The Americans, nominated in the International Act of the Year (Touring) award category, have also been invited to perform and to present an award to another of the evening’s hopefuls. The entertainers made quite a name for themselves on this side of the pond in June as London openers for superstar Dionne Warwick at the David Gest Memorial Concert. In appreciation of their international fans’ support and the gracious attentions of the BCMA, the siblings will release a new single, “Just Like In The Movies,” exclusively to all UK radio outlets on September 1st…the same day that member voting begins for the BCMA Awards.
Following the awards show they will embark on a promotional radio tour that includes select performances in Scotland.
The Morris sisters hail from the small town of Cleveland, Mississippi in the heart of the Delta, the home of Blues and Rock & Roll. Natalia (principal songwriter, guitarist, lead vocalist), Christina (drums) and Hannah (bass) are Southern Halo…and they’ve created their own signature sound that offers a blend of multiple Country styles, current Alt. Pop vibes and a dash of Southern Rock. It’s youthful, energetic music – made immediately recognizable by the sweet familial harmonies that have become Southern Halo’s trademark. Noted music critic Robert K. Oermann of MusicRow Magazine says the sisters “harmonize like angels.”
In addition to their incredible harmonies, the girls lay it all on the line with high-energy stage shows during opening sets for top-tier acts and as headliners. To date, they’ve kicked off shows for Warwick, Brantley Gilbert, Eric Paslay, Maren Morris, Love and Theft, Tyler Farr, Randy Houser, John Michael Montgomery, Parmalee, Old Dominion, Jamie Lynn Spears, Craig Campbell, Uncle Kracker, Julie Roberts, American Young and B.B. King.
Last year they made their CMA Music Festival debut with appearances on two separate stages, were named Nashville Universe’s Vocal Group of the Year 2016, performed at an elite pre-Grammy Awards show in Los Angeles, and launched Townsquare Media’s “Say It With Pepsi” Concert Series.
They returned to CMA Music Festival again this year, and have enjoyed a jam-packed schedule since then.
