Megan Moroney Dishes on Her CMA Awards Red Carpet Date
The two-time CMA nominee (New Artist and Song of the Year for "Tennessee Orange") is also performing on Wednesday night (8PM on ABC). It's a year of firsts for Georgian.
- Moroney's debut album Lucky dropped in May, to critical acclaim.
- "I'm Not Pretty" (Top 40) is her current radio single.
- She won the CMT Female Breakthrough Video of the Year earlier this year.
Don't expect her to introduce a boyfriend for the first time, however. Her escort is much more important than any boyfriend could be.
"My dad is coming with me as my date," Moroney tells Taste of Country backstage ahead of the CMA Awards. "Just thinking about how he taught me how to play guitar and got me into music ... The fact that he gets to be my date, it's just crazy."
Mr. Moroney will be on hand to witness his daughter's first CMAs performance. She's going to sing "Can't Break Up Now" with Old Dominion, as heard on the group's new Memory Lane album.
She admits she's very nervous for that moment, but very confident about her red carpet fit.
"Oh, she's gonna slay." Moroney says. "Think dramatic and like, big slay."
*Remember: The best way to watch the CMA Awards is on ABC with ToC on your phone.
