This spring, rising country star, Kylie Morgan will be hitting the road for her first-ever headlining Independent With You Tour. This upcoming 10-date trek will take Morgan to both coasts and several other cities across the country.
The tour is named after her viral track, “Independent With You,” which is featured on recent EP, P.S., along with her debut single that has surpassed 50 MILLION global streams, “If He Wanted To He Would.” Morgan served as a co-writer on each of the seven tracks on the project.
“This still doesn’t feel real,” Morgan shared. “I’m calling this the Independent With You Tour because of all of YOU (the fans) believing in this independent, small town Oklahoma girl. You’ve been on this journey with me every step, and every lyric, and I am where I am because of you. I can’t wait to squeeze you and sing OUR songs together.”
At the end of her exciting announcement on social media, Morgan teased that fans can definitely expect more new music from her in the months ahead.
“Also…literally can’t wait for you to hear the new music coming! 2023 is going to be 🔥” she added on social media.
Throughout her previously released songs like “Independent With You” and “If He Wanted To He Would,” country music fans got the chance to know the EMI Records Nashville singer/songwriter better and understand the stories behind her beautifully raw artistry.
She and her husband, Jay Allen, took their followers on their journey of falling in love, getting engaged, and planning a wedding that was delayed due to the devastation of Hurricane Ian.
The couple was originally set to get married in October, but after a shift in their plans, they finally tied the knot on Sunday, November 27 at La Casa Toscana in Fort Myers, Florida.
Exclusive behind-the-scenes footage of this magical day was used to portray the real story behind Morgan’s heartfelt lyrical letter to her father, “Good Hands.” The sentimental music video captures once-in-a-lifetime moments between her and her father including the first look, saying “I do” to Allen, the father-daughter dance, and more.
The video opens with Morgan admiring her stunning white dress before having a series of emotional moments with her dad before he leads her down the aisle and gives her away to Allen. After the ceremony, the lovebirds are seen dancing the night away as husband and wife.
“I’m in good hands when he’s holdin’ on to mine / I know who I am when I look in his eyes / And he only sees the best in me, even when it’s hard to find / He’s a good man / I’m in good hands,” she delivers in the chorus.
Written by Kylie alongside Ben Johnson and Emily Shackleton, “Good Hands” is a comforting promise to her dad that she has found a man that will care for her and love her just as her dad has done for her. The song is featured on her recently released, wedding-inspired EP, Songs To Say I Do.
Fans will get to hear these fan-favorites and more on Kylie Morgan’s Independent With You Tour, which kicks off on April 6 in San Diego, CA at Moonshine Beach. She will wrap things up on April 29 in Kansas City, MO at Tin Roof.
Before embarking on her headlining trek, Morgan will be performing in Oklahoma City on February 23 and St. Louis on March 23.
