Off the Beaten Path Morgan Wade

Loretta Lynn.. Pasty Cline.. Dolly Parton.., those names instantly bring to mind unforgettable songs and incredible voices that have stood the test of time. Make no mistake about it when I say that one day soon that list will include another name: Morgan Wade.
One listen to “The Night” will tell you that the 25 year old is wise beyond her years. There is something in that song that everyone can relate to. Her music manages to seem incredibly intimate and personal while remaining universally relatable. There aren’t many singers that can make you feel something deep down inside you, quite the way she does. Just listen to “Wilder Days” or “Kelley’s Drive” and you’ll see exactly what I mean.
 
 
Her debut album with her band ‘Morgan Wade and the  Stepbrothers’, titled ‘Puppets With My Heart’ was released in 2018. She’s currently working with Sadler Vaden on a full length album. With those two on the same project, you can rest assured the end result will be nothing short of amazing. Be sure to check out her new single “Don’t Cry” on youtube!
In the world of country music, where men get most of the credit, Morgan Wade is a stark reminder that women in country music are so much more than just the pretty little thing riding shotgun in the pickup. Nor is she one of “flavor-of-the-minute” pop country artists that pop up all the time, dominating the country radio for a month or two, only to disappear. Morgan Wade has something real to say, and she’s here to stay.
