Morgan Evans just wrapped up opening for Dan + Shay on the first leg of their sold-out Dan+ Shay Tour which we caught earlier this year at Hammerstein Ballroom, and it seems like he is already missing the duo. In a newly released video, Evans shows what happens when you take his hit song “Day Drunk” and mix it with Grammy-winning song “Tequila”.
Accompanied by a looping pedal and acoustic guitar, the mashup starts with the Australian-native showing off his beatboxing talent. He then goes into singing the first verse of “Tequila,” hits the pedal to go right into “Day Drunk,” then switches it back just in time for the “Tequila” chorus. “Tequila” was written by Dan Smyers, Jordan Reynolds, and Nicolle Galyon while Evans co-wrote“Day Drunk” with Chris DeStefano and Lindy Robbins. With a similar rhythm, these two great songs flow right into one another without skipping a beat. If you didn’t know the two songs were separate, you would think this was an original song.
In a recent press release, Rolling Stone called the mashup a “summery slam dunk.” And we couldn’t agree more. It’s a great tune to play at your bonfire or BBQ this season!
Evans isn’t slowing down anytime soon. He’ll not only be making appearances at a few festivals, including Carolina Festival, but the singer-songwriter is also hitting the road with Rascal Flatts on their Summer Playlist Tour. The artist doesn’t stop there, in the fall he will be headlining a run of shows over in Europe.
Evans is certainly making a name for himself in the country music genre, and we can’t wait to see what the talented singer does next. Watch Evans work his magic on this mash-up and his pedal loop above.
