NPR's Scott Simon, Dierks Bentley and Lori McKenna on debut LP

October 9, 2018

"Morgan's solo debut is a testament to the vulnerability that writing songs for other demands." - NPR Weekend Edition


“Heather is one of the most magical writers I’ve ever had the chance to write with.” 

- Lori McKenna 

"listening on my way from San Fran to Sacramento today and loving it" 

- Dierks Bentley




Nashville-based songwriter Heather Morgan recently spoke with NPR Weekend Edition host Scott Simon about the "no girls" rule, fear and vulnerability, and her debut album ‘Borrowed Heart,’ out now. Full conversation


Trending all weekend and currently sitting at No. 2 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter chart, the record "mirrors what must be loaned during the collaborative process" (NPR Weekend Edition). Produced by Paul Moak and featuring co-writes with Lori McKenna, Trent Dabbs, frequent collaborator Ross Copperman and others, the 12-song set was entirely written or co-written by Morgan, a BMI Country Song of The Year Award writer.



The Texas-native will perform an album release show in Nashville on Tues., Oct. 9 in Nashville, followed by a home-state show in Dallas later this month. Morgan will also open for Scotty McCreery on his “Seasons Change” tour.
