Kylie Morgan at Buck Owens Crystal Palace
February 29, 2020
It was another great listener appreciation show at Buck Owens' Crystal Palace on Feb. 12. Kylie Morgan was the headliner. She is an EMI Recording Artist (Electric and Musical Industries now Universal Music Group). She began writing songs in her hometown of Newcastle, Okla., when she was only 12 years old.
The young singer-songwriter released her music independently in her early teens and received national attention from music producers and the television industry. At the age of 16, she was named "Who New To Watch" by the Country Music Association. This early success led Morgan to begin making regular trips to Nashville, perfecting her vocal and song writing skills. Morgan is known to be a very talented storyteller. At age 19, Morgan decided to call Nashville home. Perceiving her unique talent, the Nashville-based SMACKSongs music publishing team signed Morgan to their artist group and placed her under the guidance of GRAMMY Award-winning songwriters, Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne.
In addition to being a talented singer and songwriter, Morgan is also a yoga enthusiast. She earned her official Yoga Alliance Certification and participates in daily yoga practice.
Morgan recently released her autobiographical new song "Boys Girl" which she performed at the Palace and has just been selected as one of three artists for the CMA KixStart program where she will receive unique opportunities to participate in events as well as connect with industry professionals. Morgan has toured with artists including Dan + Shay, Little Big Town, Maren Morris, Gavin DeGraw, Brett Eldredge and Billy Currington. Morgan was also named part of CMT's Listen Up Class of 2019 and has been performing shows across the country, opening for artists such as Jon Pardi, Kip Moore, Devin Dawson, Lady Antebellum and Carly Pearce. Morgan plans on releasing a debut album soon, working with producers Shane McAnally and Ben Johnson.
Morgan is a big fan of Miranda Lambert and won a Les Paul Guitar in a Miranda Lambert Contest several years ago. She also performed a few of Lambert's songs at the concert.
As Morgan is only 24 years old, it seems certain that we will be seeing and hearing a lot from her in the future.
As always, Buck Owens' Crystal Palace features great family entertainment. I highly recommend this venue! For the concert schedule and interesting information about Buck Owens' Crystal Palace, visit http://www.buckowens.com.
