Don’t know much about this Nashville up-and-comer? Read on for five things to know about Miss Morgan Myles, as she prefers to call herself.
She’s a Northerner ...
Now based in Nashville, Myles is a native of Williamsport, Pa. She moved to Nashville in 2009 to pursue an education and career in music, and the rest is, well, history, but it was in the Quaker State that Myles first began playing music at the ripe old age of three.
“I’d sit down at the piano and just start singing and playing,” Myles told CMT in 2018. “I think it’s just always been in my soul. Music is my therapy, my passion and my happiness. It’s never wavered.”
... Who Moved to Nashville to Study the Music Business ...
Myles has been interested in the music business since she was a teenager; as a high schooler, she interned at agencies responsible for writing advertising jingles. A little more than a decade ago, Myles enrolled at Nashville’s vaunted Belmont University to study at the Mike Curb College of Entertainment & Music Business. Before that, though, she studied music at the Berklee School of Music in Boston, Mass., for a year.

In recent years, Myles has even gotten to share the stage with some of her idols, including McEntire.
She's Planning to Drop Her Debut EP in 2019
In 2018, Myles released the buzzy single “Acapella” to positive critical reviews. She followed it with the upbeat “Know Love,” and even more new music is on the way in 2019. Myles is currently working on a brand-new EP.
