Who is John Morgan?

John Morgan, who wrote songs for country superstar Jason Aldean, lives in Nashville, Tennessee, but was born in Sylva, North Carolina. He’s dedicated his life to music and moved to Nashville, Tennessee. Morgan grew up surrounded by bluegrass music and began songwriting with inspiration from six-string legends like Tony Rice and John Mayer. A series of events involving an Uber driver and a writing session with two of Aldean's bandmates resulted in him writing eight songs for the superstar, including 'If I Didn’t Love You,' a smash hit featuring Carrie Underwood.


Morgan's debut track, 'Coldest Beer in Town,' was released in 2021 while he toured the nation with Aldean during his 'Back in the Saddle' tour. In his official 'American Song Contest' biography, Morgan describes his music style as bringing "a blue-collar toughness to a country that’s pulled straight from the only life he knows."
