Morgan Evans Detailed His First Kiss with Kelsea Ballerini and Gets Super Excited When You Remind Him That He’s Getting Married

If you didn’t know– Kelsea Ballerini and fiancé Morgan Evans first met in Australia while hosting the CMC Awards in 2016. By the end of the year, the two were engaged.

During Morgan’s first CMA Awards red carpet Morgan was asked about his first kiss with Kelsea. Turns out, it happened pretty quickly after they met. But, don’t worry– it wasn’t the first day or anything, “I do. It was in a little rockabilly country bar, in a city called Brisbane in Australia and it was after the awards show we hosted together… well, I mean, we had been rehearsing a couple of days, so it was after show day.”


Morgan also shared that their chemistry was undeniable from the very beginning and they knew they were right for each other from the start, “Yeah, I mean, I knew who she was before we met and it became apparent so quickly. She went home on Tuesday and I went home on a Wednesday and I said, ‘what are you doing Wednesday night? I’ll take you out Wednesday night.”

We caught up with Morgan on the red carpet before the BMI Awards and got to remind him that he’s excited for 2018 because he’s going to be a married man. His smile says it all.

Morgan Evans Has Won So Many Awards He Can’t Even Remember Them All

Morgan Evans may not be nominated for a CMA Award tonight but the Australian singer has a history of winning in country music. He was the 2016 CMA Global Artist of the Year and has won five fan voted Country Music Channel Awards, including Male Artist of the Year. Those facts are surprising to him as well.


We caught up with Evans on the BMI Country Awards red carpet to play a game of True or False with some of his most notable achievements. When we asked him about his Music Row Discovery Award, he looked like he had just found out he won.

“All this is funny, but it’s true,” he laughed.

Evans then reflected what it meant to him to be a part of the BMI Awards, a night that celebrates songwriters and publishers.

“Tonight is the perfect representation of why, out of anywhere in the world, I moved here. I feel like this is a song town and tonight is a celebration of that.”
