In 2023, Morgan released his EP Life Upside Down, which featured the single “Over For You” as its trigger. He then went on tour in support of the album, making a triumphant return to his hometown last year for the Life Upside Down Tour. With tremendous demand, the ARIA Award-winner sold out several dates throughout key Australian cities, including two nights at the renowned Sydney Opera House. What started as seven headline gigs ended with a massive fourteen appearances. The upcoming live CD by Morgan, which was recorded in September at the Sydney Opera House, will be released in the near future.

Even though he’s constantly on the go, Morgan never stops making music. On his most recent Australian tour, he released a duet with Kita Alexander called “Date Night.” Also in 2023, he put his own twist on the John Denver classic “Thank God She’s A Country Girl,” and he released a Christmas single called “Christmas In The Backyard” to cap off his hectic year.

Tami Neilson Records New Single At Willie’s Luck Ranch

Published

on

One of Tami’s favourite songs from Willie Nelson’s vast library, “Sister’s Coming Home,” would be the perfect way to commemorate her homecoming to the legendary Luck Reunion Festival that takes place on his ranch. Featuring the talented Nicky Diamonds, a native Texan and member of The Black Opry, and produced by the legendary Pedernales Studio’s own GRAMMY winner Steve Chadie, Tami gushed about how meaningful it was to record this song for a number of reasons:

“Growing up performing in a family band, I’ve always loved this song from a sibling perspective. This track documents the first time me and my two brothers have recorded music together in 25 years. It wasn’t planned- Jay performs and tours with me regularly and our little brother Todd creates my visuals and has produced many of my music videos and album covers throughout my career. Todd was there to film and document this project- which was supposed to be just Jay and I recording a little acoustic love letter to Willie for his 90th birthday present. We walked into the studio and Chadie had scavenged around the studio for some percussion and rustled up a kick, snare and a floor tom- (no cymbals a la Willie!) I asked Todd if he would mind hopping on the makeshift kit and The Neilson Family was reunited once again!”

In 2023, following their unexpected live performance of “Beyond the Stars” at Luck Reunion in 2022, Tami and Willie took home the trophy for “BEST COUNTRY SONG 2023” from the Country Music Awards in New Zealand. Neilson has informed Willie that she will be bringing the plaque to give him for his collection. “You know, just in case he wants to display it alongside his fourteen Grammys!” she exclaims while laughing.

“Sister’s Coming Home” is the first release for Neilson since her award-winning album “Kingmaker” stunned fans and press alike in 2022.

“Neilson is at the forefront of the women who are taking back country music. This is the Album of the Year”
