GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE Version 2, June 1991 Copyright (C) 1989, 1991 Free Software Foundation, Inc. 51 Franklin St, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110, USA Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this license document, but changing it is not allowed. Preamble The licenses for most software are designed to take away your freedom to share and change it. By contrast, the GNU General Public License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free software--to make sure the software is free for all its users. This General Public License applies to most of the Free Software Foundation's software and to any other program whose authors commit to using it. (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by the GNU Library General Public License instead.) You can apply it to your programs, too. When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things. To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights. These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it. For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that you have. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the source code. And you must show them these terms so they know their rights. We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and (2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy, distribute and/or modify the software. Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free software. If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original authors' reputations. Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software patents. We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the program proprietary. To prevent this, we have made it clear that any patent must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all. The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and modification follow. GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION 0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed under the terms of this General Public License. The "Program", below, refers to any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program" means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law: that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it, either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another language. (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in the term "modification".) Each licensee is addressed as "you". Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not covered by this License; they are outside its scope. The act of running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the Program (independent of having been made by running the Program). Whether that is true depends on what the Program does. William Michael Morgan | For The Country Record

William Michael Morgan – EP Review

william-michael-morgan-ep-cover

Mississippi native William Michael Morgan is an up and coming country artist who has already made quite the impression on the industry and critics alike with his debut single, “I Met A Girl”, which has reached number 34 on the Country Airplay chart. The song was written and performed by Sam Hunt, but Morgan made it his own and can lay claim to the best version. The single is a sweet, slow building love song, made even better by Morgan’s rich, pure country vocals. Morgan recently released his debut self-titled EP earlier this month. The record is a breath of fresh traditional country air in a scene that is currently clogged up with R&B and hip-hop influences.

William Michael Morgan ‘I Met A Girl’ – Single Review

william-michael-morgan-i-met-a-girl-single

William Michael Morgan is a new artist worthy of some note. The 20-year-old has been under development with Warner Music Nashville for a little while, attracting a grassroots fan base around the country for his neo-traditional sound. Now it looks like the label are gearing up to release his debut single, but beyond just having the appeal of a more purist sound than his peers on radio, William has done something very interesting. ‘I Met A Girl’ is in essence a Sam Hunt cover. Yes, you read that correctly. The track first appeared on one of Sam’s acoustic mixtapes that were distributed prior to his first radio release (‘Leave The Night On’) in order to build some buzz, but missed out on a place on Sam’s first studio record ‘Montevallo’. As a result, the Sam Hunt/Shane McAnally/Trevor Rosen (Trevor is a member of Old Dominion) co-write was primed to be cut, already with a significant young audience who would already be familiar with the song.
