Morgan EvansMorgan Evans’ self-titled album debuted this week at #1 on the ARIA country album chart and #20 on the ARIA album chart.  The impressive chart successes adds to what has already been a phenomenal month for Morgan who recently cleaned up at the CMC Music Awards walking away with a record three awards -  including Oz Artist Of The Year,  Male Artist Of The Year and Australian Video Of The Year for Carry On.
The album was recorded in Nashville with an all-star cast of players and produced by ex-pat Aussie producer/musician Jedd Hughes (Keith Urban, Emmylou Harris, Alison Krauss). Morgan wrote ten of the twelve tracks - some on his own, some with local artists and many with A-list Nashville songwriters.
Morgan’s second single and video, Like A Tornado, will be released April 14. Written the day news broke of the horrendous tornadoes that ripped through Oklahoma in May 2013, the track highlights the glories and heartbreaks of love which are laid soulfully bare.
The track follows first single One  Eye for An Eye, a track about sweet revenge which has just spent its second week at #1 on the Country Radio Chart.
