ARISTA NASHVILLE GOES "WILD" FOR WADE
8/9/21


Randy Goodman
's Sony Music Nashville has signed buzzing singer/songwriter Morgan Wade to Arista Nashville. "Wilder Days," the opening track from Wade's album Reckless, will be serviced to country radio in the fall.

Wade's debut project Reckless, released in early 2021, has earned rave reviews from BBC, American Songwriter, The Tennessean, The Boot/Taste of Country and more. The 26-year old collaborated with Paul Ebersold and Sadler Vaden to develop and complete songs Wade had worked on throughout her twenties.

Following opening stints with Ashley McBryde and American Aquarium, Wade will join Lucero for the band’s fall tour. Lead single "Wilder Days" was named one of 2021's best songs by Vulture.
