Buzzworthy new artist Megan Moroney debuts her latest track today, “I’m Not Pretty.” Listen to the song and watch the visualizer HERE.
Written by Moroney alongside Ben Williams, Micah Carpenter, and Mackenzie Carpenter, the track is a quippy take on the singer’s own experience of an ex-boyfriend’s new girlfriend scrolling through her Instagram and accidentally liking an old photo.
“It’s a mostly true story (you can find the spring break throwback pic on my Instagram) but not meant to be taken too seriously,” Moroney said. “I think everyone can relate to somebody keeping tabs on them on social media. It was fun to write and it’s fun to sing and hopefully will become an anthem for the girls.”
Earlier this year, the “musical risktaker with powerhouse pipes” (CMT) shared the music video for her hit song “Tennessee Orange.” Watch here. The track was recently the #1 weekly streamed song by a solo female country artist and has amassed over 120 million total global on-demand streams to date. It’s currently climbing the country radio charts.
Following an explosive 2022 led by the success of “Tennessee Orange,” Moroney was dubbed as a “2023 Artist to Watch” by Amazon, Spotify, Pandora, and Country Now, as well as one of CMT’s Next Women of Country for 2023. Additionally, she was crowned the “2022 New Artist of the Year” by Country Central and named one of SiriusXM’s “2023 Future Five.” Holler predicted that her “smooth, honeyed voice that combines with a casual, conversational charm [will] make her one to watch in 2023.”
Moroney recently toured alongside artists such as Larry Fleet, Jamey Johnson, and Warren Zeiders, and is now set to launch her headlining PISTOL MADE OF ROSES tour this spring and open for country music icons Brooks & Dunn this summer. For dates and additional info, visit meganmoroney.com.
Born and raised in Georgia, Moroney grew up in a musical household heavily influenced by legendary songwriters in classic country, southern rock, and americana. During her freshman year at the University of Georgia, an opportunity to open for an established country artist at the iconic Georgia Theatre prompted Moroney to write her very first original song. From there, she developed a love for storytelling and has become known for her distinctive voice and honest, conversational lyrics.
