Some artists are strongly opposed to performing covers, however Morgan always works in a little something extra into the set.
But whether it’s inviting up American Idol contestants to duet with, slowing down the tempo and doing some solo renditions on the piano, or in this case, covering some rock classics.
Of course, one of his biggest hits, “Cover Me Up,” is a Jason Isbell cover.
For his Tidal Wave Festival performance earlier this month, Morgan did a blast-to-the-past version of the Kings of Leon 2008 release, “Use Somebody.” And if that’s not enough to strike your fancy, he seamlessly transitioned over to Fall Out Boy’s 2005 hit, “Sugar, We’re Goin’ Down.”
Not only do these unique stylings show Morgan’s versatility, but they also remind us that he probably rocked out to these hits at his middle school dances as well, making him even more relatable to his fanbase.
And the short clip of his drummer having a blast on this part of the setlist says it all.
