Armed with his guitar and a loop pedal setup, Morgan Evans stopped by the NASH campus today (Sept. 15) to perform a four-song set.
In addition to playing his current single, “Kiss Somebody,” the Australian native treated guests to the first love song—“Dance With Me”—he wrote for his fiancée, Kelsea Ballerini.
“I met a girl last year and on Christmas Day we got engaged,” said Morgan from the stage. “I’ve written a lot of love songs in my life, but this is my favorite one I’ve ever written. It’s my favorite one for a lot of reasons, it’s the first one I wrote for [Kelsea] . . . I wrote it one morning on a Tuesday at 9 o’clock in the morning. I was waiting for her to come on the TV. She was singing on the morning show. And the morning show was, like, talking about gossip or something like that, and it was the worse thing I’d ever seen so I couldn’t watch it. So I put it on mute, and I picked up the guitar and I just started playing this. This first verse and chorus came out in 20 minutes. It’s called ‘Dance With Me.’”
