Morgan Evans Reveals Who He Wrote "Kiss Somebody" About

“Kiss Somebody” is currently No. 13 on the Mediabase chart.

(Undated)  --  Morgan Evans is revealing who he wrote his current hit single about, and it wasn't his wife. 

The rising country star and Aussie native says he did not write "Kiss Somebody" about Kelsea Ballerini. 

Evans says he penned the song for a friend who was going through a rough breakup. 

He explains, "It was inspired by a mate of mine, actually. I used to stay with him in Nashville before I moved here, and he went through this really rough breakup and he was devastated. And, I was with him through that period, and I went back to Australia. A year and a half later, I came back and he was still devastated over this situation. And, I was like, ‘Dude! You need to kiss somebody!’ And so, the lyrics kind of go, “Sometimes you’ve got to drink about somebody / Sometimes you’ve got to cry and miss somebody / Sometimes you’ve got to kiss somebody.’”

And then the song was born.
