Country music is at its best when  youthful energy carries tradition forward. It’s what the likes of Dwight  Yoakam, Ricky Skaggs and Garth Brooks brought to the format, and it’s  what fans and critics alike are looking for in modern-day country.

Look  no further than William Michael Morgan. That  fresh-take-on-a-classic-sound approach was apparent when he was a  14-year-old playing four sets a night of Haggard, Strait and Waylon in  Mississippi honky-tonks that had “everything but the chicken wire,” and  it’s apparent now in his debut album, Vinyl. Throughout its 11 songs, he  brings a voice and manner older than his 23 years to bear on music  written by him and many of today’s best tunesmiths.

It’s a  combination summed up in the album’s title track, a song about new love  as vintage, as fresh and timeless as the vinyl that embodies a  lifetime’s worth of classic records—and a substance enjoying a  resurgence as young people everywhere savor its audio magic.
