Morgan Evans Talks Music, Fans Abroad and Immigration

“Kiss Somebody” Singer Recalls First Nashville Gig

Visiting with “Kiss Somebody” singer and Australian native Morgan Evans is a glimpse into the lives of musicians who immigrate to the U.S. to pursue their craft.

Fans around the world know Evans as a monster talent, and to his wife, Kelsea Ballerini, he’s the love of her life (the two married in Mexico on Dec. 2). But to the U.S. government, Evans is “an alien of extraordinary ability.”

“That’s what’s on my visa,” Evans told during a visit to the network’s headquarters. “That’s my official title. It takes a long time to gain citizenship. I think that’s what most of the people who are not from America working in the music industry would be considered legally as. It takes a long time to gain citizenship.”
