About Burgundy Ball Entertainer Lorrie Morgan

Lorrie Morgan has been around great songs and country music all her life. She is a Nashville native who is the daughter of Country Music Hall of Fame member George Morgan. She made her debut on the Grand Ole Opry stage at age 13, singing “Paper Roses.” Morgan’s father died suddenly of a heart attack at age 51. She was l6 at the time and just beginning her musical career. Morgan began making records shortly thereafter and was honored with induction into the Opry cast when she was just 24.

Morgan married fellow country singer Keith Whitley in 1986. She was signed to RCA Records in 1987, and her onslaught of hits began the following year. Whitley’s tragic death of an alcohol overdose in 1989 left her a widowed working mother. Their duet “Til a Tear Becomes a Rose” earned her a 1990 CMA award.

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.

She sang “The Sad Cafe” on “Common Threads: Songs of the Eagles,” which was named the CMA Album of the Year in 1994. Country fans voted Lorrie Morgan their TNN/Music City News Female Vocalist of the Year in 1994, 1996, 1997 and 1998.

Morgan maintained her recording pace in the new millennium, releasing collections in 2002, 2004, 2009 and 2010. In 2012 and 2013, Morgan starred and sparkled in the lavish Enchanted Christmas productions at the opulent Opryland Resort in Nashville. She took that show on the road in 2014. Her album, “Letting Go…Slow,” was released in 2016.

In 2013, she teamed with fellow Opry star Pam Tillis for the duet CD “Dos Divas.” The two hit makers then embarked on a two-year joint tour that sold out every appearance.
