It’s the most wonderful time of the year – and I don’t mean Christmas, I mean that magical month where we can blast holiday music and no one can judge us for it! Because, let’s face it, who doesn’t love Christmas music all year round?! This December, we are going to be adding our Songs of the Day to our very special Countrytown Christmas Playlist, complete with re-imagined country-style holiday classics as well as what are sure to be new festive favourites!

Our festive Song of the Day is Christmas In The Sun by Australian-born, Nashville-based singer-songwriter, Morgan Evans. Written by Evans alongside Jimmy Robbins and Parker Welling, the beachy tune exudes the kind of warmth and joy that makes this holiday so special worldwide.

Evans explained, “Growing up in Australia all I knew was Christmas in the sun. Sure, we sang all the American Christmas songs and watched all the American Christmas movies but in reality, we were hanging by the beach or the pool, cooking outside on the barbie and enjoying the heat of summer! I’ve missed home a lot the last couple of years and this song, to me, sounds like Christmas in Australia.”

Last year, Evans released his version of the Mariah Carey classic, All I Want For Christmas Is You.

He said, "I honestly can't think of a song that consistently makes me feel as good as All I Want For Christmas Is You makes me feel. In my version, I wanted to make it feel like Christmas felt to me growing up in Australia - it was at the beach, it was catching up with friends, it was all the family coming back to the hometown and catching up around a bonfire. It was really laid back, and I think after this year we could all use a little more 'laid back' in our lives."

To date, Evans has earned nearly 610 million global career streams and is currently touring the US on Brett Eldredge’s Good Day 2021 Tour. He has been married to fellow country singer-songwriter and  author, Kelsea Ballerini since 2017. Evans will headline CMC Rocks QLD alongside Brad Paisley and Kane Brown in September and join Paisley’s first ever Australian/New Zealand tour in 2022.
