Sara Morgan New Track: Church In a Bar

One year after making her Billboard chart debut, Sara Morgan is taking us to “Church in a Bar”. BYOB (Bring Your Own Boots) – two-step required. Recorded at the famed Allentown Studios (formerly Jack’s Tracks), in Nashville, TN.

After years of stumbling through churches and playing music in bars and feeling like the two could only clash, I found a place that combined both things and it changed my life.” It is a place where everyone is welcome, where everyone is loved. As unorthodox as it sounds, she goes to Church in a Bar.
