William Michael Morgan's Real Country


By Bfrad Bohannan

Sometimes you have to take chances to make it in the country music business. William Micheal Morgan has done just that by being a 'real' singer singing 'real' country music.  What do I mean? This young artist doesn't need the back up singers to strengthen his voice, he doesn't need the light show, he doesn't need distracting dancers. He has a strong, solid voice and impeccable tastes in song choices. Think George Strait. To all the country fans that have been complaining about the style and quality of the country music, William Micheal Morgan is what you have been asking for.
