NASHVILLE, TENN. (April 25, 2023) – Marking her first headline show in Nashville, TN, with a roaring SOLD OUT crowd, Sony Music Nashville/Columbia Records’ rising star Megan Moroney brought her PISTOL MADE OF ROSES TOUR to the legendary Exit/In last Wednesday (4/19).
Kicking off the set with fan-favorite, “Til It All Goes South,” the pretty-in-pink powerhouse commanded the stage as she previewed new songs off her forthcoming Kristian Bush-produced debut album, LUCKY (out May 5), added her own spin to covers like Miranda Lambert’s “Gunpowder and Lead,” and led fans in a booming sing-along to her Top 15-and-climbing smash “Tennessee Orange.”
One of the highlights came in the middle of the set when Moroney played three songs acoustic with just her guitar – “Why Johnny,” “Fix You Too,” and “Girl In The Mirror” – showcasing what’s been praised by Billboard as “a little rasp to her voice and a heart-on-her-sleeve style.”
The “musical risktaker with powerhouse pipes” (CMT) closed out the night by returning to the stage for a high-energy encore with “Lucky.”
Her breakout year continues as she will vie for NEW FEMALE ARTIST OF THE YEAR at the 58th Academy of Country Music Awards. Fans can tune in on May 11 at 8 p.m. EDT/7 p.m. CDT/5 p.m. PDT as it streams live exclusively on Prime Video from Ford Center at The Star in Frisco, TX. This nomination comes hot on the heels of her first career win for BREAKTHROUGH FEMALE VIDEO OF THE YEAR for her Jason Lester-directed “Tennessee Orange” clip (view here) at the 2023 CMT MUSIC AWARDS.
Following her SOLD OUT PISTOL MADE OF ROSES TOUR, Moroney’s follow-up trek, THE LUCKY TOUR, will launch in the fall. With many of the venues selling out within minutes, the 22-city tour kicks off with her New York City debut at The Bowery Ballroom on September 20, before taking her to major cities and iconic venues coast-to-coast including first-time stops as an in-demand headliner in Chicago (Joe’s on Weed St.), Los Angeles (Troubadour), New Braunfels, TX (Gruene Hall), and more, through November. In addition, she’s slated to support Country music icons Brooks & Dunn this summer. For full tour dates and ticketing information, visit meganmoroney.com.
