Alright! This is reminding me of the ’90s. We have a young kid that’s going to use all three of his names. And the song is a big time throwback to the traditional sound of the ’90s. There were so many good artists that came out during that period with catchy traditional music. This kid, William Michael Morgan, is reminding me of folks like John Michael Montgomery, Tracy Byrd, Mark Chesnutt and others.
Let’s check out this first single, which is already creeping into the top 30 on the chart.
I Met A Girl – William Michael Morgan
It’s pretty much been Chris Young, Dustin Lynch, Justin Moore and Scotty McCreery holding the traditional country banner the last few years. Country always goes in cycles and things have been pretty rock and roll and even a little hip hop and pop for awhile.
Maybe we’re due for things to swing back the other way for awhile. Wouldn’t that be great?
That would be good news for those four guys mentioned above and it would be great for new artists like William Michael Morgan. He’s got a new EP out and the first single is this one and it’s a good one. It’s a pretty straight ahead love song with that traditional sound. It’s something you can kind of slow dance to with the one you love.
Good, country music right here. I really like this one and I’m excited about how fans are responding.
