Breakout star Morgan Wade is only getting started with her debut album, “Reckless,” listen here. Morgan grew up in a small Virginia town and was surrounded by bluegrass music. She took music lessons after her grandma bought her very first guitar. Morgan never shared her incredible singing and songwriting talents until college. After going through a breakup in her first year of college, Wade took to Craigslist to find band members to play a few shows, and she loved it. She played on the weekends and her “family was surprised at first, but they are super supportive. It was a shock to them, but not because they didn’t believe in me”.
The debut album “Reckless” was a two-year writing process after linking up with guitarist and songwriter Sadler Vaden. At a festival, Wade’s set caught the eye of Vaden’s sound technician who put her in touch with him. Days later, Wade played Vaden her now hit song, “Wilder Days" and the rest is history.
Recently, Wade has been touring with Ashley McBryde telling us, “Ashley is super nice, sometimes it can suck travelling with bands, but not Ashley, she is very genuine person.” Wade loves playing for a crowd but especially loves “When you have a crowd singing your song word for word, that is a feeling that never gets old.” Morgan is currently on tour; you can find her touring schedule here.
Morgan has gone from finding band members on Craigslist to inking a record deal with Sony Nashville and reflects on it by saying “Looking back, I can see it now. I spend so much time writing for me, no one else. That has helped me grow into the writer I am because I don’t know any other way.” The Wilder Days singer wants aspiring artists to know to “be honest. As cliché as it sounds, stay true to yourself because you can compare yourself but there is only one you.”
