Country singer-songwriter Kylie Morgan teams with Walker Hayes on relatable 'Cuss a Little'
Newcastle native and EMI Nashville recording artist Kylie Morgan recently released a relatable new song called “Cuss a Little,” featuring fellow SMACKSongs songwriter Walker Hayes.
The catchy, tongue-in-cheek tune showcases Morgan’s authentic and natural storytelling ability.
“'Cuss A Little'” is truthfully me, no filter,” Morgan says in a statement. “I wrote it when I was 19 with Walker Hayes, someone who has seen me grow since the beginning. This song has always meant a lot to me and I’m so glad I finally get to share it with others.”
As previously reported, the Oklahoma native starting writing songs at the age of 12 and gained national attention from music producers and television executives after releasing her music independently. This early success led Morgan to begin making regular trips to Nashville, crafting her voice and polishing her songwriting. When she turned 19, she made the decision to call Music City home.
“I can’t believe Kylie was in her teens when we wrote this. Even crazier how it has stood the test time. I know this song and the way she and Shane were able to bring it together will most definitely meet people where they are and make them pull over. I did when I heard it the first time,” Hayes says in a statement.
Recognizing Kylie’s unique talent, the SMACKSongs team signed her to their roster under the guidance of Grammy Award-winning songwriters Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne.
As previously reported, Morgan recently released another autobiographical song, “Break Things,” which has continued to accumulate impressive streaming numbers since its debut.
