Lorrie Morgan in Concert
Mar 03, 2018
Country star Lorrie Morgan, one of the most eloquently emotive country vocalists of modern times, spent a lifetime becoming an overnight sensation. The road to her explosion on the scene as the first woman in country music with three consecutive Platinum albums began with her birth in Nashville as the daughter of Country Music Hall of Fame member George Morgan, and being given the iconic name, Loretta Lynn Morgan. She made her debut on the Grand Ole Opry stage at age 13, singing "Paper Roses." She comes to the Arena Theatre as part of the launch of her first new solo album in five years.
Morgan has long been the envy of her peers for her lustrous vocal phrasing and the down-to-earth believability of her torchy performances. On records such as “A Picture of Me Without You” and “I Guess You Had to Be There,” she ached with pain. She was feisty and sassy in “Watch Me,” “What Part of No” “Five Minutes” and “I Didn’t Know My Own Strength.” She has kicked up her stiletto heels in fun on her hits “Except for Monday” and “Go Away.” On her epic “Something in Red” she was an anguished, struggling everywoman. Her performances on Letting Go….Slow can match any of her earlier efforts, for they are among the most vibrant of her career. The collection is divided equally between new songs and her reinventions of country classics.
Her first three albums, Leave the Light On (1989), Something in Red (1991) and Watch Me (1992), all earned Platinum Record awards. Her Greatest Hits collection (1999) is also Platinum. War Paint (1994), Greater Need (1996) and Shakin’ Things Up (1997) are all Gold Record winners. Lorrie Morgan maintained her recording pace in the new millennium, and sparkled in the lavish Enchanted Christmas productions at the opulent Opryland Resort in Nashville, eventually taking that show on the road.
