I hope you all got to be part of the Facebook Live earlier today. William Michael Morgan joined Hunter Kelly from Rare Country, and Caroline Kate, at the Country Music Hall of Fame Museum in Nashville to talk about a new exhibit that will feature some of William Michael’s memories.
William talked about growing up on real country music, and his exhibit will be right next to one of his favorites, Keith Whitley. Among the items that will be on display are William Michael’s first guitar, which was autographed by many songwriters he met in Nashville. “I’ve been blessed to write with some of the best songwriters in the world,” William Michael told the interviewers.
He showed us newspaper clippings from when he was very young, growing up in Mississippi, and even a baby spoon that his mother donated to the exhibit. They asked him what it felt like to have his personal items on display right next to Keith Whitley, he responded – “I’ll let you know when it sinks in”.
The Opry poster that will be on display with the exhibit is from his first appearance on the Grand Ole Opry, and since then, he said, he has done 26 shows at the Opry (or Ryman Auditorium). He talked about a show he did way back when he was young, where he competed in Loretta Lynn’s Talent Search at her ranch in Hurricane Mills.
He shared his first album, which was recorded at his house, with a little recorder – his dad took care of the recording for that album. And, of course showed and talked about his new album “Vinyl”.
If you missed this, I hope you will head over to Rare Country’s Facebook page and check it out. Great interview, great look at what‘s coming up with William Michael’s exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame.
