Sidewalk/Curb recording artist Morgan Frazier can mark “have my face on a car” off of her bucket list. Frazier and Stand For The Silent, an anti-bullying organization Morgan has teamed up with, will be featured on a racecar on Oct. 11 at the Dollar General 300 NASCAR Nationwide Race. NASCAR driver Kevin Swindell will drive the #98 car of Biagi-DenBeste Racing. The race marks the conclusion of week one for Morgan Frazier and Stand For The Silent’s school tour, which is making stops in Knoxville, Tenn., New Bern, NC, Charleston, SC and Charlotte, NC. Additional schools across the U.S. are in development and will be announced soon.
In their pledge to never stop the fight against school bullying, Kirk and Laura Smalley conduct Stand for the Silent presentations at middle and high schools all across the world. Morgan Frazier will be joining select dates on the school tour where she will perform her brand new single, “Hey Bully,” a song she co-wrote about her personal experiences. The thought-provoking music video for “Hey Bully” was recently filmed and is set to be released in late October.

About Morgan Frazier:
Recognized in Country Weekly’s “Ones To Watch in 2013,” Morgan Frazier’s remarkable journey began in a small Texas town where she made her way to Nashville by literally going door-to-door. At just nine years old, Morgan recorded her first CD in her hometown of Breckenridge, Texas. Although they had no formal plans to market or sell the CD’s, Morgan’s family believed in their little girl’s talent and ordered one thousand copies. For the next two years, Morgan and her family traveled all over the South and Southwest selling over thirty thousand copies of her album. At the age of sixteen, Morgan followed her dream to Nashville where she perfected her songwriting craft and honed her chops at the legendary Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge. Not long after, she signed a publishing and recording contract with Curb Records’ imprint Sidewalk Records. Having experienced bullying first hand, Morgan co-wrote her latest single, “Hey Bully” to bring awareness to the growing epidemic.
