, she developed a love for storytelling and has become known for her distinctive voice and honest, conversational lyrics. 2022 brought the singer a breakout year with the release of her debut EP, Pistol Made of Roses, followed by her single “Tennessee Orange,” which put her on the map as Nashville’s most compelling new artist. The colossal buzz surrounding the track prompted her to perform it on ESPN’s College GameDay, while racking up 155 MILLION global streams and counting (March 2023). The viral hit is also nominated for BREAKTHROUGH FEMALE VIDEO OF THE YEAR (“Tennessee Orange”) and CMT DIGITAL-FIRST PERFORMANCE OF THE YEAR (“Tennessee Orange” from CMT Viral To Verified) at the 2023 CMT MUSIC AWARDS. After opening stints on tours with Larry Fleet, Chase Matthews, Jamey Johnson, and Warren Zeiders last year, she is kicking off her first headline run with the SOLD-OUT PISTOL MADE OF ROSES TOUR this spring and set to open for Brooks & Dunn this summer.
Dubbed a “2023 Artist to Watch” by Amazon Music, Pandora, and Spotify, as well as one of CMT’s Next Women of Country for 2023, the “musical risktaker with powerhouse pipes” (CMT) is slated to become a household name in the years to come.
