ARISTA NASHVILLE GOES "WILD" FOR WADE


Randy Goodman
's Sony Music Nashville has signed buzzing singer/songwriter Morgan Wade to Arista Nashville. Named one of the best songs of 2021 by Vulture, "Wilder Days," the opening track from Wade's debut album, Reckless, will be serviced to Country radio this fall.

Released March 19, Reckless has earned rave reviews from the BBC, American Songwriter, The Tennessean, The Boot/Taste of Country and more. The 26-year-old artist collaborated with producers Paul Ebersold and Sadler Vaden to develop songs she'd been working on throughout her twenties.

Following opening stints with Ashley McBryde and American Aquarium, she will join Lucero for the band’s fall tour.

Speaking of ink, Morgan sports a pretty impressive collection of tats. In a related story, a HITS editor just got an oversized tattoo of his bong.
