About The Event
Growing up on a cattle farm in rural Georgia, Reid Morris was immersed in country culture. Being the fourth generation in the same farming community, Reid helped plant watermelons with his grandparents on his great grandfather's farm with the same breed of seeds his great grandfather planted, worked on an-tique cars with his grandfather, headed cattle, fixed fences, and went hunting and fishing. Reid first fell in love with music in church. He recalls singing hymns at a very young age and enjoying how it made him feel. That led to singing along to an Alan Jackson CD in the tractor feeding cows with his dad. Eventually, Reid got a guitar and started taking lessons from the worship pastor at church. He started playing and singing in the church youth band and school talent shows very quickly. By the age of 15, he was playing four hour country sets at local restaurants for tips. Through the years, Reid has played numerous full band and acoustic shows throuought the southeast. As a senior in high school, Reid was making trips to Nashville to write and record his debut EP that was released in 2019.
