Reid Morris Talks Living in Nashville, Fly Fishing and Knockin’ Down Ducks in the Mississippi Delta

Brad Curry Raised Rowdy Contributor

Growing up in a town with roughly 26,000 people, it was fairly easy for singer/songwriter Reid Morris to find a fishin’ hole or a patch of woods to hunt in Carrollton, Georgia. It also helps that he gets to look out his window of his farm and see open fields and a big pond. Since moving to Nashville, this has not been the case.

“Living in the city has definitely limited my ability to be outdoors but when I get some free time, I love to go fishing at some nearby lakes like Percy Priest. I also love taking weekend trips to the mountains and fishing in the Smokies. Home for me is fairly close so I hunt and fish there the most.”

Before moving to Nashville in the fall of 2019, Morris and his buddies took a trip out west and started in the White River in Arkansas, where they managed to land nearly twenty trout. They then made a stop out in Colorado, where they hiked in the Rocky Mountains and saw Cody Jinks at one of our favorite venues, Red Rocks.

Fishing isn’t Morris’s only outdoor hobby. For anyone who lives south of the Mason-Dixon, it’s safe to say that duck hunting is king in the fall and winter months. Morris has spent many mornings in the duck blind with none other than Greg Camp, owner of Halo Waterfowl. You may have heard of this company from the “Duckman” himself, Riley Green. “I’ve gotten to hunt with Greg and the Halo Waterfowl crew quite a few times. We’ve hunted several local holes and the Mississippi Delta.”

While Morris doesn’t plan to release any new music in 2020, that doesn’t mean that he’s not writing! “As of right now, I don’t have anything planned to release any new music this year, but as crazy as 2020 has already been, anything could happen, right?”
