Charismatic entertainer Karen Waldrup is set to release “Me Again,” her most vulnerable and personal single to date, featuring William Michael Morgan on November 1. The single, penned by Waldrup and hit songwriters Danny Wells and Philip White, is a shout-out to all of those people that make a massive difference in the lives of others. 2018 was a very tough year personally and professionally for Waldrup but she had an incredible support system around her that really pushed and encouraged her to get back to herself.
“I couldn’t be more excited about the song because it’s a heartfelt sentiment for all my supporters that stuck with me through some of the hardest times of my life” explains Waldrup. “Everybody who believed in me continued to believe in me despite circumstances and ‘Me Again’ was born in response to that.”
Waldrup began performing “Me Again” during her live shows this summer and garnered countless standing ovations which prompted her to record the song. Waldrup teamed up with award-winning producer Dave Brainard to create the hauntingly beautiful track with a traditional country vibe with Bruce Bouton on steel guitar. William Michael Morgan’s smooth collaborative vocals add another layer to the throw-back vibe.
“I’ve always loved Karen’s music,” says Morgan. “We’ve both made a stand for country music and the first time I heard ‘Me Again,’ I just knew this is her time. To be a part of it, is truly an honor.”
In celebration of the single release, Waldrup is launching the “Me Again” mini tour that will wrap with an intimate Nashville performance at Analog at the Hutton Hotel on November 6 presented by Country Rebel. Morgan will join her for a performance of “Me Again.”
