One great way a rising country artist can really make an impact is by releasing a video that is memorable. The question is, how do you do that? It looks like newcomer Morgan Evans and his creative video team may have figured it out.
Morgan, who was recently in the news after tying the knot with Kelsea Ballerina in a Mexican beach ceremony, has just released the video for his first U.S. single, “Kiss Somebody.” And much like the romantically buoyant, toe-tapping tune itself, the video gives a light-hearted look at dating do-overs.
It also gives us a little game of “Where’s Waldo” … or where’s Morgan.
As the romantic lead in the video realizes that he may regret not kissing the lady he just left on the corner, he makes his way back to her in slo-mo, but not without a few minor catastrophes and a random act of heroism along the way.
Upsetting a server’s tray of food and a mailman’s stack of boxes, the gentleman also manages to score a bouquet of flowers and a marathoner’s cup of water on his way back to that corner. And let’s not forget that he also deters a crime in progress when he runs up on a purse snatcher and manages to deck the perpetrator and return the handbag to its elderly owner.
Peppered throughout the video, if you’re watching closely, you’ll also spot Morgan making cameos as something other than the featured performer. Watch it again!
In addition to trading “I dos” with new bride Kelsea, earlier this month, Morgan has had a banner year in country music He signed with Nashville-based record label Warner Music Group and spent a good chunk of his year visiting radio to promote his new project.
While the award-winning singer-songwriter has previously released music in his homeland of Australia, his next project will be a U.S. release. We’re still waiting for an official release date what will be his sophomore album, but in the meantime, he’ll be touring big time in 2018. Morgan has signed up to hit the road with Chris Young and Kane Brown on the “Losing Sleep Tour” and also on Cole Swindell’s “Down Home Tour.”
Not a bad start to life in America!
