EMI Records Nashville’s Kylie Morgan is set to release her debut EP Love, Kylie on Friday (June 11th) – pre-order the new album HERE.
Kylie co-wrote all six songs on her new EP and reveals a transparency and vulnerability that compels listeners to peel back the layers of her story.
“My brand-new and very first EP, Love, Kylie, is so important to me. I wanted to be able to put into words the emotions that you don’t know how to explain. Every song is from me to you,” says Kylie.
Produced by Shane McAnally and Ben Johnson, Kylie details her journey through relationships, life as an artist, and life experiences.
When it came time to name the EP, Kylie reached back to her early publishing pitches for inspiration. She named the EP Love, Kylie, which was the way she ended each pitch email. She found the sign-off made people feel like they were friends, and that’s how she hopes they feel listening to the EP. “It’s a pretty vulnerable state,” she said of releasing her first collection of songs. “I realized that every song that I’ve been writing has been either about me, about my family, about a friend, about someone I know. I wanted the whole EP to feel like a cohesive story and for every song to feel like a chapter.”
Kylie, a vivacious, auburn-haired spitfire with a powerful voice, a sharp songwriting pen and a keen sense of her artistry, released her new song “I Only Date Cowboys” a couple of weeks ago. The fiery new track is vintage Kylie, giving listeners a glimpse into her personality – listen HERE. Additionally, Kylie released her official music video for the lead track on the EP, “Shoulda,” a heavy up-tempo with a sassy, rapid-fire vocal about the should’ve known betters when dabbling with an ex – watch HERE.

Kylie Morgan (I Only Date Cowboys) OC: …cowboy hat. :27
“My song ‘I Only Date Cowboys’ was thought of when my boyfriend backed up a trailer for the very first time and I was super impressed. I knew that that was a trait that he learned on the farm, and I knew that so many girls would find that attractive. (laughs) I wrote the song ‘I Only Date Cowboys’ in hopes to target that certain audience that can’t say no to a guy in a cowboy hat.”
