Megan Moroney is hard at work on her forthcoming, full-length debut album.
The rising star gave fans an update on the project via Instagram on Monday alongside a photo and a video clip from the studio.
“my first full record is on the way🍀 happy to announce it’s country as shit 🍀🍀🍀,” she captioned the post.
The photo showed the singer/songwriter inside the control room of the studio, while the video offered a snippet of the musicians recording their parts of the record.
Sugarland’s Kristian Bush, who produced her previously released EP, Pistol Made Of Roses, could be seen sitting behind the mixer bobbing his head along to the music.
Moroney gave fans another look at her time in the recording studio via Instagram stories with a clip from inside the studio which had been decorated for Christmas.
A common thread throughout her posts was the four-leaf clover emoji which led some fans to believe she was dropping a major hint about the project.
“St. Patrick’s Weekend release? 👀,” wrote one fan.
March 17, 2023 just happens to be a Friday, however, Moroney has yet to confirm the theory.
Megan Moroney’s latest album update comes just weeks after she confirmed that she signed a record deal with Sony Music/ Columbia Records.
She made the exciting announcement at Nashville’s Brooklyn Bowl when opening for Warren Zeiders and later revealed the news on Instagram.
“I can’t believe this is even an announcement I get to make.. but I signed a record deal last week with Sony Music!!!! it’s because of y’all’s support that I was able to handpick the right team of people for me & my vision so THANK YOU!!! My first full length album is written and I start recording in the studio next month… I’m so excited for the next chapter, love y’all so much!!!! ❤️🧡😭🥳,” she wrote.
Moroney’s breakout hit, “Tennessee Orange,” is at country radio now. The song earned additional adds this week and is currently at No.47 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart.
“Tennessee Orange” went viral upon its release to streaming platforms as fans continue to question who the modern-day love song is about.
While she has remained relatively tight-lipped about the situation, she did confirm that the Tennessee shirt she was pictured wearing did in fact belong to Morgan Wallen when she was interviewed by Sirius XM’s The Highway recently.
“All of my songs are very much me. I write from the heart. And that will never change,” she shared with PEOPLE. “I don’t try to write songs that other artists could cut because they’re so specific to me and what I’ve gone through.”
Megan Moroney will embark on her first-ever headlining tour next year. Dubbed the Pistol Made Of Roses Tour, the trek will feature support from Logan Crosby. Many of the upcoming dates have already sold out.
Fans can also catch Moroney on several festivals next year, including Tortuga Music Festival and Tidalwave Music Festival.
