COLLEGE STATION, TX – Morgan Ashley of College Station can’t think of a better way to wrap up 2021. The 24-year-old country soul singer won the Texas Country Music Association’s Female Artist of the Year award on last month and now has a powerful new anthem on the radio. She released her new single, “Girl FYI”, on radio and streaming platforms on December 3rd.
“I wrote ‘Girl FYI’ after dating a guy for about a year and then started to suspect he was dating someone else too. When I finally realized what was going on, I ended the relationship; but he kept seeing this other girl, and she didn’t know he was dating me at the same time, ”Morgan said. “So this song is my way of approaching my personal situation and saying -” Hey girl, for the record – he was with me last night and said he loved me – so something’s wrong here . “”
The song’s upbeat tempo and edgy melody help get Morgan’s message across – call a spade a spade and bring the truth to light.
“I hope this will empower people. Writing it down was a step towards healing and overcoming what happened to me. I want this to be a hymn that people can listen to and relate to, or they can sing it out loud and feel inspired, ”Morgan added.
Morgan has felt inspired all year round – maybe that’s because she sees her hard work paying off. In the spring of 2021, she won New Singer of the Year at the Texas Regional Radio Music Awards, followed by Female Artist of the Year this fall at the Texas County Music Awards, held at Billy Bob’s Texas on November 14.
“I was over the moon and thought there was no way I would win because there were so many other amazing women in this category. I was really excited to get on that stage and accept. I was nervous but happier than I could have imagined, ”Morgan said.
Morgan looks to the future as “Girl FYI” begins to climb the charts and she embarks on her 2022 tour. Visit morganashleyoffical.com to find out when she will perform in a town near you.
