Thursday, October 5, 2023
– Morgan Evans is reimagining a country classic with "Thank God She's a Country Girl," out at midnight tonight.
The song is Evans' take on John Denver's "Thank God I'm a Country Boy." The Chris DeStefano-produced track was written by Evans, Jesse Frasure and John Sommers .
"Making this song has just been pure fun from start to finish," said Evans. "It was an absolute pleasure to rework such a classic song and, with the approval of John Martin Sommers, the writer of 'Thank God I'm A Country Boy,' I'm stoked to put this one out into the world! I hope it puts a smile on your face and gets your feet moving wherever in the world you are."

The tour follows his recent EP release of the same name, "Life Upside Down ," a five-track collection that focuses on his divorce from Kelsea Ballerini and starting life again.
