William Michael Morgan just a teenager when he headed to Nashville

”I was a green 19 year-old kid. I still remember it like it was yesterday. We got my car all cleaned up, checked the engines, oil change and everything. I still remember my mom crying, hugging me, kissing me; dad shaking my hand and saying, “you be careful now, boy.” I get chills thinking about that, man. I ended up crashing on my manager’s house for about a month or two before I ended up finding a place. It was a very different scene. Mama wasn’t there to help me. I’ve grown up a lot. I grew up fast. I still had a great childhood, but I grew up so much faster than people my age. A lot of people my age are still trying to find themselves in the college scene and whatnot. I skipped all that. I just wanted to make music.”
