Morgan Johnston - The End

Massachusetts-born and Nashville-based, Morgan Johnston is a rising star in country music. Her new singleย The End is already receiving plenty of attention and favourable reviews with a viral TikTok video and an airing on the ‘Nights With Elaina’ radio show as host Elaina Smith’s ‘TikTok Pick Of The Week.’ Internationally, UK-based DJ Baylen Leonard has selected the track as his ‘spotlight single of the week’ on Absolute Country Radio.ย The End is one of four singles to be released this year, culminating in the release of a 7-song LP due in autumn.

 

Driven by strummed guitars and anchored by a subtle hand-clapping percussion, The End is a soft and sentimental mid-tempo track. It perfectly encapsulates the nervous excitement of meeting ‘the one’. Where I initially imagined ‘the end’ to be an ending, Johnston surprises and subverts expectation by declaring it to be ‘the end’ of heartbreak and a search for love. It’s sweet and flirty, a dreamy summer night ballad with the makings of a breakout hit. For Johnston – who plays regularly with the Song Suffragettes in Nashville, and has also supported names Lainey Wilson and Dustin Lynch – The End is only the beginning.

 

THE END is available for pre-save here ahead of its 20th May release. Follow Morgan on Facebook and Instagram, or visit her website.
