Search Is On For the 2019-2020 TN Young Soloist Winner
If you are a young adult under the age of 25 who has vocal or instrumental abilities, you need to apply for the Young Soloist Competition.
To apply, participants complete an application and submit it online with a link to a Youtube video or a MP3 file. All applicants will be included in workshops and performance opportunities throughout the year.
Judges will select the top 4-6 participants who will be asked to perform at the Country Music Association on Thursday, Oct. 17 at 7pm. The winner will receive a cash prize, trophy, opportunity to record in a recording studio, and represent Tennessee in an international competition.
This year is a very special year to be part of this program as it is the 35th anniversary of the Young Soloist International Competition and we are also celebrating the 100th anniversary of RCA. The competition evening will be run similar to an old-time radio show. RCA will have a representative at the event to accept an award. Morgan Alexander will be at the event as a special guest performer and host.
Morgan has opened for Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town, Eric Church, John Michael Montgomery and various touring acts that came through Oregon. These opportunities ultimately led to Morgan’s decision to move to Nashville, Tennessee in 2009. Once in Nashville, he performed his first song on the famed stage at the Bluebird Cafe, and shortly after began working at WKDF-FM and Cumulus Media. Morgan still works as an on-air personality and producer for the various stations affiliated and owned by Cumulus; but music was his calling and true passion.
Since 2014, Morgan has performed nearly 150 shows each year locally and throughout the country. He has been featured on radio stations all over the world, including the famed 650AM WSM. In 2017, he also had his first radio release “Breaking My Heart,” which was number one for three weeks on the Country Internet Charts.
Morgan’s time in Nashville has also allowed him to continue to share the stage with some of country’s biggest talents. Collin Raye, Kellie Pickler, Stacey Mitchhart, Love and Theft, A Thousand Horses, Two Way Crossing, Stephanie Quayle, David Shelby, to name a few.
This program is supported by the Tennessee Arts Commission, First TN Bank Foundation, and Diane and Dr. David Black.
