Megan Moroney needs to be on your radar. The up-and-comer is paving the way for future artists with her unique sound, and established stars like Carly Pearce have even said she's their favorite new artist.
I recently had the chance to sit down for a long conversation with Moroney, and among other things, we talked about her love for Miranda Lambert. That came from when I asked her who her dream collaboration would be with. I then asked her if she has ever had the chance to meet Lambert before, and the story she told is priceless:
"I did. I accidentally stepped on her at Red Door. This was when I was visiting Nashville. I had just gotten my fake ID taken at Nudies on Broadway, but somehow Red Door let me in with my second backup fake ID (laughs). I was in there, I was literally in sweat pants. I stepped back and I stepped on someone on accident and I turn around like, "Oh my God, I'm so sorry." And it was Miranda Lambert. I was like, "I am really so sorry."
She says Miranda had on a hat and glasses, so it was hard to tell who she was, but Moroney knew.
I had to know if she had any other run-ins with country artists before she herself became famous.
"I've met Kacey Musgraves with one shoe on," Moroney told me (listen below), to which I replied: "You had one shoe or she did?"
"I had one shoe on, because I had just gotten knee surgery, so I had this really big cast thing on my leg —so I had one cowgirl boot on," she confirmed.

It would seem as if 'making it' in country music requires running into another country artist first — literally. Luke Combs told me awhile back about the time he ran into Vince Gill on accident coming down a set of stairs at a concert venue in Nashville, before Luke was famous.
Megan Moroney is currently on tour, and she is releasing her debut album, Lucky, on May 5.
