Morgan Frazier: Life on the "Yellow Brick Road"

by Kevin Wierzbicki

.
She's barely 20-years-old, blond and beautiful and with a penchant for writing and singing hook-laden country tunes that are radio and CMT ready, so it's only natural that Morgan Frazier is being labeled the "next Taylor Swift."

Frazier's new Sidewalk/Curb release, an EP called Yellow Brick Road, features the identically-titled single "Yellow Brick Road" where the young singer uses a Wizard of Oz theme to poke fun at guys who don't have a heart or are afraid of commitment (cowardly) or, as Morgan knowingly puts it, "Don't have a brain in their head."

The cover graphic for the EP depicts Frazier prevailing over these would-be suitors though; the romantically-challenged fellows are represented by an Oz-referencing scarecrow that's knocked-out cold at Frazier's feet. The whole concept reflects Frazier's playful personality but that doesn't mean she isn't completely serious when it comes to her career.

Frazier signed her recording contract with Curb at 16 but she put out her first CD Cowboy Boots, a collection of covers such as "Me and Bobby McGee" and "San Antonio Rose," at the tender age of nine. She's now co-writing songs with elite Nashville tunesmiths like George Strait's go-to-guy Dean Dillon and Jim "Moose" Brown, a member of Bob Seger's band and the co-writer of massive hit "Five O'clock Somewhere."

To top it all off, a song Frazier co-wrote, "All We Never Had is Gone," has just won the John Lennon Songwriting Contest in the country category. "That was so cool," says Frazier. "I had written a song with a friend of mine (Jim Bennett) and we had kind of lost touch a little bit; I've been on the road a lot. He called me up and said 'hey, we won the country division for the John Lennon Songwriting Contest' and I'm like 'the what?' I had no idea he'd even entered us in it so it was a big shocker to me. And now we're up for Song of the Year competing against all 12 genres."

Frazier will find out September 1st if "All We Never Had is Gone" takes the big prize and decide at that point if the song will be on her debut full-length album that she's currently writing material for; in the meantime there's no doubt that with "Yellow Brick Road" she's already on a pretty fantastic path.
