Lorrie Morgan

Lorrie Morgan

Loretta Lynn Morgan was born to make music. Barely a teenager when she made her first, and everlasting, impression on country music fans, its legend sand the community, Lorrie Morgan, a child of the Opry, staked her claim as being one of the youngest to have made his/her debut at the Mother Church of Country. Taking center stage at the Grand Ole Opry, alongside her father, George Morgan, young Miss Morgan performed her rendition of "Paper Roses." --Lorrie Morgan, however, was no "imitation," she was as pure and authentic as a freshwater pearl.

Three short years later, after her dad's passing, Lorrie became a road warrior to launch her own career, touring with her father's band. Walking in her father's footsteps, she kept his memory alive while winning countless fans encroaching her rights to become a front-and-center entertainer. Applauded for her talents and commitment to country music and her heritage, Lorrie made history of her own when she became a lifetime member of the Grand Ole Opry at the age of twenty-five; Lorrie was the youngest person ever to become a member of the Grand Ole Opry.

Today, Lorrie has become the essence of country music femininity. Having blossomed from a bright-eyed Opry starlet to carrying the torch for many a lady trendsetter—Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, Tammy Wynette—Lorrie Morgan has become a renaissance woman of the genre recognized as royalty by her fans and her peers.

A singer, songwriter, worldwide entertainer on the performing and theatrical stage, a producer, duet partner, wife, mother and now, a grandmother, Lorrie Morgan the songstress has sold over six million records and a trophy room adorned with reminders of gold and platinum successes (including fourteen top ten hits, twelve recorded albums and four Female Vocalist of the Year awards). Her duet partners have included the likes of Frank Sinatra, Johnny Mathis, Andy Williams and The Beach Boys. She's performed on Broadway and abroad.
