Country Thunder - Iowa Day 2

Country Thunder - Iowa Day 2

The pouring rain didn’t stop newcomer John Morgan from taking the Country Thunder stage on day two.

“Y’all ready.?”

Morgan shared his first single Coldest Beer In Town that he released after signing with Jason Aldean’s Night Train Records this year. Morgan also performed two Jason Aldean songs he co-wrote, Trouble With A Heartbreak and Grammy-nominated number one single If I Didn’t Love You by Aldean and Carrie Underwood. Morgan closed his rainy set with his soon-to-be-released single Ain’t Been There Yet.
