‘Whiskey Kinda Night’ brings country music comfort to the die-hard traditionalists
Today, Mississippi native William Michael Morgan releases a new track for country music lovers called “Whiskey Kinda Night.” This is the first of six upcoming releases from a mix of full band production with alternating acoustic classic recordings that William Michael will make available throughout the year.

The music video was directed by Victoria Metzger, a past winner of the Berkeley Student Film Festival, and was shot at local honky-tonk Scoreboard Nashville.
“Whiskey Kinda Night” written by Morgan, Doug Johnson and Adam Wood is the kind of song that calls up a memory from the days of slow dancing on a hardwood floor. Morgan says, “I’ve written a bunch of songs with Doug and Adam, who are also the producers on this track, but every once in a while you hit on something special. Very honored to have worked with those guys, the studio musicians and my team on this new project. Sometimes nothing gets you over her like a whiskey kinda night.”
Morgan’s new recordings build on the success of his rising young career. He earned a No. 1 single with his Gold-certified debut, “I Met A Girl,” that Rolling Stone described as a “laid-back ode to the joy of romantic discovery” and was named one of NPR Music’s Top 100 Songs of 2016. His widespread adoration from country fans paved the way for his album Vinyl to debut Top 5 on the Billboard Country albums chart, earning critical acclaim in the process. Morgan has a voice that “resonates with the flawless timbre of someone who has been singing country music for decades beyond his years” (Pandora). As one of the 2017 CRS New Faces of Country Music he has already accumulated nearly 100 million on-demand streams.
