With a style that’s defined by melodic grit and a craftsman’s approach to songwriting, John Morgan brings a blue-collar toughness to Country that’s pulled straight from the only life he knows. Hailing from a tiny town called Sylva, deep in the Great Smoky Mountains
of North Carolina, John Morgan grew up immersed in Bluegrass tradition and even toured the festival circuit each summer in a family band, before diving into songwriting, inspired by six-string legends from Tony Rice to John Mayer.
More than a year after selling everything he had to follow his dream, an only-in-Nashville story involving Uber drivers and impressive demos led to a writing session with Kurt Allison and Tully Kennedy—two incredible songwriters and longtime bandmates of Country superstar Jason Aldean. That session led to the superstar cutting eight songs written by John, including his recent No. 1 “Trouble With A Heartbreak” and the GRAMMY® nominated ACM Single of the Year No. 1 smash hit with Carrie Underwood, “If I Didn’t Love You” and Aldean signing John to Night Train Records, his imprint with BBR Music Group.
The sought-after songwriter has released a trio of Sad Boy Country songs including, “Coldest Beer In Town,” “Right In The Middle,” and “Good With Goodbye.” Having just wrapped Aldean’s 2022 Rock N’ Roll Cowboy Tour, John made his first pivot from heartbreak into party starter territory, dropping the anthemic “Friends Like That” and unapologetic “Sorry Not Sorry” as he readies more new music later this year.
