Morgan Myles: Attitude, Teamwork & Vocal Recording

Our guest this week is Nashville based singer/songwriter Morgan Myles.

Morgan completed her first solo record in 2009, writing every song and promoting it throughout Europe. Shortly after, she opened for Reba McEntire, and played at the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver. Her most eye-opening moment was performing for US troops departing for Iraq at Camp Shelby Mississippi where she rediscovered the power of music. She also caught the attention of BMI’s Mark Mason and was featured in the Key West Songwriter’s festivals, BMI Buzz showcases, as well as BMI Presents.

Morgan’s latest EP received great reviews from the industry including Music Row Magazine, Taste of Country, as well as CMT who aired an exclusive premiere of her music video, “Whiskey Dreaming.”
