Morgan Evans Gets ‘Day Drunk’ on Dan + Shay’s ‘Tequila’ in New Mash-up [WATCH]
Australian country import Morgan Evans uses a little studio trickery and lyrical ingenuity to combine his own single "Day Drunk" with Dan + Shay's award-winning hit "Tequila" in a recently unveiled video. Press play above to watch.
Although he's working with pre-written lyrics, Evans shows off the quick instincts of a freestyle rapper as he effortlessly glides between songs in this mash-up. Simultaneously, he's the laptop recording generation's equivalent of a one-man band, combining the songs' similar beats and themes while balancing their differences courtesy of loop pedals. Even if you'd much rather see a honky-tonk ensemble in action, you've got to admit that Evans' side hustle as a musical mad scientist requires talent.
This "Day Drunk" / "Tequila" mash-up is the latest in singer and guitarist Evans' #MEmashup series, which dates back to the summer of 2017. His "women of country" medley is still the gold standard. It blends songs by Carrie Underwood, Miranda Lambert, Maren Morris and, of course, Evans' wife, Kelsea Ballerini.
Morgan's downtime for creating mashups will be limited this summer, when he'll be touring extensively with Rascal Flatts, on the country trio's Summer Playlist Tour. For more details, check out Evans' website.
