Morgan Evans is getting ready to drop his debut album, Things That We Drink To.

The album is deeply personal to him, writing about topics that had a huge influence on his life. One such event was the death of his manager of ten years, Rob Potts. The song shares the name of the album, and became his title track.

“It was my manager of ten years,” Evans told PopCulture. “He was an Aussie guy named Rob Potts and he discovered me, and he was the first person to believe me. He brought me to America and introduced me to Nashville and all those kinds of things. And he died really suddenly in a motorcycle accident last year. So it was really tough. Really tough. And especially tough that he put so much work into my career and he doesn’t get to see this album come out.”

The song easily became one of the most personal tracks that he’s ever written. Evans certainly felt that it was necessary as a tribute to the man who helped him become who he is today.

As expected, the 33-year-old also dedicated a few songs in his debut on his wife, fellow country artist Kelsea Ballerini. She even features on a track, “Dance with Me.”

Things That We Drink To releases on Oct. 12.
