Last night, after performing at the new Opry Classics show in Nashville, Lorrie Morgan jumped over to the Opry Originals store to sign copies of her new CD, I Walk Alone.
The CD includes 13 songs that Lorrie co-wrote and co-produced. The songs include “Mirror, Mirror,” “Woman Thing,” and the title cut “I Walk Alone.”
Lorrie has also recently completed an album of classics, complete with an all-star cast of musicians and guests. The CD was recorded entirely live in the studio with Wally Wilson at the production controls. “A Moment in Time” includes classics like “Are You Lonesome Tonight,” “By the Time I Get to Phoenix,” “After the Fire is Gone,” which is a duet with Tracy Lawrence, and “Easy Lovin’,” a duet with Rau Malo.
I’ve always been a Lorrie Morgan Fan. And I’m obviously not the only one. Over the years, Lorrie has had 14 top ten hits, seven of her 12 albums have gone gold and platinum, and she has received four Female Vocalist of the Year awards.
Of Lorrie’s 12 albums, I think my favorite is The Color of Roses, which includes “Something in Red,” “What Part of No,” “Fly Me to the Moon,” “My Favorite Things,” “A Picture of Me” (Without You), and many others. You can visit Lorrie’s web site to see all of her albums, and the songs included on them.
She doesn’t have a lot of dates up on her tour schedule right now, but she will be back at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville on June 9, and at the Little Nashville Opry in Nashville, Ind., on July 11.
Here’s a clip from Ralph Emery’s television show on the old Nashville Network, which includes a little of Lorrie’s interview, as well as her song, “What Part of No.” Gives you a little look at a group of some of country’s greatest singers. I think this is a great video.
I better head off to work – It’s Friday! Hope everyone is getting ready for a fun weekend. I’m not sure I really have any plans, but you can bet I’ll wake up on Saturday morning and find something great to do!
And remember, tomorrow evening I’ll be drawing the winners of the “Unstoppable” CD. So if you haven’t entered yet, you have until noon Saturday to e-mail your entries to firstname.lastname@example.org. Remember to include your name and mailing address, so I can have the CD mailed to you, if you are selected one of the winners.
Talk to you soon!
