Sultry country songstress Lorrie Morgan is one of the best-selling female artists in country music history, who began her career with a record-setting bang, releasing three consecutive platinum albums beginning with 1989’s Leave The Light On followed by Something In Red, then Watch Me, which celebrates its 25 anniversary this year. In a short time, she became not just a country superstar but a household name, thanks to such blockbuster radio-friendly singles as Five Minutes, Something In Red, and A Picture Of Me (Without You).
Loretta Lynn Morgan was born to make music. At 13, she made her first and everlasting impression on the country music world when she played at The Grand Ole Opry, making her one of the youngest to have made her debut at the Mother Church of Country Music. Three short years later after her dad, country music star George Morgan’s passing, Lorrie launched her own career touring with her father’s band. She made history of her own when she became a lifetime member of the Grand Ole Opry at the age of 24 — one of the youngest to ever become a member.
A Nashville, Tennessee native, Lorrie landed her first recording contract in 1988 and in 1990 had her first number one single, Five Minutes. Morgan’s second album, Something in Red, was released in 1991 and became RIAA-Certified Platinum. Watch Me, her third album, was released in 1992 and contained the number-one single, What Part of No. Watch Me also sold over 1 million copies, making Morgan the first female country artist to have three albums in a row to be RIAA-Certified Platinum®. In 1994 she was voted “Female Vocalist of the Year” by country music fans at TNN’s Music City News Awards. She would earn this honor again in 1996, 1997 and 1998. Morgan’s Greatest Hits album, which produced her third number-one single, I Didn’t Know My Own Strength, was released in 1995. Lorrie Morgan established her place as a country star—a modern woman making country music history.
Lorrie’s success is defined by her love of a great song and ability to sell it. Over the past two decades, as musical trends came and went, Lorrie has remained true to herself. Today, Lorrie has become the essence of country music femininity and a renaissance woman of the genre recognized as royalty by her fans and her peers.
When she’s not on tour or in the recording studio, you’ll find her performing on stage at the legendary Grand Ole Opry or at home spending time with her husband Randy, her daughter Morgan, son Jesse, her grandchildren and her dogs Weezy, Puddin’ and Abby Ray in her hometown of Nashville, Tenn.
