Lorrie Morgan returns to Shawnee Bluff Vineyard! Tickets on Sale Sat, 2/27/16, at 8am.
Â Â Â Â Lorrie Morgan, the first woman in her genre to begin her career with three consecutive Platinum albums, re-emerges on Shanachie Entertainment with Letting go...Slow. It is a collection that showcases a rainbow of emotions, from darkest heartache to bright, shiny humor.
Â Â Â Â â€œWhere I am in my life right now, Iâ€™m not afraid to express what I feel, or what I donâ€™t feel,â€ she comments about the collectionâ€™s varied moods. â€œIâ€™m not afraid to express my views on anything, especially on being a woman.
Â Â Â Â â€œI have been a daughter, a bride, a mother, a divorcee, a widow, a single mother, a breadwinner and, ultimately, a survivor. In many ways, I am a living, breathing country song, and I know what I sing.
Â Â Â Â â€œI didnâ€™t want this to be just another album. I wanted it to be something that really moved me. When I listened to songs for it, Iâ€™d think, â€˜No, not that one. Iâ€™m not going to be able to sing that one, because Iâ€™m not going to be able to feel it.â€™ It was very important to me for this album to reflect the things that I am feeling today.â€
Â Â Â Â 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 â€œA Picture of Me Without Youâ€ and â€œI Guess You Had to Be There,â€ she ached with pain. She was feisty and sassy in â€œWatch Me,â€ â€œWhat Part of Noâ€ â€œFive Minutesâ€ and â€œI Didnâ€™t Know My Own Strength.â€ She has kicked up her stiletto heels in fun on her hits â€œExcept for Mondayâ€ and â€œGo Away.â€ On her epic â€œSomething in Redâ€ she was an anguished, struggling everywoman.
Â Â Â Â Her performances onÂ 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 reinvention
