Lorrie Morgan

Give wide berth to major country music lineage en route to the Birthplace of Country Music.

Presenting: Lorrie Morgan. Her guest? Hers and the late Keith Whitley’s son, Jesse Keith Whitley. Experience country royalty when Morgan occupies the spotlight at the Paramount Center for the Arts in Bristol, Tennessee, on Sunday, Oct. 6. Morgan and son, they’re the daughter and grandson of the late George Morgan, the “Candy Kisses” star and member of the Country Music Hall of Fame.

Lorrie Morgan accentuated her pedigree with a hall of fame worthy career. More hits than what grows in Willie Nelson’s backyard, Morgan’s lineup includes such keepers as “Five Minutes” and “What Part of No.” Morgan’s style marks as her own. Bound in layers of spunk as driven by a distinctive voice, Morgan belongs well within the vast canon of country music essence.
