The Georgia native recently shared a music video for her major label debut single “Tennessee Orange.” Shot from the perspective of Moroney’s love interest, the video plays out through his eyes as he spends time with her over breakfast, accompanies her for karaoke at Dee’s Country Cocktail Lounge, and joins her for a night on the town on Lower Broadway.

“I had so much fun making this video with Jason Lester!” Moroney previously said of the clip. “I think we could have taken this video in a few different directions, and I was so excited to film it from ‘his’ point of view. This song is about more than a football team and I think we captured the love story perfectly.”

Directed by Jason Lester, Moroney’s video concludes as the mystery man and the 25-year-old singer/songwriter recreate the buzzed-about Instagram photos that took the internet by storm, which Moroney shared in August of 2022. Moroney is seen wearing the Tennessee Volunteers t-shirt, that once belonged to Morgan Wallen.

She previously revealed that the shirt was in fact Morgan Wallen’s after fans speculated that the song was written with Wallen in mind. However, the Georgia native has yet to confirm or deny if the song was written about the “You Proof” singer.

Megan Moroney Recently Signed A Major Record Deal

In mid-November of 2022, the viral hitmaker announced that she signed a record deal with Sony Music/Columbia Records while performing to a sold-out crowd in Music City at Brooklyn Bowl Nashville.

“No one knows this at all. So here goes nothing,” she began. “Last week, I signed a record deal with Sony Music. I’m very thankful. I couldn’t have done it without all the people who have supported me so far. So thank you so much.”

She later took to Instagram to share the exciting news with fans who weren’t at the show.

“I can’t believe this is even an announcement I get to make… But I signed a record deal last week with Sony Music!!!!” Moroney captioned the video on Instagram. “It’s because of y’all’s support that I was able to handpick the right team of people for me & my vision, so THANK YOU!!! My first full-length album is written, and I start recording in the studio next month… I’m so excited for the next chapter, love y’all so much!!!! ❤️🧡😭🥳.”
