William Michael Morgan just released his debut album, Vinyl, on Friday September 30. Following the excitement of the album release, Morgan also celebrates his very first No. 1 single with “I Met A Girl.” After 58 weeks at country radio, and 49 weeks on the Mediabase chart, the single made its way to the top and serves as the longest chart run to the top in Mediabase/Aircheck chart history.
“Wow. We did it! What a dream come true,” said Morgan. “After 58 weeks of clawing and fighting and believing and trusting in our radio promo team, my management Joe Carter and Mike Taliaferro, the entire Warner Music Nashville team, country radio, the fans, my producers Jimmy Ritchey and Scott Hendricks, my family and friends for undying and unwavering support, and most importantly the good Lord above…I am proud and most importantly honored to announce my gratitude and many thanks to everyone involved in this most special moment in my life, and in my career! Here’s to this No, 1 and hopefully many more to come. God bless all of you. And God bless country music!”
“I Met A Girl,” written by Sam Hunt, Trevor Rosen and Shane McAnally serves as a fantastic introduction to the country newcomer. His traditional roots are further delivered in his new music on Vinyl, and is a great welcome to the genre.
“This song truly paves the way for William Michael and the joyful traditional sound to get back on the airwaves,” says John Esposito, Chairman and CEO of Warner Music Nashville. “This historic run proves the tenacity of artist development, which is the cornerstone of how our label rolls!”
Vinyl is available at retail stores now, as well as digital music outlets. Be sure to grab a copy and add to your country music collection.
