Kelsea Ballerini’s main squeeze Morgan Evans wants to "Kiss Somebody"

Kelsea Ballerini's main squeeze Morgan Evans wants to "Kiss Somebody"Warner Nashville/Robby KleinSo far, we’ve gotten to know Australian Morgan Evans mainly as Kelsea Ballerini’s fiancé, and through his mega-mashup covers of established hitmakers. But Friday, we’ll get our first taste of his own music, as Morgan releases his first single for Warner Nashville, titled “Kiss Somebody.”

On his socials, Morgan teases a special “prelude” video that’s coming as well. Inspired by the song’s lyric “sometimes you’ve got to kiss somebody in the back of a cab,” the new clip finds Morgan performing the tune in a vintage taxi, as he rides around Music City on a hot summer night.

As for the person Morgan happens to be kissing in real life, Kelsea has teased that the two definitely plan to make their union official before 2017 comes to a close.
