Newlyweds Morgan Evans and Kelsea Ballerini had a memorable weekend getaway in Minneapolis for the Super Bowl, and it allowed Morgan to check something off his bucket list. Being Australian, Evans admits the Super Bowl was the very first NFL game he'd ever attended and he calls it an "incredible, incredible experience."
"We got invited up by the family that owns Kelsea's record label and it was a last-minute invite," Morgan told ABC Radio at Monday's Country Radio Seminar in Nashville. "And of course, we were like, 'We're free those days? Yes! Let's go!' It was the ultimate spectacle."
The biggest highlight for the singers was seeing Justin Timberlake's Super Bowl halftime show live in person. As Morgan explains, there were several different stage setups that you could would only see if you were there in person.
"We could see like, 'Woah, they're going from over there to over there,' and you see all the people run over and then when he ran into the crowd, everyone went ballistic!" Morgan recalls. "As someone that makes music to connect with people, the idea of playing to that many people is insane, and I don't even know how many people were watching it...some ridiculous number of millions."
He adds, "It's aspiring and inspiring and, I guess, more like respect, too. That guy's been doing it for a long time and he's still at the highest level. And the hits that he played span such a long time, as well."
The spring, Morgan will be hitting the road with Chris Young and Kane Brown; this week, Kelsea kicks off a headline tour with Walker Hayes as a supporting act.
