Ladies and gents, let’s talk about the intoxicating force of nature that is Megan Moroney, the Georgia peach who’s taken the country music scene by storm. With her debut album, “Lucky,” Megan gives us an intimate, electrifying, and heartbreakingly honest glimpse into her life at the tender age of 25.
Born and bred in Savannah, Georgia, Megan Moroney grew up with country music in her blood. After completing her degree at the University of Georgia and making waves opening for the likes of Chase Rice and Kristian Bush of Sugarland, she packed her bags and moved to Nashville in 2020. Her journey began with the release of her single “Wonder” in 2021, followed by her EP, “Pistol Made of Roses.” But it was “Tennessee Orange” that catapulted her into stardom in 2022, earning her a spot on the CMT Next Women of Country Class of 2023 and a RIAA Platinum Certification by April 2023.
Moroney’s “Lucky” is a rollercoaster of emotions, with songs that delve into the complexities of toxic relationships, the confusion of romance, and the exhilarating thrill of making questionably bad decisions on a wild night out. Produced by Sugarland’s Kristian Bush, the album showcases Megan’s signature conversational lyricism and clever wordplay. It’s a little bit Kacey Musgraves meets Miranda Lambert – a fierce combination that’s bound to capture hearts.
Let’s dive into the tracks, shall we? The album kicks off with the catchy, unapologetic “I’m Not Pretty,” a tune that reminds us that Megan Moroney isn’t your cookie-cutter country star – she’s a force to be reckoned with. The title track, “Lucky,” is an irresistible two-stepping number that feels like a throwback to the golden days of ’90s country radio, while “Girl in the Mirror” is a soul-baring ballad about losing oneself in a tumultuous relationship.
But Moroney isn’t just about the heartache – she knows how to have a good time, too. “Traitor Joe” and “Why Johnny” are sassy, in-your-face anthems that showcase her fiery personality and fierce wit. “God Plays a Gibson” is a rollicking tribute to Georgia, and “Sleep on My Side” shows off her softer, introspective side. The album closes with “Sad Songs for Sad People,” a beautifully melancholic tune that perfectly encapsulates the emotional journey of “Lucky.”
With her debut album making waves, Moroney is gearing up for her performance on NBC’s TODAY on May 15th. She’s already been nominated for New Female Artist of the Year at the 58th Academy of Country Music Awards, and her Pistol Made of Roses tour has sold out across the country.
This summer, Megan will be opening for country legends Brooks & Dunn before kicking off The Lucky Tour with a debut performance in New York City at The Bowery Ballroom on September 20. The 22-city trek will take her to iconic venues like Joe’s on Weed St. in Chicago, The Troubadour in Los Angeles, and Gruene Hall in New Braunfels, Texas.
