Kylie Morgan has released her debut EP, Love, Kylie, which features the lead track and our Song of the Day, Shoulda. Co-written with Shane McAnally and Ben Johnson, the upbeat tune centers on Kylie reminiscing and regretting the decision to go out the night before.
Kylie says, “I co-wrote this song over Zoom back when we thought quarantine would be over in a few months. Even in those first few weeks I was going crazy wanting to get back to ‘normal.’ I wanted to go sit at a bar, hug a stronger or most of all play more shows. So, I put all of those feelings into this song by highlighting we want what we can’t have and want to do what we shouldn’t. Once this is all behind us, my dream is to play this song in a stadium full of people with everyone singing the words back to me. I hope this is our anthem for all the things we shoulda done.”
Kylie began writing songs and learning to play guitar in her hometown of Newcastle, Oklahoma when she was only 12 years old, where her two biggest earlier influences were Shirley Temple and Shania Twain. Signing her first indie record deal at 14-years-old, her music first garnered attention through her posts on social media platform MySpace.
She moved to Nashville at 19, and was later named as part of CMT’s ‘Listen Up’ Class of 2019 and one of CMT’s 2020 ‘Next Women of Country’. Now 25, Kylie has toured with artists including Dan + Shay, Little Big Town, Maren Morris, Brett Eldredge and Billy Currington and opened for Jon Pardi, Kip Moore, Devin Dawson, Lady A and Carly Pearce.
